Here is a list of the upcoming soccer games. Each game listed here has a link to a website with further information about the forthcoming game. You may narrow down the fixtures list below to just see matches from the league of your choice. Or, if you are looking for international games, these links will take you to the correct page: Australia vs Bangladesh, Austria vs Belarus, etc.
The dates shown next to each match indicate when that game is scheduled to take place. Some clubs have announced changes to their schedule so it's possible that some games may be played at a different date or time. ALWAYS check before you travel to a game who has been confirmed as your opponent and what time they play. Sometimes two teams from the same country will meet in a single season - this is known as a "double header".
Also keep an eye on any other sports events being held at the same time as your favorite team's match. This is particularly important for international games where many countries will be competing so make sure you don't miss anything else going on at the same time.
Finally, check out local newspapers and radio stations to see if there are any announcements about ticket sales or official announcements about scheduling changes. Often these things aren't publicized until well after the fact!
The regular season of Major League Soccer goes from late February or early March until October. Teams are geographically separated into the Eastern and Western Conferences, with an imbalanced schedule of 34 games. At the end of each season, the team with most points is crowned champion.
There are also two other major competitions held during the season: the MLS Cup playoffs and the MLS Reserve Division league. The MLS Cup playoffs begin with a four-team bracket that ends with a single championship game. The two teams who finish first and second in their conferences will then play in the final while the third place team in the East and fourth place team in the West will face off in the Wild Card Round.
The winner of this round will move on to play the conference champion with the next highest number of points. This stage is called the Conference Semifinals. The two remaining teams will then play a home-and-away series to determine which team will be crowned champion.
The MLS Reserve Division league begins at any point during the season and runs for approximately six weeks. Each team is required to have three players eligible for selection to its reserve team. These players can be no older than 23 years old and cannot have been selected by any other club in the MLS SuperDraft. A reserve team can only include five total players on its roster at any one time.

Because most nations with a league in a certain sport run at about the same time as the others, international tournaments may be organized during the off season. The IFAF World Championships are an annual event that is held between members of the International Federation of American Football (IFAF). The championships aim to determine the best teams in the world by having each country's team compete against all others. Teams can qualify for the tournament by winning their national championship or by being assigned a place by IFAF's committee based on their performance in previous seasons.
The World Bowl is another annual event held between members of the International Federation of Air Sports (IFAS). The bowl aims to determine the best aerial sports teams in the world by having each country's team compete against all others. Qualification for the tournament is similar to that of the IFAF World Championship; teams must win their national title or be granted an entry spot by the committee. In addition, some countries may be given "wild card" spots.
The Olympic Games are an annual event that is held only within certain countries. The games celebrate excellence in sport and exercise science across many disciplines including athletics, aquatics, boxing, gymnastics, judo, rowing, rugby, sailing, shooting, swimming, tennis, weightlifting, and wrestling.
