7 ways to get your football fix this summer: MLS, Women’s World Cup…
As the 2022-23 football season now comes to its conclusion, football fans will be desperately searching to get their football fix from somewhere.
Of course, we still have the European and domestic cup finals to come, but after that, we will be left in the wilderness. We will all be left scratching our heads and wondering how we can fill the footballing void.
But we’ve thought of seven ways that you will be able to get your footballing fix this summer while the Premier League takes a few months off.
Watch some MLS action
European football might take a break over the summer, but the same can’t be said for those stateside. The MLS is an ever-expanding league and we are already well into the 2023 season.
You can catch the likes of Lorenzo Insigne and Javier Hernandez in action as well as the upcoming stars that the United States have to offer. If you are watching live from the UK, you’ll find yourself getting up in the early hours of the morning, but the MLS is well worth a watch this summer.
Plus, the press conferences can be absolutely box office.

Keeping up with the rumour mill
Silly season has already begun and the transfer window isn’t even open yet. We can’t help but be sucked into the transfer gossip though and this summer could be huge for transfer dealings.
With loads of high-profile players out of contract, it promises to be an exciting window. Where next for Lionel Messi? Can Manchester United land Neymar? How many millions will Chelsea splurge this time? It should be an exciting few months.
Watching football documentaries
There are some brilliant football documentaries out right now and even more set to release in the following months. We can’t get enough of some of these.

Stream the pre-season action
As soon as July rolls around, European football sides will be jetting off around the globe to take part in pre-season tournaments. With most of the games being streamed, you won’t have to wait long until your favourite players are back in action.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Newcastle are all heading to the States. Whereas the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham will be playing in Asia.
There are plenty of fun matchups to look forward to in the pre-season calendar. Wrexham for example are heading stateside to take on some of the Premier League big boys.
Watch the Women’s World Cup
After the success of the 2022 Women’s Euros, we can’t wait to get swept along in the World Cup fever this summer. The tournament is being hosted in Australia & New Zealand and kicks off in July.
The Lionesses put on a real show during the last major tournament and the 2023 World Cup could be one of the most entertaining yet.
