Serie A fans in the United States will be able to view the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa in the same place as they view league games, as it was announced today that ESPN has acquired the rights to the competitions.

ESPN+ has been adding a lot of content aimed at the soccer/football fan in America, with the addition of the Eredivisie and the Chinese Super League this season to go with Serie A, MLS, and USL. They also broadcast one or two Liga MX matches via ESPN Deportes every weekend.

Most US fans of Milan probably already subscribe to ESPN+ already, so this isn’t anything ground breaking, but it will be nice to be able to see it, rather then depend on Gol or beIN Sports to cover the match, as those two providers are not available in most US homes, and the streaming options are often limited or poorly delivered.

On to the links.
