From a media player application like Kodi, you can always expect to have a humongous amount of content. But what if you were told that you can have access to all kinds of sporting events from just one add-on? SportsDevil is one such add-on dedicated completely to sports. This article is all about the SportsDevil add-on and its installation on Kodi.
What is SportsDevil?
SportsDevil is a third-party Kodi add-on that provides you access to all kinds of Sports content such as live sporting events and on-demand sports content. It provides you access to live sporting events such as Premier League, NFL, NCAA, NFL, and whatnot. It doesn’t even let PPV events like UFC and Boxing getaway.
Football, Basketball, Ice Hockey, Baseball, Tennis, Motorsport, Rugby, Snooker – whatever sport you are interested in, just name it. You’ll find it in SportsDevil. For all the content it provides, SportsDevil offers different video qualities from as low as 420p to as high as Full HD and lets you choose your preferred quality. Providing all these content for free, it is the ultimate sports Kodi add-on for all types of professional sports fans.
SportsDevil hosts content itself and also gathers content from other sources. So, either way, you will be provided the content you look for. It is a very popular Kodi add-on that you can find SportsDevil in many Kodi repositories such as Lazykodi, Supremacy, Kodi, One Nation Portal and more.
SportsDevil works on all platforms like Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, Firestick, Roku, Raspberry Pi, and all Kodi supporting devices.

Why is VPN important when using SportsDevil?
Although SportsDevil offers sports content from everywhere across the globe, it doesn’t necessarily mean that SportsDevil is free to access everywhere around the world.
Using a VPN, you will be able to mask your IP address and thereby access content even if it restricted in your country.
SportsDevil offers copyrighted content for free which is clearly piracy. Also, being a third-party add-on, SportsDevil might pose a risk anytime, if not now. To prevent yourself from being in the path of lawsuits, using a VPN is most important.
Hitches in using SportsDevil
SportsDevil, although provides sports content in a humongous amount, lacks a basic feature. It has no search functionality. For instance, if you’d like to watch a soccer match telecasted a few days before, you have to search for it manually as it doesn’t allow you to search for sports content based on its categories.
Another problem with SportsDevil is that it provides you with content from unverified sources. Even if it doesn’t pose any threat now, it doesn’t mean that you will be safe from malicious files. It can be solved by using a VPN.
SportsDevil is one of the best and most reliable Kodi add-on dedicated to sports content. You can have the SportsDevil add-on installed from any Kodi repository as the installation process is the same for all repositories.
With SportsDevil installed on your Kodi, just launch the add-on, select any sporting event, and enjoy!
