When we think of football, we generally think of the EPL (English Premier League) or the Champions League, with leagues that call it ‘soccer’ giving some of the more traditionalists chills. But for those who simply enjoy the beautiful game, tuning into overseas competitions means you can get your football fix all year round.
Major League Soccer (MLS) is America’s football competition, drawing in names like David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Australia’s own Tim Cahill over the years, keeping fans across the globe entertained. But like many American sports, watching in Australia means you either have to wake up extra early, or run the risk of having the end result spoilt before you get a chance to watch the game. But where can you watch all the action from the MLS in Australia? Canstar Blue looks at where to catch every clearance, cross and goal for the upcoming season.
