Apple and Major League Soccer (MLS) announced when next season’s League Pass on Apple TV+ will start.
Apple said the 2023 Season Pass will launch on February 1, 2023, and will contain no blackouts for users.
“MLS Season Pass will bring MLS to its biggest worldwide audience ever, in a more simple and streamlined way: All matches will be available on billions of devices through the Apple TV app on Apple devices, smart TVs, streaming devices, set-top boxes, and game consoles, and the web at tv.apple.com. The launch of MLS Season Pass marks the official kickoff of the 10-year partnership between MLS and Apple, a historic first for a major professional sports league.”
Players’ uniforms for each team will have an Apple TV patch and each patch will be in a different color for each squad.
Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Services, said he in particular is thrilled about the upcoming season and this new partnership with the MLS.
“There isn’t a more perfect time to introduce MLS Season Pass, coming off the heels of the most dramatic MLS Cup in history and with MLS as the fastest-growing soccer league in the world,” he said. “We’re counting down the days to February 2023 when fans everywhere can enjoy MLS Season Pass on billions of devices — all with no blackouts.”
Don Garber, the commissioner of MLS, said he is excited about this new partnership since it will be a great viewing experience for fans.
“We could not be more excited to bring our fans MLS Season Pass, a new home for all MLS matches and a wide variety of league and club content they can’t get anywhere else,” he said. “We have the most engaged and passionate fans in sports, and now they’ll have every match everywhere with MLS Season Pass.”
Pricing for MLS Season Pass on Apple TV+ will start at $14.99 a month or $99 a year. Current Apple TV+ subscribers can get cheaper prices for Season Pass, where it will be $12.99 a month or $79 per year.
The first game of the season will be played on February 25. All of the games during the “MLS is Back” opening weekend will be available to stream for free on the Apple TV app.
