NCAA College football Kodi

College football is huge in the US, with National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) matches set to kick off on August 26th. However, one of the main issues in watching these fixtures is that they’re spread across multiple different networks, each of which has its own streaming service.

That’s where Kodi comes in. With the right add-ons, football fans can live stream many of the 2023 NCAA matches in one place rather than hopping between several platforms. Better still, it’s possible to customize this software to look however you like, search for subtitles, or sync your watch history automatically.

Today, we’ll reveal which addons are best for watching NCAA games, and how to spot an unofficial sports addon. Kodi should only be used for content to which you have legal rights since neither the Kodi Foundation nor Comparitech recommends the use of Kodi for piracy.

Always use a VPN with Kodi

Did you know that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) can see which sites you visit and how long you spend on each? It can also analyze customer traffic to tell if they’re streaming, and unfortunately, many ISPs intentionally limit the speeds of anyone who watches a lot of TV.

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) prevent this by encrypting your internet traffic. In short, this keeps your activities hidden from anyone who might be monitoring the network. Further, since you can choose which location to connect to, it’s possible to make it seem like you’re browsing the web from another country.

We recommend Kodi users try out NordVPN. It boasts top-tier speeds, an impressive array of security and privacy tools, and incredible streaming abilities. What’s more, NordVPN works with almost any device you can think of and includes a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can try it risk-free.


NordVPN is offering a fully-featured risk-free 30-day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use the VPN rated #1 for Kodi with no restrictions for a month.

There are no hidden termsjust contact support within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.

How to watch NCAA on Kodi: legitimate addons


SlyGuy ESPN addon

The ESPN addon for Kodi is exactly what you’d expect: a way to access live streams from ESPN, ESPNU, and ESPN+. Now, before you can watch anything, you’ll have to login with either your cable provider details or a valid ESPN+ account (currently $9.99 USD per month).

You’ll find this addon included in the SlyGuy repository.

Sling TV

Sling Kodi addon 2021

Sling is probably the best way to stream NCAA games via Kodi without cable. It carries all of the ESPN channels you’ll need, as well as FS1, FS2, Pac-12, SEC Network, Big Ten, and ACC Network. All that’s missing are ABC and CBS Sports.

The only downside is that to get access to all of these, it’s a little pricey. You’ll need the Orange & Blue plan, which is $50 USD per month, and the Sports Extra addon, a further $11 per month.

You can download the Sling Kodi addon straight from the developer’s GitHub.

FOX Sports

Fox Sports

This addon makes it easy to stream FS1 and FS2 directly from within Kodi. Not only that, but it offers a quality selection menu, giving users the option to watch at lower resolutions, which can be handy if your connection is pretty slow. In contrast, most addons simply won’t load content on a sluggish connection.

Users have to log into the Fox Sports website with their cable provider details, then link their login to Kodi before they can start streaming. If you have an existing fuboTV, YouTube TV, or Hulu account, you can sign in with these instead. This sounds a lot more complicated than it actually is, but don’t worry: the addon walks you through this process, and it only takes a minute.

FOX Sports is currently available from the SlyGuy repository.

Watch out for piracy add-ons

You’ve likely noticed that all of the addons above have one thing in common: they all ask you to login before letting you stream. That’s because these addons get their content from official sources and haven’t set out to provide unrestricted access to copyrighted material.

Unfortunately, not all developers are as ethical. Plenty of addons are designed to let you watch every sports channel for free. Aside from being illegal, these are frequently filled with dead links and often get abandoned without warning. Additionally, because they’re often hosted by repos that nobody has ever heard of on obscure websites, it’s much more likely you’ll inadvertently install a version that’s packaged with malware.

NCAA football on Kodi: FAQs answered

Which NCAA games can't I watch on Kodi?

Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there’s no official Kodi addon that’ll let you stream ABC or CBS Sports Network. This prevents football fans from watching certain NCAA matches but rest assured, the vast majority can be streamed live. In fact, you can even stream NFL matches, so there’s no shortage of football for Kodi users.

Can I use Kodi on my Firestick?

Kodi supports just about every device out there, from Amazon Firesticks to Apple TVs to Raspberry Pis. Naturally, there are versions for PC, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS as well. You can even use a workaround to get this software running on a Roku or Chromecast, so there really aren’t many limits on where or how you can use Kodi.
