MLS Direct Kick

 

MLS Direct Kick

MLS Direct Kick is an Out-of-Market Sports Package distributed by most cable and satellite providers in North America. As of the 2011 season, package subscribers will be able to watch up to 221 Major League Soccer regular season games as well as some MLS Cup playoff matches.[1][2] The target market for this package (based on advertisements) is soccer fans who are unable to see games because they have moved out of that team's market.

Blackout restrictions

If a local MLS team is playing and the game is being seen locally, the associated feed on MLS Direct Kick is blacked out. Note also the games being televised on ABC/ESPN/ESPN2, TeleFutura/Galavisión, and NBC/NBC Sports Network telecasts are not available in the package due to the rights of those games being purchased by the previous television stations prior to the beginning of the season.

History

The MLS Direct Kick Package was known as The MLS/ESPN Shootout Package in the early years of MLS. The name change occurred prior to the 2005 MLS season.
