The out-of-market MLS Live matches on ESPN+ come on the heels of 31 matches televised on ESPN networks (ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes) during the five-week MLS is Back Tournament at the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando. The tournament’s final tonight between the Portland Timbers and Orlando City SC will air on ESPN and ESPN Deportes at 8:30 p.m. ET.

The first phase of Major League Soccer’s return to play will conclude Monday, Sept. 14. ESPN’s linear television networks (ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes) have the option to pick up matches as the regular season progresses.
