The UEFA Champions League 2017/2018 already kicked off with the qualifying rounds, playoffs, and group stage matches having been played in 2017. All football sports aficionados are now eagerly waiting for the rounds of 16 matches that will determine who is strong enough to play in the quarters, semis, and finals. As a staunch soccer fan, I understand what it means for my favorite team to play in the champions league.
How do I watch live Football Champions League when my cable TV subscription doesn’t offer sports channels? Well, Champions League Kodi Addons is the answer! You can watch UEFA Champions League online on your PC / Fire TV / FireStick. Kodi is a streaming platform that enables you to watch TV Shows, movies, sports, and music. I normally call it a hub of digital entertainment, because of the versatility of what you can watch, stream, and download from the platform. UEFA Champions league are among the sports events that you can live stream with Kodi.
Kodi is a free, open-source software that can be supported by numerous operating systems like Android, Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. In order to watch the UEFA Champions League matches through this platform, you will need sports Kodi add-ons that allows you to stream live UCL games. Getting the working sports add-ons has been the biggest obstacle for most soccer fans. In this guide, I will not only provide you with these add-ons but also help you install them and get your Kodi platform ready and running!
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.
NOTE: You can install UCL Kodi add-ons on Amazon Fire TV Stick, Chromecast, Raspberry Pi, Android TV Box, Mac, PC, or Nvidia. This guide covers the instructions on how to install such add-ons on these devices.

If you are located in any state of the USA, then you are lucky to have the easiest way of watching UCL matches live on Kodi. All you need is a Kodi device, subscription in any American cable provider, and the Fox Sports Go Kodi add-on. The following steps will help you install Fox Sports Go on your Kodi app:
Step 1: Launch your Kodi app and navigate to the “Add-ons” section. In the top left corner, select the “Package Installer Icon.” In case you are unable to locate it, hover the cursor over the icons on the top-left corner
Step 2: Next, click on “Install from Repository”
Step 3: Click “Kodi Add-on Repository” where you can find all the official Addons added by Kodi Team.
Step 4: Open “Video Add-ons”.
Step 5: Scroll down until you can locate “Fox Sports Go” Add-on.
Step 6: Click “Install.”
TIP: The installation process will take some time, wait until you see the “Fox Sports Go” Add-on Enabled notification. Alternatively, you can consider downloading the official Fox Sports Go add-on from this link and configure it by clicking on “Install from Zip File.”
Step 7: Navigate back to the home screen and select “Add-ons” again. Click “Video Add-ons.”
Step 8: All the video add-ons that you have installed will appear here, including the “Fox Sports Go” add-on.
Step 9: After launching the Fox Sports Go add-on for the first time, you will be offered with an activation code that you will be required to enter at “foxsportsgo.com/activate.”
Step 10: After entering the activation code, you will need to sign in with your cable TV provider (only United States cable TV providers). However, if you are outside the US, you can still enjoy watching UCL matches through Kodi with the help of Kodi VPN. Once activated, click OK.
Unblocking Best Champions League Kodi Addons Outside the USA
As aforementioned, this add-on will only work within the United States of America. Though, you can still enjoy streaming UCL matches among other sports like basketball, soccer, rugby, and baseball outside this zone. All you need is to get a good Virtual Private Network (VPN). VPN helps you geo-spoof your current online location and, therefore, unblock geo-blocked Kodi add-ons like Fox Sports Go. Moreover, the VPNs will help you subscribe to USA cable TV services like DirecTV and Verizon.
However, not all VPNs offer for location-specific servers. There are many free VPNs that promise you such features like server location change and USA IP addresses. However, most of them come with major drawbacks like shifting IP addresses, unending advertisements, and slowed network connections. Hence, you will need a dependable VPN like the ExpressVPN. I mainly recommend this VPN due to the many benefits that accrue from its use.
With ExpressVPN, you can get an IP address for any country including the USA. Thus, all you need will be subscribing to a cheap US-based cable TV and install the Fox Sports Go add-on as if you are in the US. We have already gone through these steps above. Moreover, you will enjoy ultimate privacy, since it encrypts all your browsing habits hence remaining anonymous. Setting up ExpressVPN is pretty easy whether you are using PC, iOS, Amazon Fire Stick, Android, or Mac. Thanks to the user-friendly application!
Streaming Live UCL Matches on Kodi with the ESPN 3 Add-on
ESPN is one of the world renown sports channels. With it, you can enjoy live streams of MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA, NCAA, college football, and Basketball. If you are a sports fan, you may consider setting up this Kodi add-on on your PC or Fire TV/ Stick. The steps are similar to those of installing the Fox Sports Go add-on. In case you are outside the US, you will need to use VPN to get an American IP address to unlock geo-blocked content. Moreover, to watch premium content, you will be asked to authenticate with a cable TV provider.
Streaming Live UCL Matches on Kodi with the Viaplay Add-on
Viaplay is a premium Scandinavian streaming service. It is available in all the Nordic countries including Finland, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. You can set up Viaplay Kodi add-on on any Kodi device including Amazon Fire TV Stick. In order to use it outside the Nordic countries like the US and Canada, you will need a VPN that can provide you with a Nordic IP address.
Setting up the Viaplay add-on is pretty easy. All the steps are similar to those of the Fox Sports Go add-on. You can also download the add-on from the official Kodi website and install it on your Kodi app by clicking on “Install from Zip File.” Once installed, you will be prompted to activate it. You will get all the necessary activation details by subscribing to Viaplay from their official website.
Streaming Live UCL Matches on Kodi with the PlayStation Vue Add-on
The PS Vue Kodi add-on is much like the Fox Sports Go add-on. PlayStation Vue is a TV service that allows you to stream sports, movies, and watch live TV. Unlike Fox Sports Go, PS Vue doesn’t require cable TV subscription. Eracknaphobia is behind the development of this add-on. The same developer who created the Livestream, NHL.tv, NBC Sports, and MLB.tv add-ons.
Installing PS Vue in your Kodi device is much like the installation of Fox Sports Go add-on. However, instead of getting an activation code, you will be prompted to enter a username and password. You will need a valid PlayStation Vue subscription in order to get these login details and successfully sign into the add-on after installation. In case you are in a geo-blocked zone, a VPN will help you get the right IP address for unlocking the service.
Streaming Live Champions League 2018 on Kodi: Bottom Line!
Streaming live UCL matches and other sports has never been easy. With Kodi, you can watch almost any match around the world. Moreover, the YouTube Kodi add-on allows you to live stream matches which are live on YouTube despite your location. With the best Kodi VPN, you will enjoy watching geo-blocked content despite your location and get access to American cable TV services!
