List of Live Soccer Games on US TV for April 6 to April 8
Soccer fans in the United States have a variety of live matches to watch during the upcoming holiday weekend. The ESPN family of networks will be showing games taking place in the United States, Spain and England over the weekend. FOX Soccer, FOX Soccer Plus and GolTV will also be handing out holiday pay (well, maybe) to their employees, as all three stations have your standard Saturday and Sunday schedules. You may want to plan on calling in sick on Friday, though, because your soccer weekend begins much earlier than normal.
