Soccer on TV

This Weekend's Soccer on TV

Another weekend, another busy slate of soccer on television.

MLS rolls on after the All Star game with the debut of the Video Assistant Referee system. The first competitive matches to use instant replay go down on Saturday night on MLS Live, but ESPN and FS1 have a trio of matches on TV this Sunday so you can check out how this system works.

The first of Europe’s big leagues gets their season started this weekend when France’s Ligue 1 kicks off with defending champions AS Monaco hosting Toulouse on Friday evening. There are a total of five French matches on TV this weekend, including Neymar’s potential Paris-Saint Germain’s opener on Saturday morning. Meanwhile, the  SuperCup kicks off the German season as Borussia Dortmund faces Bayern Munich.

Elsewhere, the NASL’s fall season rolls on, the USL has another full slate, and the Women’s European Championships conclude with Sunday’s final between the Netherlands and Denmark. The English League Championship also makes its debut on ESPN’s streaming service with four games streamed on their opening weekend.
