How to Watch the 2022 MLS Opening Weekend on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV & More

The 2022 MLS regular season kicks off this weekend with the league’s 28 teams starting their campaigns for a chance to win the MLS Cup. Defending champions New York City FC will be looking to become the first back-to-back champions since the LA Galaxy’s 2011 and 2012 campaigns. Charlotte FC is entering their inaugural season and will be looking to start their franchise off on a high note with a win on opening weekend.

MLS is now in their 27th season and their current media rights deal will be coming to an end at season’s end. Amazon and Apple are among potential bidders for the league’s streaming rights, with traditional media companies Fox and ESPN expected to join the race to keep rights to the league.
