How to Watch Eleven Sports From Outside The UKLast Updated by Sarah Barnes on May 01, 2019
Eleven Sports is a global network and online streaming service that’s rapidly growing in popularity, and hosting some exclusive material for registers users.
That said, the available content can vary depending on location and registered billing address, so, if you subscribe to Eleven Sports UK and Ireland, you can’t watch content from Eleven Sports USA.
Where is Eleven Sports Available and which sporting events can I access?
Eleven Sports is now available in the UK & Ireland, the USA, Poland, Italy, Portugal, Belgium/Luxembourg, Singapore, and Taiwan.
Eleven Sports have the rights to broadcast the following leagues and tournaments divided between territories.
- Uefa Champions League
- Premier League
- La Liga, including El Classico
- Serie A
- The Chinese Super League
- LPGA golf
- US PGA Championship
- And more
Recently, Eleven Sports has ceased broadcasting Serie A in the UK and Ireland, with Premier Sports assuming the rights. Eleven Sports did advertise the inclusion of UFC events in the future; however, the deal fell through late on.
Eleven Sports and the Cross Border Portability Regulation
As of June 2017, new laws were put in place to grant consumers access to the same online content when traveling within the European Union (EU) as they would at home. This law applies to everything from Netflix to Hulu, and Eleven Sports.
The full details of how this affects content available on Eleven Sports, and other information, can be found on the Eleven Sports website.
While the cross border portability regulation benefits users within the EU, it doesn’t resolve the problem of streaming in other continents, or countries where the entire service is blocked. To address this issue, you can use the geo-spoofing capabilities of a VPN service to bypass the restrictions.

If you bought your subscription with a UK billing address and want to access content while in Japan, for example, all you have to do is connect to a server in the UK, and you can stream all your favorite games as you would do at home.
