For those looking to watch Major League Soccer this year, Apple’s MLS Season Pass is now available worldwide through the Apple TV app. Although the 2023 season won’t officially kick off for another few weeks, Apple is already making some content available for free in the build up to the first game.

Last year Apple confirmed that it had struck a deal with MLS to become the exclusive home for the 2023 season and beyond. An MLS Season Pass was then announced as the subscription that unlocks access to every game during the season, including all cup matches. All of which will become available to subscribers without any blackouts, and in more than 100 countries and regions.

The new MLS season officially begins on February 25 when Atlanta United host San Jose Earthquakes. Ahead of that game, Apple has now officially opened up the option to subscribe to its MLS Season Pass. If already a season ticket holder then an MLS Season Pass is included with the season ticket at no additional cost. Otherwise, soccer fans will need to consider signing up for a paid subscription.

For those wanting to go the monthly route, Apple is charging $14.99 per month for a subscription. For those wanting to save on the cost, it is possible to sign up for an MLS Season Pass at $99 for the entire season. It is worth noting that these prices are the non-Apple TV Plus rates. If already subscribed to Apple TV Plus, then the monthly cost of adding MLS Season Pass drops down to $12.99, and the season price drops down to $79.

Regardless of whether an Apple TV Plus subscriber or not, soccer fans can sign up to the MLS Season Pass through the Apple TV website or through the Apple TV app on a supported device, including Apple’s own devices and various third-party streaming players, smart TVs, and game consoles.

Ahead of the start of the season, Apple has confirmed that it is now offering a variety of on-demand soccer content for free. This includes league and club highlights from last season, full replays of classic matches, and documentary-style vignettes.

For those also subscribed to Apple Music, Apple is making available club-curated playlists that feature songs and artists embodying the culture of each club. This is in addition to two general MLS-inspired playlists that can also be accessed within the Apple Music app.
