MLS Direct Kick is an Out-of-Market Sports Package distributed by most cable and satellite providers in North America. The package allows its subscribers to see over 130 Major League Soccer regional games including regular-season and MLS Cup playoff matches. The package costs $79 for residential customers and $100 for bars, restaurants, and other commercial subscribers. The target market for this package (based on advertisements) is soccer fans who are unable to see specific games because they have moved out of that team's market.



MLS Direct Kick is available with these cable and satellite providers:

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 in ABC/ESPN2, TeleFutura/Galavisión, and Fox Soccer Channel/Fox Sports en Español 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.


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.
