Amazon Prime Video is moving deeper into sports after struck a deal with Seattle Sounders to stream the team’s regionally televised Major League Soccer games. There’s a catch though: along with a Prime membership, you’ll need to be in Washington state to watch them. The deal runs through the end of the 2020 MLS season, and it gets underway with the game against LA Galaxy on August 26th.

It’s the first time that Amazon has signed such a deal with an individual soccer team, though it does stream some English Premier League games in the UK. The Sounders previously had a regional broadcast deal with YouTube TV.

The Sounders are one of the league’s best-known teams, and they should attract at least some eyeballs to Prime Video from fans in the Evergreen State. Streaming services are focusing a bit more attention on live sports these days, with the likes of Peacock and CBS All Access playing host to high-profile soccer events and games.
