SportsDevil is the most well-known third party Kodi addon for streaming live sporting events and replays free online. With its wide variety of replay and live IPTV HD sports streams, Sports Devil is often considered the ultimate Kodi sports addon for fans of all types of professional sports.
Keep reading for a step-by-step guide on how to install one of the greatest sports Kodi add-ons of all time. The Kodil Repo will be used for SportsDevil January 2020 installation in the detailed tutorial later in the article, though the Loop Repo is used in the quick install guide.
While it works great to access live sports events (Premier League, NFL, etc) when used properly, SportsDevil and other free streaming Kodi sports add-ons (and many Firestick sports apps) can find live game streams not properly licensed for redistribution. These apps and add-ons have become the targets of corporate legal departments, government agencies, internet service providers, and copyright infringement watchdog groups. It's always highly suggested to only connect through your Surfshark VPN app
to watch live sports broadcasts and networks in this way. Without the encrypted protection of a VPN, you may quickly find yourself facing internet blackouts, court cases, stolen identity, and worse.
Aside from monitoring and recording your Internet activities, most streaming sports are actively blocked when you access them in plain sight. SportsDevil provides abundant streams when using the steps from the following guide and a VPN protected connection. Encrypt your streams; seriously. Anyone using Kodi third-party sports add-ons recently without an encrypted connection is having their information gathered for potential future litigation (pending court cases).
While SportsDevil is a great sports streaming Kodi addon when set up properly, the best working American football streaming addon for Kodi is currently Gridiron Legends from the Nole Dynasty repository. If you’re wanting to watch live or replay football games, the latest version of SportsDevil’s NFL and NCAA football coverage can’t compete with the Gridiron Legends addon.

Please Share Free Kodi Live Sports Streams
You should be able to connect to an encrypted server with your Surfshark VPN app to access any live sports streams going on right now or within the next few minutes. Note that most game and event streams aren’t available until very shortly before the start of play.
Many streams are blocked by internet service providers, especially in the USA and UK markets. The only way to bypass this censorship and watch streams with many Kodi add-ons is by using an encrypted VPN tunnel. Without your VPN app connected, you may not even see the available streams.

Before Installing ANY Kodi Third-Party TV Addon
The release of a Kodi 17 Krypton update brought new security settings designed to block the installation of third-party add-ons by default. Fixing this requires a simple Kodi preferences adjustment. Please read our open reference to Enable Unknown Sources guide which teaches how to make Kodi allow the installation of unofficial add-ons.
It’s necessary that you make this adjustment to enable unknown sources; otherwise, Kodi won’t accept the Kodil repo source and installation will fail. Once it’s done, you shouldn’t have to adjust this setting again. You’ll be ready to access all the best Kodi repos and great working add-ons that the Kodi community has to offer.

Finally, you will download the SportsDevil add-on to get it on your Kodi Fire Stick device and enjoy.
To get a definitive SportsDevil repo is not easy, but Kodi Israel Group (Kodil) has been doing a good job of keeping the latest working Sports Devil version available for a very long time.

You can easily get any available NCAA or NFL football game (including the Super Bowl), MLB baseball game (including the World Series), any NBA match, or even a Formula 1 race or golf tournament stream working if you’re into it.

SportsDevil is How to Watch Live Sports on Firestick
Even if you aren’t watching sports events in SportsDevil, chances are the Kodi addon you are watching with is using SportsDevil as a Kodi addon dependency. Many Kodi addons with even a small amount of sports coverage do so, as SportsDevil sets the standard for rebroadcasting or streaming sports coverage live from around the world.
Note: The Loop repo may be the best place to get the latest Sports Devil, though it has not stood the test of time like Kodil. The Kodil repo address changes on occasion, so check the Kodil Repository article if you find SportsDevil not working or updating properly. The live Sports Devil addon was also found in the Supremacy Kodi repository, though that is down and not working for now. In the case of SportsDevil not working or going down, be sure to checking back here. We will update this article to let you know if SportsDevil has been updated by another developer or is most recently housed in a different repository. We’ll also let you know if this version just stops working altogether.
