Serie A

 

The Serie A 2020-21 season will start on September 19, giving Italy's best soccer teams a chance to vie for the Coppa Campioni d'Italia trophy. ESPN will stream the most of the season's games live through the ESPN+ streaming service. The season will run from September 19, 2020 to May 23, 2021.  

Serie A is set up as a round-robin style tournament with a total of 20 teams competing. During the course of the season, each participating team will play each of the other clubs twice. Winning teams get three points, and if there is a tie both teams get one point. The top four teams at the end of the Serie A season qualify for the UEFA Champions League, which is Europe's premier club soccer tournament.

The 2019-20 Serie A season ended on August 2, 2020, following a three-month pause in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Juventus took the top prize, earning the team's 36th Serie A title. Internazionale, Atalanta, and Lazio rounded out the remainder of the top four spots. If Juventus comes away with the trophy again this season, the win will mark the team's tenth straight Serie A victory in a row

In addition to Serie A, ESPN+ is also the exclusive US streaming home of the Bundesliga 2020-21 season. The Bundesliga is Germany's top soccer league. You can find more details about how to watch the Bundesliga here.

How to watch the Serie A 2020-21 season on ESPN+

ESPN will broadcast the majority of the 2020-21 Serie A season exclusively through the ESPN+ streaming service in the US. A limited selection of games will also be shown on ESPN cable channels, like ESPN, ESPN 2, and ESPN Deportes. The new season begins on September 19 at 11:50 a.m. ET with a match between Fiorentina and Torino. You can see a full schedule for the season here.

ESPN+ is available for $5.99 a month or $49.99 per year if you subscribe to the annual plan. If you're looking for more streaming content outside of sports, ESPN+ is also offered as part of a discounted bundle with Hulu and Disney Plus. The package costs $12.99 per month, which is about $6 less than you'd pay if you signed up for each service separately. 

You can watch ESPN+ through the ESPN app on a variety of connected-devices, including smartphones, media players, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android, Chromecast, PS4, Xbox One, Roku, Samsung smart TVs, and more.
