Does anyone remember a world before ESPN+? When we were stuck with only the sports that were shown on traditional TV? Those were dark times, indeed. And it makes us appreciate things even more when we have a week like we're about to see on the streaming service.
Let's just dive right in.
The MLS season gets going on Saturday, Feb. 29. Some will be on traditional television, of course. But ESPN+ also is the home of some 345 out-of-market games and on-demand replays. That's on top of daily MLS coverage and expert analysis. So if you're into the MLS, you're going to want to subscribe to ESPN+. Check out the full ESPN+ MLS schedule here.
Need more soccer? In Italy, you'll be able to catch Juventus vs. Inter Milan, and Aston Villa and Manchester City vie for England's Carabao Cup title — all on March 1.
Also coming up this weekend is UFC Fight Night Norfolk. (As in Virginia.) It'll feature Joseph Benavidez vs. Deiveson Figueiredo — the former is the top-ranked fighter in the flyweight division, the latter is No. 3 — and featherweights Felicia Spencer vs. Zarah Fairn.
Also this week are more than 85 college basketball games, including Kansas State-Baylor on Feb. 25. You can get the full college basketball schedule here.
The NHL is still doing its thing too, with some 11 games on the schedule this week. That includes the Rangers and Islanders going at it in New York City on Feb. 25, and the Pens at Ducks on Feb. 28. Check out the full NHL schedule here.
Or if cricket is more your thing — and it is for a lot of ex-pats — you can get the India Tour of New Zealand 2nd Test starting Feb. 28.
So, yeah. There's a lot going on this week. Hit up the full schedule below.
