The 2023 Major League Soccer regular season schedule has been released, with the league’s 29th club, St. Louis CITY SC, debut season as its highlight.
Additionally, Major League Soccer and Apple will launch MLS Season Pass for the upcoming season, which will include access to all regular-season games and the Audi 2023 MLS Cup Playoffs and Leagues Cup1.
Fans can watch every MLS game with MLS Season Pass on various devices, including smart TVs, streaming devices, set-top boxes, game consoles, Apple devices, and the web at tv.apple.com.
The launch of MLS Season Pass on Feb. 1, 2023, marks the official start of the 10-year partnership between MLS and Apple, marking a first for a major professional sports league.
The MLS Season Pass is Apple’s current most significant investment in live sports streaming. Major League Baseball games were free to watch earlier this year on Apple TV+.
Most games in the 2023 season will be played on Saturdays and select Wednesdays, with 7:30 p.m. local start times.
The five-hour live whip-around show with the MLS Season Pass will feature all of the crucial moments from each game, starting with the Eastern Conference games and ending with the Western Conference games (7:30 p.m. ET-12:30 a.m. ET).
Rivalry Week and the All-Star Game will be back in the MLS in 2023. Rivalry Week will take place in May 2023. All 47 MLS and Liga MX teams will compete in the new Leagues Cup, which will begin in July and last through August. On Oct. 21, 2023, MLS Decision Day will also be back.
Several MLS and Leagues Cup games, including some of the biggest playoff matchups, will also be accessible to Apple TV+ customers at no additional cost. Some games are also made available for free via the Apple TV app. A few matches will also be broadcast on the FOX networks in the U.S. and Canada, as well as on TSN and RDS.
