With champion Real Madrid defending their record-setting win streak this year, fans won’t want to miss any of the action.

Below, we’ve laid out all the ways that soccer fans in the U.S. can watch the Champions League, including some ways to do so for free. Read on to discover how to watch the Champions League so you can catch all the exciting soccer action from wherever you are.

Following the investigation into past misconduct by former U.S. men’s national team coach Gregg Berhalter, he remains a candidate to coach the team, U.S Soccer announced on Monday. The federation made the announcement while also declaring the conclusion of the investigation by Alston & Bird, who were also asked to expand the investigation into potential inappropriate behavior toward U.S. Soccer officials and staff in relation to former USMNT midfielder Claudio Reyna, the father of Borussia Dortmund and USMNT midfielder Gio Reyna.
Berhalter’s contract expired at the end of December, and assistant manager Anthony Hudson has been serving as an interim manager since then. The initial investigation was due to a domestic incident between Berhalter and his now wife Rosiland Berhalter in 1992.
“Given the investigators’ conclusion that there is no legal impediment to employing him, Gregg Berhalter remains a candidate to serve as head coach of the men’s national team,” a statement released by U.S. Soccer said.
This doesn’t mean that Berhalter will be the coach of the national team as the search to hire a new sporting director is still ongoing. But it does mean that Berhalter can remain a candidate.
According to the statement from U.S. Soccer, the report does also identify a need to revisit policies concerning appropriate parental communication with staff at the national team level. That finding comes after Claudio and Danielle Reyna, Gio Reyna’s parents brought the domestic incident to U.S Soccer’s attention after their son Gio was struggling for playing time at the World Cup. The conduct around those communications was also looked at and showed that Claudio Reyna had a pattern of reaching out to U.S. Soccer officials over a six-year period about the treatment of his children.
During the World Cup, both parents suggested that they had damaging information about Berhalter which was in reference to the domestic incident, but apparently things began before that. No criminal laws were violated during their communications nor were any U.S. Soccer or SafeSport rules violated, but, according to the investigation, Reyna may have violated FIFA regulations due to FIFA code applying to all officials and players. During his time as sporting director of New York City FC and Austin FC, Claudio Reyna would have been considered an official.
“Information obtained during the investigation suggests that Mr. Reyna participated in conduct in which he attempted to influence U.S. Soccer officials’ decisions related to his children,” the report said. “We were informed that Mr. Reyna voiced periodic complaints to U.S. Soccer officials and staff beginning in or around 2016 through the 2022 World Cup. Information obtained during the investigation suggests that Mr. Reyna may have used his status as arguably one of the best soccer players in the United States, while also serving in a position that constitutes an ‘official,’ as that term is defined under the FIFA Code of Ethics, to attempt to influence decisions by U.S. Soccer officials and staff concerning his children.”
One of those contacts in 2018 saw Reyna request a male ref for a game that Gio Reyna was involved in, according to the findings. In an email, he stated that the field, the female ref and more were embarrassing and that male refs need to oversee matches like that one. Former U.S. Soccer sporting director Earnie Stewart informed the investigation team that Reyna began making complaints to him in November of 2019 during the FIFA U-17 World Cup.
Reyna has already stepped down as sporting director at Austin FC.
BIRMINGHAM – UAB Women’s Soccer head coach Lisa Mann has announced that Chloe Kane will be the Blazers’ assistant coach.
“We are delighted to add Chloe to our coaching staff,” said Mann. “Chloe came very highly recommended by coaches we have great respect for. We have no doubt she will bring qualities that help elevate our program and players to higher levels, as we transition into the AAC”.

Throughout her time at Smith, she trained both field players and goalkeepers, assisted with recruiting and was involved in administrative aspects of the program.

A native of Morecambe, England, Kane is a current member of the United Soccer Coaches 30 Under 30 program. She currently holds her D-License from the United States Soccer Federation (USSF).
A 2021 graduate of Holy Cross College in Notre Dame, Ind, she played goalkeeper for the Saints and earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration.

An independent report found that Claudio Reyna and Danielle Egan, both former players, revealed an abuse allegation against the U.S. men’s coach in response to their son’s lack of playing time.
An independent investigation commissioned by U.S. Soccer has found that the family of star men’s national team member Gio Reyna tried to dissuade the federation from renewing U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter in the job.
The report, published Monday, examines the bizarre fallout from Berhalter’s decision to bench Gio Reyna, one of the team’s up and coming talents, at the 2022 World Cup. Reyna’s parents—the former U.S. men’s captain Claudio Reyna and former women’s national team player Danielle Egan—were upset about Gio’s lack of playing time in Qatar and resented Berhalter’s revelation after the tournament that the problem had been Gio’s attitude.

NEAR WEST SIDE — The Chicago Housing Authority has finalized its deal to lease public housing land to the Chicago Fire pro soccer team despite pushback from concerned neighbors and housing activists.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office announced Monday that the Housing Authority and Chicago Fire soccer team signed a lease for at least the next four decades after the federal government signed off on the deal earlier this month. The signing was not on the mayor’s public schedule or part of a public event.
The pro soccer team plans to build a new training facility on the site. Before the agreement, the land had long been set aside for new housing, much of it for low-income residents.
Officials said the deal is expected to bring the Chicago Housing Authority at least $40 million over the next 40 years, which the agency has pledged to invest in housing. But the fine print of the lease shows that the total figure is not set in stone, since future rent payments could vary depending on inflation and renegotiations. The lease also includes provisions that could extend the deal another 20 years, to six decades in all.
“The Chicago Fire, one of our city’s greatest sports teams, deserves to have a high-quality training facility that not only meets their needs but fosters the growth of talented athletes,” Lightfoot said in a news release. “This potential new facility will both fulfill this need and provide the surrounding West Side community with job opportunities, recreational activities, and community gathering spaces. Additionally, the millions of dollars in rental income generated by this project will support the CHA’s efforts to rehabilitate and build affordable housing in the surrounding areas.”
The 23.3 acres of land is bounded by Roosevelt Road, Ashland Avenue, 14th Street and Loomis Street on the city’s Near West Side. The site was once part of the Addams, Brooks, Loomis and Abbott developments — together known as the ABLA Homes. As the Housing Authority demolished hundreds of units at ABLA in the early 2000s, it vowed to replace them with more than 2,400 units of improved affordable and mixed-use housing, including for displaced residents. But so far the agency is hundreds of units short of those promises.
Documents show HUD gave the Housing Authority approval in a March 6 letter. The letter mostly repeated the mayor’s and Housing Authority’s arguments that the deal would generate money that could be used for housing and other community improvements.
The Fire has released plans to build a 53,000 square-foot, two-story performance center, two-and-a-half hybrid grass pitches and three synthetic turf pitches, according to the city’s news release.
The team has also discussed starting a youth mentorship program and an after-school soccer training academy.
“Being a part of and giving back to Chicago is at the heart of the Chicago Fire Football Club ethos, and we are excited to put down roots on the Near West Side in the Roosevelt Square community,” said Chicago Fire FC owner Joe Mansueto in the news release.
“The development of our new facility will provide a state-of-the-art training environment for our players, coaches, and sporting staff. Our facility will also serve as a community programming home to the next generation of Chicagoans, bringing our city together through the sport of soccer.”
Lightfoot, Ald. Jason Ervin (28th) and Housing Authority CEO Tracey Scott have pushed the project for more than a year, claiming it will bring in additional funds for the Housing Authority to built and improve housing and provide an economic boost to the area.
But until the Monday announcement that the deal was done, the city and HOusing Authority had kept the exact terms of the lease secret.
The lease, now posted on the Chicago Housing Authority’s website, spells out that the agency will receive $8 million in payments over the next decade, at least half of which will go toward green space, new parking and other improvements in the area near the leased land. In addition, the Fire will make rent payments that start at $750,000 a year and then vary based on inflation and future appraisals. If the Fire sells naming rights to the new facility, it can keep the proceeds.
Officials said Monday that construction on the site is expected to begin this spring.
The proposed Chicago Fire facility isn’t the only project on the Addams, Brooks, Loomis and Abbott Homes sites.
The museum will use oral histories, art, photography and more to preserve the stories to come out of public housing in Chicago, reshaping the narrative of what public housing is and informing discussion on housing policies, museum leaders have said.
It will also have 15 mixed-income apartments from a partnership with the city housing agency and developer Related Midwest.
And in January, construction began on the next phase of the Roosevelt Square development — 222 new apartments and 184 rehabbed apartments in the ABLA area. The new apartments will be in three mid-rise buildings at 1002 S. Racine Ave., 1257 W. Roosevelt Road and 1357 W. Roosevelt Road with studios to three-bedroom apartments.
This project phase of Roosevelt Square is expected to wrap by 2024.
