11 Must-See Sporting Events this Summer (and How to Stream Them)

Summer is an underrated time for live sports. The problem? Instead of your normal schedule, you’re either traveling somewhere, stuck on a vacation with non-sports fans (or worse, no cable), away from a television at a BBQ or the beach, or at the (empty) office pretending to work. Whichever one it is, you need reliable streaming options so you don’t miss a beat. We’ve got you covered…




May 29 to June 14 – Stanley Cup Finals

The returning champ Pittsburgh Penguins are facing the Predators of Nashville. Nashville have never been to the Finals before, and their fans are bonkers. Too bad they’re already down 2-0.

Game 3 will be viewable on NBCSN, and 4-7 will be on NBC. All remaining games can be streamed on the NBC Sports App or NBCSports.com.

June 3 – Champions League Final

Juventus vs Real Madrid

Gareth Bale and Ronaldo will be defending the title against Italian squad Juventus in Cardiff, Wales. The logo for the game is a big black dragon, which is pretty cool. You can catch it on June 3 on FOX at 1:45pm Eastern and stream it on Sling TVfuboTV, and FOX Sports Go.
