OneSoccer Release Date, Pricing Revealed
Fans interested in watching streams of the Canadian Premier League have likely been following OneSoccer, the global streaming service that will stream all 98 Canadian Premier League games. One day ahead of the league’s inaugural match, OneSoccer has now announced both its release date and pricing structure.
OneSoccer will officially launch at 12:00PM EST this Saturday, April 27, one hour ahead of the inaugural Canadian Premier League match.
The streaming service will offer a free one-month trial to interested fans around the globe. Once the month expires, fans will be offered to subscribe for $9.99 per month, with options for a $74.99 yearly pass (which comes to $6.25 per month) or a $5.99 for a 24-hour pass.
Season ticket holders for CPL clubs will also be receiving additional discount voucher codes, with an exclusive offer to lock in an annual subscription at $49.99 for the year. It’s a plan called the “League Pass”, and adds nice value to the club’s varying membership packages.
OneSoccer will also produce live pregame previews, half-time discussion, and post-game reports. The first-ever Canadian Premier League final and every Canadian Championship game will also be covered by the streaming service. Coverage for League1Ontario and the Canadian National Team (for both men and women) will begin next year.
The coverage will extend far beyond matches, too: OneSoccer promises daily Canadian Soccer News studio broadcasts and reports from training sessions for all seven clubs.
With content produced by Spanish production giant MEDIAPRO, fans can expect some in-depth stories detailing the players, their lives, and their club. For instance, MEDIAPRO officials were at York9 FC midfielder Manny Aparicio’s house, so streamers should expect a pre-game piece on the diminutive midfielder this Saturday.
The inaugural match will also be broadcast on CBC Sports, which will cover 20 games split between television and its online services. To watch all of the CPL games both live and on-demand, however, OneSoccer is the way to go.
It’s worth noting that the press release mentions that availability of games is subject to separate licensing agreements in individual territories, implying that certain regions may strike broadcast deals with exclusive rights – much like Major League Soccer.
