Now that it’s June, our favorite summertime sports are underway, meaning it’s the perfect time to sit back, relax and stream to your heart’s content. Whether you’re excited for the NBA and NHL finals, watching the Team USA in the Women’s World Cup, a golf enthusiast or you just want to tune into some serious tennis action, Sling TV has you covered.

Stanley Cup Finals

With the Stanley Cup Finals series tied 3-3, all eyes are on the next game to see who will be the Stanley Cup Champion. Who will have the chance to hoist the cup? The Boston Bruins will face the St. Louis Blues at home, the first time in eight years that the Stanley Cup Finals will go to Game 7, and you won’t want to miss any of the action!

HOW TO WATCH: Catch Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, June 12 on NBC (NBC available in select markets).

NBA Finals

For basketball fans, the season isn’t over yet. Watch as the Golden State Warriors take on the Toronto Raptors in a win-or-go-home tournament for the Warriors. The excitement keeps coming in Game 6, and make sure to keep an eye on the Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard, who has scored the most points in his first postseason with a team in NBA history.

HOW TO WATCH: Tune into Game 6 of the NBA Finals, June 13 on ESPN3, available on Sling Orange.

FIFA Women’s World Cup

The FIFA Women’s World Cup is back! France is hosting the tournament for the first time this year, and the action is already afoot.

The United States enters the competition as the defending champions, following a 5-2 victory against Japan four years ago, in which the U.S. became the first country to win the Women’s World Cup three times. The 2019 stakes are even higher for Team USA, who are favored 2-1 to win it all for what would be a record-breaking fourth victory. Can they do it all again just four years later? Tune in and find out!

HOW TO WATCH: Watch the FIFA Women’s World Cup, airing June 7-July 7 on FS1 and FOX, available on Sling Blue (FOX available in select markets).

U.S. Open

FORE! If you’re a golf fan, this U.S. Open will be one to watch, with Tiger Woods’ legendary Masters win and Brooks Koepka’s 2-shot victory at the PGA Championship.

With three U.S. Open wins behind him, including once at Pebble Beach in 2000, Woods enters the tournament as third place on SportsLine’s predicted leaderboard. Koepka, however, begins the U.S. Open as the overwhelming favorite as the two-time defending champion. To make things even more interesting, Koepka is the first player in PGA history to hold back-to-back titles in two major championships at the same time, and if he pulls off another victory at Pebble Beach, he will be the first person to win the U.S. Open for three consecutive years since 1905.

Whatever happens at this year’s U.S. Open, it’s sure to be another highlight of an already historic golf season.

HOW TO WATCH: Catch the U.S. Open, June 13-16 on FS1 and FOX, available on Sling Blue (FOX available in select markets).

College World Series

For college baseball fans, the month of June means one thing: the College World Series. Each year, the best teams in college baseball set off on the road to Omaha, hoping to win it all.  Whether or not your favorite team makes the journey to Omaha, you won’t want to miss out on a single second catching up on America’s favorite pastime.

HOW TO WATCH: Watch the College World Series, June 15-26 on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU (ESPN and ESPN2 available on Sling Orange; ESPNU available on Sling Orange + Sports Extra).

NBA Draft

If you’re already looking forward to the next NBA season, you can’t miss the NBA Draft. While we know plenty of prospects because of their collegiate performance, the wild cards make this year’s draft class one to watch.

HOW TO WATCH: Watch the 2019 NBA Draft, June 20 on ESPN, available on Sling Orange.
