CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers continue this week. Eight national soccer teams from Canada, Honduras, El Salvador, the United States, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Jamaica will play a round-robin tournament where each team plays 14 games (2 against each team) between September 2, 2021, and March 30, 2022. The top 3 teams after the round will play in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The fourth-place team will have one last chance to make the 2022 World Cup in the inter-confederation play-offs in June 2022. The 5th through 8th place teams are eliminated from World Cup consideration. Three matchdays are coming up in October, and this article will explain how to watch every game even if you don’t have cable.
How To Watch The CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers: All but one match this week will be on Paramount+ so that you can watch free with this 7-day free trial. The exception is the Friday, November 12 match between USA and Mexico. That match will air live on ESPN2, which you can watch free using this 7-day free trial to fuboTV. You can also stream the match live on ESPN+, which you can subscribe to for $6.99 per month.
Where To Watch The CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers
To watch the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers, you will need Paramount+ to watch most games and ESPN2 to watch the occasional prime-time game. At the end of the article, I’ll keep a schedule updated where you can watch all the matches. Below I’ll summarize Paramount+ and the streaming services that carry ESPN2.
Paramount+ (formerly CBS All Access) live streams almost every CONCACAF match live throughout the 2021-2022 World Cup Qualifiers. You can try Paramount+ with a 7-day free trial, so there is no risk. After the trial, the service costs $4.99 per month with ads and $9.99 per month to watch without ads. There isn’t a long-term contract, and you can cancel at any time. Paramount+ is available on Roku Players, Apple TV, Xbox, Chromecast, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Fire TV Stick. See our review of Paramount+ for more information on this streaming service. You can watch online at the Paramount+ website or by downloading the Paramount+ app to your streaming device.
Matches Not on Paramount+
A handful of matches through the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers will be prime-time matches airing on ESPN2 this month. Some games will air on CBS Sports Network, but those will also be on Paramount+. Therefore, if you want to watch all the matches, you will need a way to watch ESPN2 occasionally. I recommend just grabbing a streaming service that carries ESPN2 and has a free trial or refund period when you need it. This way, you can just carry Paramount+ and still watch the occasional prime time match, not on the Paramount+ service for free. The services with ESPN2 are:
- fuboTV – Offers a 1-week free trial
- Hulu Live TV – offers a 7-day free trial to Hulu Live TV
- YouTube TV – offers a 1-week free trial
- DIRECTV Stream – cancel within 14 days and they refund your money. Sign up here.
This week’s match between USA and Mexico will also stream on ESPN+. You can sign up for ESPN+ for $6.99 per month. There is no contract, so you can cancel at any time. See our review of ESPN+ for more details.
You can learn more about these services in our guide on how to stream ESPN2 Live.
CONCACAF World Cup Qualifier TV Schedule
The table below shows where you can watch Matchday 4 through 6 of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers. Just use this 7-day free trial to Paramount+ to watch most games. To watch the games on ESPN2, use a link to one of the free trials mentioned in the previous section of this article. Matchday 7 isn’t until November. I’ll be sure to update the table in time for you to watch. If you are interested in watching The US play, we put together an article on how to watch every USMNT World Cup qualifier.
