How do soccer highlights impact your viewing experience?

Soccer highlights are, for better or for worse, part of the fan’s viewing experience. This is particularly true in the United States for two reasons.

For one, soccer highlights allow fans to catch up on games they missed due to other commitments. Whether that be work, sleep or anything in between, the European kickoff times do not necessarily align with American standards. Highlights allow fans to commit to other things. Concurrently, they stay relatively in the know when it comes to the world of soccer.

Secondly, soccer fans across the globe follow multiple players, teams, leagues or countries. Few fans say they only watch one club’s games. This is not to say they are not a fan of a certain club. Instead, that one club may only play twice a week. Meanwhile, there are games every day in some competition that overlap in kickoff times. Soccer highlights make it easy to see the biggest moments from across the sport while still focusing on one game as it happens.

On-demand games are an option, depending on the league, as not every streaming service carries replays. However, like live games, these are lengthy affairs. Few fans have the time to truly watch all games in a league, even on demand.

Therefore, soccer highlights play a role in the viewing experience in some way, shape or form. The most common spot for highlights is social media. YouTube has full game highlights. Twitter has highlights immediately after something happens. TikTok has compilations of soccer highlights for certain players or clubs.

Yet, these soccer highlights can be a hinderance to the viewing experience. People develop predispositions based off small clips instead of getting the game as a whole.
