How To Watch The UEFA World Cup Qualifiers in the US
ESPN will exclusively airtime UEFA World Cup Qualifiers over the next week. The majority of the matches will be streamed live on ESPN+ with a handful of matches airing on ESPN2 and ESPN3. To watch all the matches, you will need a subscription to toe ESPN+, and I recommend a Live streaming Service with a free trial that carries ESPN2 and ESPN3. You can subscribe to ESPN+ for just $6.99 per month. Check out our full explainer on ESPN Plus. Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, and fuboTV all offer free trials that last 7-days and carry ESPN2 and ESPN3.
Below are the steps to follow to watch every UEFA qualifier over the next week using the ESPN app. It’s the easiest way to watch all the qualifiers, and the app is supported on just about every streaming device and smart TV on the market.
