You can (sign up online) and watch nearly every out-of-market game.
Watching Chicago Fire Matches All Season
Where you can watch Chicago Fire depends on a couple of factors. First, if the game is airing nationally on a network like FS1 or ESPN, then you will need that network to watch regardless of where you live. If you live inside their local TV market, Chicago Fire matches that aren’t nationally televised will be on The CFFC. If you live outside the Chicago Fire market, you can watch matches on ESPN+ if they aren’t airing on a national network. I’ll cover both possibilities and the streaming services you need to watch Chicago Fire throughout the 2022 season.
Watching Chicago Fire Matches in Market
Major League Soccer handles blackouts differently than most leagues. If a match is airing nationally on ESPN or TUDN, then the match won’t air on Chicago Fire’s local flagship networks. This season WGN-TV will air a majority of the club’s regional telecasts. You can watch all of those stations utilizing a TV antenna. However, anyone living in the Chicago Fire TV markets can stream those matches on the CFFC. Learn more on the CFFC website
While we cover national networks later in the article, ESPN and TUDN are available on the following services so you can watch nationally televised Chicago Fire matches.
