Los Angeles FC vs Seattle Sounders: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch crunch MLS clash

MLS 2023 runners-up, Los Angeles FC kick off their new campaign as they host Seattle Sounders with the latter vying for revenge after being dumped out in the playoffs by the home side last season.
