Major League Soccer announced on Friday that at least 22 matches this season will be streamed on Facebook Live as part of an agreement with Spanish television network Univision Deportes.

Univision holds the league’s rights to hosting Spanish broadcasts through the MLS season, while ESPN and Fox Sports have shared the English-language rights since 2015.

This season, Univision Deportes is slated to have 24 matches broadcasted across its networks, including last weekend’s match between FC Dallas and the LA Galaxy.

Facebook Live has become a fixture for several other competitions over the past year, particularly within the ranks of CONCACAF, which has streamed tournaments at both the club and international levels on the social media platform.
