Which MLS games can you watch on Amazon Prime?
The 2022 Major League Soccer regular season kicks off today as Philadelphia Union and Minnesota are enlisted with opening the campaign.
MLS returns on Saturday with New York City FC trying to become the first champion to defend ts title in a decade, in a season which included a raft of new faces across the league.
Among the newcomers are Swiss Xherdan Shaqiri, Brazilian Douglas Costa and Italian Lorenzo Insigne, who will join Toronto FC in July, while established players such as Argentine Gonzalo Higuaín and Mexicans Javier 'Chicharito' Hernández and Carlos Vela are aiming for their first MLS title.
Last season ended in December with New York City FC being crowned for the first time in its history.
With the Manchester City business group propping up the club, the New York team now embark on a challenge that no one has achieved since the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2012 in retaining the title.
"MLS now is really, really competitive," advised head coach, Norwegian Ronny Deila. "The level is much higher and there are a lot of good teams. Repeating a title defence now is much more difficult than years ago."
Deila is counting on the same winning team, including the continuity, for the moment, of Argentine Valentin Castellanos, last season's top scorer and courted by River Plate of his country.
Among the teams in contention for the title in the 27th season of MLS are Atlanta United, Orlando City and the New England Revolution.
