As part of a new 10-year relationship between the league and Apple, Major League Soccer today revealed its regular season schedule for 2023, with every match airing live in the Apple TV app in more than 100 countries. Most games require an MLS Season Pass subscription, while select games are free for Apple TV+ subscribers.
Starting on February 1, MLS Season Pass will cost $99 for the entire season or $14.99 a month. According to Apple, Apple TV+ subscribers will be able to subscribe at a discounted rate of $12.99 per month and $79 for a season. As a benefit, MLS season ticket holders will get a free subscription to MLS Season Pass.
According to Apple, most games in the 2023 season will start at 7:30 p.m. local time on Saturdays and, in certain cases, Wednesdays. A few matches will also be shown on Fox networks in the US and Canada’s TSN and RDS.
Highlights of the 2023 season schedule are listed in Apple’s press release, including the “MLS is Back” opening weekend games on February 25.
The iPhone, Mac, iPad, Apple TV box, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Roku, Xbox Series X and Amazon Fire TV streaming sticks, Roku TVs, and some LG, Samsung, Sony, and Vizio smart TV models all support the Apple TV app. Earlier today, there was speculation that the app would soon be available for Android cellphones.
