COMMENTARY | History will be made this coming weekend, as the Premier League makes it anticipated move to NBC.
Major League Soccer, Serie A, La Liga, Eredivisie and Bundesliga matches will also be featured on television, as will games taking place in Mexico and South America. It's somewhat of a light weekend for the ESPN3/Watch ESPN service, which only has two games from Friday to Sunday.
All times listed below are ET. Also, games airing on Premier League Extra Time and NBC Sports Live Extra were not included since not all providers carry those two services.
