Major League Soccer has another packed schedule this weekend after a few US teams competed in the summer friendlies.
NYCFC and Inter Miami will start this weekend’s schedule on Saturday, July 23 (7/23/2022) at 7 p.m. ET. The match is set to broadcast on ESPN+. NYCFC (20-11-4, 38 points) is currently the second club with the highest points in the Eastern Conference, with 7 standings ahead of Inter Miami (20-7-9-22).
Though NYCFC seems to be on a winning run this season, Inter Miami recently played in the summer friendlies against FC Barcelona (0-6). The US team did lose against the international superstar team but according to the official MLS webpage, Inter Miami owner Jorge Mas and co-owner David Beckham aspire to bring Barcelona players to MLS.
Will Lionel Messi transfer to Inter Miami? Only time will tell.

What is ESPN Plus?
ESPN Plus is a streaming service from ESPN with a huge selection of live games from pro and college sports, including UFC, college football and basketball, international and Major League Soccer, MLB and more. It also has its own original TV series, and your subscription gets you access to exclusive content on ESPN.com.
Cable packages like Spectrum, Verizon and DirecTV don’t include ESPN Plus, so if you want the service’s exclusive coverage, you’re going to have to pay or find a bar that has the event on. (Conversely, ESPN Plus does not include ESPN, ESPN2 and other ESPN channels).
ESPN+ is accessible via the ESPN App on most devices, including Amazon Fire, Apple, Android, Chromecast, PlayStation, Roku, Xbox and more.
How much does ESPN Plus cost?
$6.99 a month, or $69.99 a year. The subscription doesn’t include access to certain pay-per-view events, such as UFC 276: Adesanya vs. Cannonier. Those events cost extra, but are still exclusive to the ESPN+ service.
If you’re looking to save on a lot of streaming content, the Disney Plus Bundle includes subscriptions to Hulu ($5.99), ESPN Plus ($6.99) and Disney Plus ($7.99) for just $13.99/month. You’re getting one of the services for free when you subscribe to all three.
