Soccer Night in America (also known as MLS Saturday/MLS on Fox Soccer) was a weekly presentation of Major League Soccer games on FOX Soccer that began in 2003. In 2007, MLS Saturday started showing a 30 minute pregame and a 30 minute postgame show for each game. From 2005 to 2011, FOX Soccer showed 25 to 30 live games each season, plus 2 to 3 playoff games.

In 2011, MLS on Fox Soccer was rebranded as Soccer Night in America, with its production revamped to provide a viewing experience similar to NFL on Fox.[1] However, Fox was outbid by NBC Sports Network for its MLS package for the 2012-2014 seasons.[2]

However, Soccer Night in America will return in the 2015 season, as part of a new deal between Fox and ESPN. With games on Fox Sports 1, airing from 7-9pm ET.
