Soccer fans unite! Exciting times are coming with the upcoming FIFA World Cup in November. But too many fans things can become a bit confusing. There is so much soccer to watch and quite often you don't know where to start... In 2021 we had some shocking Media Rights business announcements, especially with regards to the rights to the English Premier League. DAZN lost the rights to FuboTV, making it new mecca for OTT Sports when it comes to soccer and the amount of competitions it will offer starting next August. Meanwhile Canadian Men's team fans had the chance in 2020-21 to watch their team qualify for Qatar through both OneSoccer (MediaPro Canada) and SportsNet channels (Rogers) after it became obvious the men actually had a chance to make it all the way in their long road to qualification. Football, or Soccer as we know it, has become the lab for Media Companies checking out where sports fans might follow them. Cordcutters, Cordnevers make a big portion of this testing, but when it comes to main events such as World Cup Qualification, Olympics, FIFA World Cup, we suddenly seem to recognize that many fans still have cable and satellite subscriptions. The most recent media rights deal between Apple and MLS for the next 10 years on a global scale will have an affect on next year's season and there are still many thing to be ironed out, like potentially other deals for MLS on Canadian TV networks. To make your choice a bit easy I have made an overview of the biggest leagues and competitions going forward in 2022/23, so you can make up your mind what to choose from and what to pick as must-see Soccer on Video.
