One thing that makes Kodi so popular is its ability to provide an easy and free way to watch live sports without needing cable subscription. This makes Kodi the ultimate solution to cutting-the-cord since you can enjoy all television content live and on-demand for free.
However, the fact that Kodi is used to stream live and on-demand sports illegally has seen a crackdown on some of the best and most popular add-ons. The developers have not, however, relented and they continue to produce new and updated add-ons. This is why you should always keep in touch to check the latest sports add-ons.
Kodi sports add-ons are varied and can be installed depending on the sports that interest you. You can find add-ons for football (soccer), NFL, Cricket, UFC, Boxing, WWE, etc. However, you should also note that live stream Kodi add-ons may sometimes not work well as those that provide on-demand content. The quality of streams varies from one add-on to another, depending on how well-maintained the add-on is.
Caution: 3dinsider doesn’t promote the use of Kodi add-ons to stream illegal content. The information provided here is only meant to be educational, and so you should take your security and privacy personally.
Stay Safe, Use a VPN
Since streaming copyrighted content may be illegal depending on your country, we advise you to use a VPN if you need to stream sports on Kodi. This especially applies if you need to use third-party add-ons as they may greatly compromise your security. You may end up receiving a DMCA notice in your mail or face legal charges. Private Internet Access is a great choice.
Best Kodi Sports Add-ons
With that said, let’s dive right in and explore the best Kodi sports add-ons for 2018. In this list, we divide the add-ons into two categories, one for the official ones and then third-party add-ons.
Best Official Sports Add-ons
These are add-ons that are entirely legal and can be installed from the official Kodi repository. You don’t need to do anything to gain access, as Kodi automatically installs the repository during software installation.
However, some of these add-ons require a subscription, and you may have to go for third-party add-on options if you need to watch live sports free of charge.
NBC Sports Live Extra
NBC is a major sports broadcaster and with this Kodi add-on you will be able to access content from NBC’s official online broadcasting sources. The quality of streams you get with NBC is super good, and you can enjoy a wide range of sports. These include Premier League action, Super Bowl, NHL, NASCAR, Olympics, and even the PGA tour. Remember that to use this add-on, you will require a subscription.
Fox Sports Go
This is another official Kodi Sports Add-on that guarantees fast and high-quality sports streams. Fox Sports Go gets its content from the official FOX’s online TV Everywhere service and relays it to your TV, Laptop or Smartphone through Kodi. Fox Sports Go Kodi add-ons gives you content from the NBA, NHL, and MLB games. You will also need a subscription to use this add-on.
This is an add-on dedicated to streaming baseball action live or on demand. This content is sourced from MLB.tv, and you can enjoy any MLB content from the huge library of MLB action. This is almost essential for any baseball fan, but you will also need to have an MLB.tv active subscription.

Best Unofficial Sports Add-ons
These are add-ons that are either illegal, or they just haven’t been added to the official Kodi repository. A lot of care should be taken before using such add-ons, and you should ensure that you always have your VPN turned on before using Kodi.

The VPN will also help you stay secure and private while using Kodi. Otherwise, you can now enjoy an unlimited world of sports streaming with Kodi.
