Major League Soccer 2023 season: How to watch MLS, schedule

Pep Guardiola was happy to see Manchester City grab the match by the scruff of its neck in their emphatic victory against Bournemouth.

Major League Soccer launched its latest campaign on the world in February, and there were plenty of changes to watch for the 28th season of MLS.

For one thing, there’s a new way to watch (see below) and it’s going to take some time before it settles in as the new norm for Major League Soccer.

The league has also launched a brand new team, as St. Louis City SC acquired a spot in MLS and met the ceremony with substance, winning its first five (5?!?) games and sitting in first place out West.

What else is going on early in the season? Seattle, LAFC, and FC Dallas have continued their history of riding high in the West, while the LA Galaxy , Sporting KC, and Portland are currently out of the playoff race.

Bruce Arena has New England dueling with FC Cincinnati, Nashville and Philadelphia for a place atop the East and plenty of others are in the discussion for the massive, open playoff race to come once Fall arrives in Major League Soccer.

Read on below for information on how to watch the games, as well as the schedule for the 2023 season.
