How to Watch Soccer



If you are reading this post from anywhere within the United States, then you are living in the Golden Age of soccer programming on television and the Internet, both in terms of quantity and quality.

Aside from watching live or archived local collegiate games online, you could've watched any of the 2,855 games broadcast on thirty-six different U.S. channels in 2015. And it's not just the quantity of these soccer-viewing opportunities that should be acknowledged, but also the quality of these viewing opportunities.

From Foxborough, Massachusetts to Munich to Barcelona to Manchester, the ability for us to watch high-level soccer from around the world almost every day is unprecedented. And with that unique access comes tremendous opportunities to learn from the best players and best teams around the globe.

The image of a Soccer-Viewing Bingo card above is one helpful tool that not only allows developing soccer players to watch high-level soccer on TV for entertainment, but also for education.

And if you live in southern Maine, feel free to join our club for our first soccer-viewing get-together this Sunday (1/24) to watch Arsenal vs. Chelsea.
