How to track MLB and other sports fixtures with your Outlook calendar

April means one thing for sports fans, and that's the return of the MLB for another season of stellar Baseball action. With so many games per year, though, it's tough to keep track on exactly when, where and who against your favorite team is playing.

Fortunately there's a really simple way to achieve just that with your Outlook calendar. Here's how to add your favorite team's schedule.

For the sake of this guide we're completing this on Outlook.com, but a similar process applies to Outlook Calendar on Windows 10 or the Outlook mobile app for other platforms.

  1. Open up your Outlook calendar.
  2. Click on add calendar.

  • Alright! Got all of my Cleveland teams in my calendar. Even that really bad NFL team. The Browns have been so bad for so long that they should be giving away the Surface NFL type cover.
  • Mmm...only Holiday calendars are available to me ☹
  • Mine read like this: New | Add calendar | Interesting calendars | Share | Print Choose "Interesting calendars" It didn't look like the screenshots in the article.
  • US Only no doubt.
  • It doesn't work in the app. App just selects holiday calendars by default. There's no way to select sports. You can only do it on the webpage.
  • The desktop app has all the sports listed.
  • Could be region specific. Others are saying they only see holidays too. I'm in Canada. Though oddly I can set it up through the webpage.
  • Wonder if it's tied into the Sports app?
    As I said below it already had my team as an option all I had to do was tick the box to add the calendar.
  • This is AWESOME! Doing this very soon.  Bless Opening Day!
  • On the Win10 app it automatically had my favourite football team listed.
    Not always accurate as it doesn't take into account fixtures being moved around due to cup matches or Sky schedules.
  • This works well although I find I can't really use these because the score is added to the calendar entry soon after the game ends. That's a problem for me because I'm usually watching NFL games on catch-up because I'm in the UK. It's fine if I remember not to look at my calendar before watching the game but I've made that mistake before. It would be nice to have a calendar option which didn't add the scores or at least didn't update the calendar entries until later in the week.
  • It's cool, but then it reminds you about every game as if you are going to it. Like you better leave now due to traffic. And it makes your status Busy during the game. I don't see a way to edit the entire series of events to change these settings. Only one at a time.
  • Hmm that's good to know, thanks.
  • Works on outlook mobile on the other platforms. What a joke ...
  • Does not work on the Windows Mobile app
