Apple TV free live stream: Watch MLS Season Pass games all free to access this weekend on Matchweek 4


As the 2024 season begins to dig its feet into the sand, Major League Soccer is hoping to draw casual fans into the arena for the long campaign ahead.

With that in mind, Apple TV has slated all games for Matchweek 4 across Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17 as free to air on MLS Season Pass.

Each of the 13 fixtures across the two weekend days will be accessible for all fans to view, regardless of whether they have an active subscription to MLS Season Pass. Most weekends, only up to six matches are available for free access, but this weekend has been earmarked as a special event.

Eastern Conference leaders Inter Miami are on the road in the nation’s capital, although they’ll be without an injured Lionel Messi against unbeaten DC United. The LA Galaxy and St Louis City, both unbeaten to start the year, meet in California, while early success story Minnesota United welcome defending West champions LAFC to Allianz Field.

Finally, the Seattle Sounders play an afternoon matinee at home against the Colorado Rapids in a game not only free to air on Apple TV but also nationally televised on Fox. Sunday’s nationally televised game sees Atlanta United taken on Orlando City SC on FS1 in the evening.
