The CONCACAF Gold Cup is just around the corner and we will discuss the Gold Cup live stream options available for those of you who can't make the games in person. Keep in mind that there isn't a legal free live stream option available. In one form or another, you will have to pay to watch the games live.
Available Gold Cup Live Stream Options
There are multiple streaming options for the Gold Cup available, from bookmakers to TV channels. You can read all about them below.
Gold Cup Live Stream via TV Networks
This type of streaming requires you to have a cable subscription to a service that offers channels that will broadcast the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup once it starts. It mainly depends on your location, but if you are in the US then the TV networks included in the cable subscription should include FOX Sports Channels.
Online Gold Cup Live Stream Services
Another option is to subscribe to an online streaming service. The options here are numerous but the trick will be to find the one that offers channels, which will be streaming the CONCACAF Gold Cup, like FS1 or FS2. Many different online streaming platforms offer this channel, but you will have to check out which package you need to subscribe to that offers the important channels. Here is a little more about the most popular online sports streaming platforms in the US.
Hulu + Live TV
Hulu is a good option for you if you aren't a hardcore sports fan. It doesn’t have any sports add-on packages and it offers access to the basic channels, like ESPN, FOX, CBS, etc. Unfortunately, you won't have access to channels like the MLB Network, NFL Red Zone, NBA TV, etc.
FuboTV will give customers access to many soccer channels, but not that many local networks. They also have plenty of add-ons and their Ultra + International Sports Plus plan offers access to FS1 and FS2. The add-on will give you access to seven more channels, including FOX Soccer Plus. You will get all that for around $91 a month.
Sling will get you access to limited DVR time, over thirty sports channels and you can customize your lineups. The Sling Orange + Blue package is the most efficient if you want coverage for all Gold Cup matches, and Sling’s Sports Extra package (add-on) will grant you access to twenty-four more sports channels. You will get all that for about $60 per month.
YouTubeTV is quite popular because of their unlimited DVR time, but they don't offer access to NFL, or NHL events. Lucky for us, we are here for soccer, and for $64.99 per month, you can get over twenty sports channels and cool options, like the score-hiding option.
AT&T TV isn't the best option out of the ones we recommended because to get more than ESPN 1 & 2, FS1, and NBC Sports Network (basic plan for $65 per month), you will have to get the UNLIMITED plan to add seven college sports channels and three more sports channels.
Gold Cup Live Stream via Bookmaker Platforms
Another option, which many customers consider a free live stream option because technically you don't pay anything extra to use it is watching the Gold Cup via bookmaker's live streaming betting features. Not all bookies offer this betting feature, so you will have to see if yours does before signing up.
After choosing a bookmaker that provides this option, you have to register and make a deposit into your account. Some bookmakers require you to place the bet on the match you watch to watch beforehand, but that isn't common practice for all sports.
The feature won't allow you to watch the Gold Cup live stream on full screen as a way of prompting you to place a live bet on the match, so you always have access to the in-play odds. There will also be a certain delay, so customers don't abuse the stream. Technically you don't pay anything extra to use the feature, but you will have to make a deposit into your account and sometimes place a wager, so you won't be considered inactive.
Here are the most popular bookmaker platforms in the US, which offer the feature:
FanDuel is available in multiple states around the country and they offer customers a wide range of betting features and options. Their welcome offer includes a risk-free wager of up to $1,000 and you can also benefit from other promotions as an existing customer.
DraftKings provides the most extensive range of betting options for their sports and an exciting deposit bonus of up to $1,050. They have available various features, including betting pools and an easy-to-find Help page that explains a lot to new customers.
Caesars Sports is one of the most popular brands and they operate an online Sportsbook in many US states. They offer a user-friendly mobile and online platform with access to multiple bonuses and betting features. New customers will receive a risk-free bet with the Caesars Sports bonus code.
