It’s not just fantastically good soccer, it’s opposition research for our first MLS season.

We are mere hours away from one of the best and most anticipated matchups of the 2015-16 MLS season. Here’s how to catch the action.

When visitors Seattle Sounders take the pitch against hometown darlings Toronto FC, the eyes of the soccer-loving world will be on BMO Field.

If you managed to score a coveted ticket to watch the finals in person...stop rubbing it in! If you’re like the rest of us stateside peasants and will be watching the match from home this evening, here’s how to tune in.

FOX is the Word

Fox will dominate coverage of the game tonight with four ways to watch:

  1. Pre-game show: 6:30pm CT, including an exclusive interview with USMNT head coach Bruce Arena
  2. Broadcast coverage: 7pm on FOX
  3. Streaming: Tune in on the FOX Sports Go app or at FOXSoccer2Go.com
  4. Virtual Reality: Welcome to 2016, people. If an insanely good match-up isn’t enough for you, try watching it in virtual reality with the FOX Sports VR app.

En Español

UniMás and Univision Deportes Network will carry coverage in Spanish tonight, following the same schedule as FOX. Their coverage will also be available via the Univision Deportes app or UnivisionDeportes.com.

No Picture, No Problem

Are all those flashy moving pictures too distracting? Would you rather just listen to the beautiful game than watch it? Well, do we have great news for you.

SiriusXM coverage will begin on channel 85 at 6pm CT and run until 10pm CT.

It’s “Futbol,” You Yanks!

Tuning in from overseas? MLS has you covered. With a worldwide network of broadcast partners, you can catch the game from virtually anywhere.

Finally, if you managed to score two coveted tickets for the match and still need someone to join you, well, I’ll just say that at least a few of our writers would charter a plane to make that happen.
