Every weekend, American soccer fans turn on their TVs beginning early in the morning (or even the middle of the night) to watch their favorite soccer teams and leagues. Whether it’s the Premier League in England, Germany’s Bundesliga, Major League Soccer or the United Soccer League here in the United States, or even Mexico’s Liga MX, we consume hundreds of hours a soccer each weekend.
Still, it’s a big planet and there is a ton of soccer that just isn’t easily accessed here in America that fans are interested in watching. It could be leagues that used to be on TV regularly but are now banished to internet streaming, like Italy’s Serie A or, thanks to beIN’s contract dispute with several cable companies, Spain’s La Liga. Or, it could be a league that just doesn’t have the reach here in the United States, like the Brasileiro (Brazil), Liga Águila (Colombia), the Primera División (Argentina), or even an African league like the ABSA Premiership (South Africa). Maybe, it’s a league that features a lot of American players, like Allsvenskan (Sweden), the Eredivisie (Netherlands), or the Danish Superliga (Denmark). Finally, it could be a league that is on the other side of the world who play while we sleep, like the Chinese Super League (China), the J.League (Japan), the K League (South Korea), or the A-League (Australia).
This week’s Community Corner asks you to let us know what leagues you want to watch but can’t, which leagues you wish were more accessible either on TV or the internet. Hit the comments and let us know which leagues you want to watch more, and why you wish you had more access to those leagues.
