Sky Sports has won the TV rights to Major League Soccer (MLS) and will show live action from North America's premier football competition.

The pay-TV provider will televise MLS action for an initial four years, starting from March 2015 when the new season gets underway.

With Steven Gerrard joining LA Galaxy in the summer and Frank Lampard signing for New York City, Sky Sports will be the place to see the two England legends in action.

Both Thierry Henry and David Beckham have lit up the MLS in recent seasons, while Irish forward Robbie Keane was voted the MLS' most valuable player in 2014.

Sky Sports' Managing Director Barney Francis claimed that football in the US and Canada has "enormous potential for growth".

He said Sky "can’t wait" to bring this competition to viewers for the first time, and see some "great stories" unfold across the Atlantic.

"We offer an unrivalled range of sport across our seven channels and we are always looking to offer more choice," Mr Francis stated.

"After recently adding football from Holland, Italy and UEFA European qualifiers, we are delighted to now add MLS to that list."
