This guide will show you how to install the Centry Sports Kodi addon.
The steps outlined in this tutorial will work on all devices and platforms compatible with Kodi, including Amazon FireStick, NVIDIA Shield, Android smartphones, Windows and MacOSX computers, and many more.
What is Centry Sports Kodi Addon?
Centry Sports is a sports addon for Kodi. The addon offers an avenue to watch live sports events.
Centry Sports addon is hosted in the Centry Repository.
On Centry Sports Kodi addon, you can stream live sporting events. If you missed out on a soccer, basketball, or ice hockey event, the addon offers you the chance to catch a replay. It is completely free to use—you don’t even need an account.
Centry Sports does not host any content. Instead, it pulls them from a number of websites it lists.
Centry Sports is now part of our list of Best Addons for Kodi.
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 to 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.
Is Centry Sports Safe and Legal?
Centry Sports lets its users stream lots of sports content free of charge. While that is great for users, it presents an issue—apps and addons offering free content tend to be in a legal grey area. This is especially true when what they provide is pulled from other sources.
That being the case, you may wonder whether installing and using Centry Sports on your Kodi app is safe and legal.
I ran the addon through an online antivirus to check if it was safe. The website did not flag it as malicious or unsafe to use. This means that you are not installing malware. Check the screenshot below to confirm the result of the scan.
However, I could not verify the legality of Centry Sports. FireStickTricks.com cannot confirm whether or not it is legal.
Some of the content you watch may be copyrighted material that should not legally be available on the service. Streaming such content may get you into some legal trouble with your ISP or government agencies.
Therefore, we recommend using a Kodi VPN with such addons to avoid legal trouble.
How to Install Centry Sports on Kodi
Let’s get to business and install Centry Sports on the Kodi media player. You can do this on any device compatible with Kodi, such as the Amazon FireStick and other Fire TV devices. For this guide, I will be using a Windows PC.
It is not a very complex process—follow the instructions below, and you will have it sorted in no time. To simplify things even further, I curated the steps into three parts.
Here they are:

The page contains some unverified services, and we are not certain whether they hold legal licenses to distribute the content.

Part 1: Enable Unknown Sources
As I have previously mentioned, Centry Sports is a third-party addon. This means that it comes from an external source or repository. Therefore, you cannot install it from the official repository like other third-party addons.
You must enable the “Unknown sources” setting to install third-party addons.
1. Launch Kodi and click the Settings gear icon at the top-left corner of the home screen.
2. Select System from the menu options.
3. Hover over Add-ons on the left-hand side of the screen and navigate to the right portion. Click Unknown sources to toggle on the setting.
4. Click Yes when a pop-up warning appears.
Part 2: Install the Centry Repository
At this stage, you will install Centry Repository, the external source that contains the Centry Sports addon.
1. Go back to the Settings page and select File manager this time.
2. Select Add source. To do this on a computer, double-click the option.
3. Click <None> on the dialog box that displays on the screen.
4. Type in the repository’s download link: https://centry7.github.io and click OK. Make sure that there are no errors in the URL or Kodi before you confirm.
Note: FireStickTricks.com is not associated with the developers of the Centry Repository or those who host this URL. The URL leads to the original source of the repository.
5. Select the text field tagged Enter a name for this media source. Type in Centry or any other word that you can easily remember. Click OK when done.
6. Click OK again in the Add file source window.
7. Go back to the Settings screen once more. Click Add-ons.
8. Select Install from zip file.
9. Select Centry. If you used another term as the source name, select that instead.
10. Click the file repository.centry-x.x.x.zip. Wait for a couple of moments for the repository to install. When it is done, you will receive a notification.
Stay on the same screen for the next steps.
Part 3: Install Centry Sports
This is the last stage in the process and the point where you will install the addon on your Kodi media player.
1. Select Install from repository.
2. Select Centry from the list of repositories. Click Video add-ons.
3. Click Centry Sports.
4. On the addon’s dashboard, select Install at the bottom right corner of the screen.
5. Wait a few moments while the addon downloads and installs in your Kodi. A notification badge will appear when the process is complete.
Congratulations! You have installed the Centry Sports addon on your Kodi-compatible device.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.
How to Use Centry Sports Kodi Addon
Now that we have the hard work out of the way, you can enjoy streaming sports content on the Centry Sports addon. But, first, let’s take a quick look at the addon and how you can use it.
To access the Centry Sports addon after installing it, click on Add-ons on the Kodi home screen.
Hover over Video Add-ons and move to the right-hand portion of the screen. Select Centry Sports among the options.
Here is what the home screen looks like:
It is pretty simple and divides the addon’s content into two folders:
- Live Sports
Inside the Live Sports folder, you will find the websites where the addon scrapes its content. Clicking on any of them will bring up all the available TV channels you can watch live events on. As you can see below, there is more to Centry Sports Kodi addon than just sports. Other TV channels offer content in other areas like news, cartoons, and documentaries.
In the Sports section, on the other hand, you will find three categories dedicated to soccer, basketball, and ice hockey. This section provides video-on-demand content rather than live sports, and there are several listed already-played events. You can click on any to begin streaming.
Unfortunately, I found that many of the listed content did not play in either of the major categories. I got a playback error notification several times. Centry Sports is not the most reliable sports addon right now. You will find better alternatives on our best Kodi sports addons list.
In this tutorial, I showed you how to install the Centry Sports Kodi addon on your device. I hope you found the instructions easy to follow. Centry Sports is safe and completely free. However, as mentioned earlier, it is not very reliable. This may have to do with it being a relatively new Kodi addon. Hopefully, it will produce more streaming links that work in the future.
