Fox holds the rights to some of the biggest sporting properties in the world including the NFL, WWE, MLB and more. It covers everything from college basketball to Nascar motor-racing and beyond.

On top of that, Fox Sports currently has the right to show some of the biggest soccer competitions in the world to its increasingly soccer-loving American audience.


Which soccer events does Fox Sports show?

Fox Sports is America’s home of some of the biggest events from the world of international soccer, which is predominantly its focus when it comes to the beautiful game.

The FIFA World Cup, the UEFA European Championships, CONCACAF Gold Cup, CONMEBOL Copa America and the UEFA Nations League are all present on the Fox Sports network.

Fox Sports even covers qualifying for some of these huge international tournaments, including the FIFA World Cup.

However, despite being a huge carrier of international soccer events, Fox Sports also shows its fair share of club soccer, mostly from the North American region.

Its club rights include the CONCACAF Champions League, Major League Soccer (MLS), the Mexican top flight Liga MX, Canadian Premier League and more - some of the most important competitions for US-based soccer fans.

The best TV packages to get Fox Sports

Soccer fans in the US can watch the FIFA World Cup, MLS and more on Fox Sports with TV providers like DirecTV, Verizon and Spectrum cable.

Existing or new customers to these traditional media companies can enjoy watching Fox Sports on their televisions.

However, nowadays, more and more soccer fans are cutting the cord and looking into the myriad of live streaming options available in the US.

Fox Sports can be accessed at a much more reasonable price and a much more convenient way with these streaming platforms.


Best Fox Sports Live Streaming Options

Fox Sports, and all the soccer that it shows, can be accessed on a number of live streaming platforms in the US.

Fans can watch the FIFA World Cup and more on FS1, the primary Fox Sports channel, via live streaming on FuboTV for just $74.99 a month. There are also free trials and other offers available from Fubo. What’s more, the other channels which Fubo holds have their own soccer offerings.

Another very popular option is Sling TV. FS1, and a host of other sports channels, can be accessed via live streaming on Sling for as little as $20 per month. Their blue and orange plans offer subscribers a raft of sporting action. They are well worth exploring.

Can You Watch Fox Sports Using a VPN?

Fans from around the world can watch live soccer on Fox Sports with a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Via one of those aforementioned streaming services, like FuboTV or Sling, soccer fans can enjoy the biggest games no matter where they are.

Even if you don’t reside in the US, you can access Fox Sports soccer live streams wherever you are, with the help of a VPN.

Assuming you have checked the rules and regulations regarding VPNs where you are, and done your due diligence regarding the best VPN to go with, there’s little stopping you from accessing soccer live streams on Fox Sports, wherever you may be.

Best Fox Sports Soccer Pundits and Commentators

Fox Sports compliments its coverage of international soccer, like the FIFA World Cup, and club soccer, such as the MLS, with a wide array of talented, well-known soccer broadcasters.

In terms of play-by-play announcers, the likes of John Strong and Ian Darke are regulars. Alongside them, Fox Sports viewers can expect to hear big names like Warren Barton and Cobi Jones.

Meanwhile, in the studio, USMNT legends like Alexi Lalas and Maurice Edu regularly join hosts Rob Stone or Sara Walsh in analyzing and describing the action for soccer fans at home.

Pros and Cons of Fox Sports

The biggest pro of Fox Sports when it comes to soccer is that it is undoubtedly the place to be for international tournaments.

The ‘creme de la creme’ is on FS1. The FIFA World Cup, the Euros, you name it - it’s on Fox Sports.

The downside is their club soccer library. While Major League Soccer and Liga MX are growing in popularity in the states, and they are valuable properties, Fox will be looking to get their hands on English Premier League or Spanish La Liga rights in the years to come.
