Best live sports on ESPN+



ESPN+ provides unparalleled access to the world’s largest MMA promotion, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Subscribers of the ESPN+ base plan can enjoy a front-row seat to the octagon action with UFC Fight Night matches and behind-the-scenes content. But a word of caution: The numbered events cost extra due to UFC’s pay-per-view (PPV) model. In other words, you must fork up more dough to watch the most popular fighters duke it out.

College sports on ESPN+

College sports | Football, basketball, and more

ESPN+ really soars with college sports. Over 25 college conferences contribute to the thousands of live events featured on ESPN+. We’re talking ACC, Big 12, Ivy League, and SEC action. And, while there’s an emphasis on NCAA football and basketball, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. ESPN+ hosts college baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball, gymnastics, lacrosse, and more. Who said college life was all about textbooks and lectures?


NHL on ESPN+ | Hockey

Since the 2021–2022 NHL season, ESPN+ has become the go-to streaming platform for out-of-market NHL games. A whopping 1,050+ live out-of-market matches stream under the NHL Power Play on ESPN+ banner for no extra cost. Subscribers also get exclusive NHL content alongside on-demand replays of all NHL regular season and playoff games. Basically, ESPN+ is a must-have service for hockey fans.


PGA Tour Live | Golf

Like the NHL, the PGA Tour has a dedicated space on ESPN+. The PGA Tour Live on ESPN+ hub covers over 35 tournaments annually with multiple video feeds. Sure, you can watch those competitions across CBS, ESPN, NBC, and Golf Channel. But ESPN+ offers expanded coverage with alternate commentary, allowing you to follow featured groups and featured holes during most tournaments. That type of coverage comes in handy, especially during The Masters Tournament and PGA Championship.

La Liga on ESPN+

La Liga | Soccer

La Liga is home to some of Europe’s most popular soccer clubs. (Barcelona and Real Madrid, anyone?) The good news for Spanish fútbol fans is that you can stream all 380 La Liga games each season on ESPN+. Better yet, every game comes with English- and Spanish-language commentary. And trust us, the Spanish-language commentators bring an extra dose of passion.
