The Season Pass will include every live MLS regular-season match, the playoffs, and the Leagues Cup, with no blackouts. Apple says that the MLS Season Pass will bring MLS to a much bigger worldwide audience.

"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," said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Services. "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."

Apple and Major League Soccer have inked a deal for a 10-year partnership. All 29 MLS clubs will have an ‌Apple TV‌ patch in a different color to mark agreement.

The MLS 2023 regular season will begin on February 25, with the 2022 MLS Cup champions Los Angeles FC to face off against the LA Galaxy at the Rose Bowl Stadium. All matches during the opening weekend will be free to watch through the ‌Apple TV‌ app.

Hm… looks like if you have season tickets to one of the MLS clubs (I do with the Seattle Sounders) you get the service for free:

“A subscription to MLS Season Pass will be included as part of full-season ticket packages with MLS clubs. A selection of MLS and Leagues Cup matches, including some of the biggest playoff matchups, will also be available at no additional cost to Apple TV+ subscribers, with a number of matches available for free on the Apple TV app. “

$80 per season for existing TV+ subscribers is a great deal. Can’t wait.

it called a subscription service. Expect to pay for everything. it going to be interesting. Because I believe that us football fans are going to be doing the very same thing. Apple is going to take over Sunday Ticket. How will they handle pricing? That’s the question.

update- 9 to 5 Mac has my answer:Named “MLS Season Pass,” the subscription unlocks access to all MLS games, live and on demand. The service is priced at $14.99 per month, or $99 per season. Apple TV+ subscribers will be able to watch some games at no cost, and can get the full MLS Season Pass at a discounted rate …

It’s going to cost money: “Starting February 1, fans can subscribe to MLS Season Pass on the Apple TV app for $14.99 per month during the season or $99 per season, and Apple TV+ subscribers can sign up at a special price of $12.99 per month and $79 per season.”

I'll happily pay $80/year to watch MLS games. Been a fan for a while and I'm happy there will be no blackouts. I hate MLB.tv black outs your local team. That's the one team I want to watch, I'd pay to be able to watch my local team only. Sunday Ticket....all I want is the red zone channel. And I'd pay for all NCAA basketball and football games too for $80 or so a year each.
