Facebook to stream Major League Soccer games

Facebook announced Friday that it is teaming up with Major League Soccer  to bring live MLS games to the social network,  starting March 18.

As reported by USA TODAY, at least 22 games are scheduled to be streamed. The games can be found on the Univision Deportes’ Facebook page. MLS also plans more than 40 “Matchday Live” highlights and analysis shows that will stream on the MLS Facebook page.

The matches will be broadcast in English and available in the U.S. only, while the live shows will be available globally. The games, produced for watching on mobile devices, will include graphics, polls and questions for fans to participate in and interact with during the broadcasts.

The deal was made to help grow MLS’s audience.
