Twitter to stream 24 Univision MLS matches in English in 2018

Beginning this weekend with the Real Salt Lake-LAFC game, Twitter will stream live MLS matches broadcast by Univision and made available in English in the United States.

The agreement to stream 24 games is part of a three-year deal MLS signed with Twitter. MLS will also provide Twitter with a package of content each week. Twitter will in turn offer advertising packages for the content.

MLS has worked with Twitter on league events in recent years as it places more and more emphasis on social media.
“MLS constantly strives to connect with fans in new and innovative ways,” said Chris Schlosser, MLS's senior vice president, media. “Our fans are the youngest and most socially engaged in pro sports, which is why we are excited to partner with Twitter to feature live matches on their platform.”

In 2017, the NASL's San Francisco Deltas streamed home games on Twitter.
