Sky Sports will exclusively broadcast live action from Major League Soccer this year for the first of a four-year deal and the first weekend of the season will allow UK fans to enjoy four hours of non-stop MLS action on Sunday night.
Both games should be entertaining as the biggest-ever MLS season is set to get underway in fine style this weekend.
The first game between Orlando and New York City will be made even better by the fact that a huge 60,000 sell-out crowd is expected to be in attendance at the Citrus Bowl in Florida for the Lions’ first-ever MLS game.
The two expansion clubs are rivals because of the fact that they are both entering the league in 2015 and Sunday night’s game is one you don’t want to miss.

The Red Bulls came from behind to win 2-1 back in October though New York have seen so much change this offseason, including the loss of Thierry Henry, while Sporting KC have been moved to the Western Conference ahead of the 2015 campaign.
Both clubs have English strikers who were the two highest goalscorers in MLS last year as Bradley Wright-Phillips and Dom Dwyer set the league alight.
Both Dwyer and Wright-Phillips will want to hit the ground running in Sunday’s game and that is another one you don’t want to miss.
