There are thousands of Kodi add-ons available online in the various repositories. However only very few stand out from the herd. If Covenant or Exodus is considered the best video add-on for TV Show watchers and Movie lovers on Kodi, then what about Sports lovers? The answer is plain and simple. It’s none other than SportsDevil.
SportsDevil is the Holy Grail of sports lovers and enthusiasts. And it doesn’t even matter which sports you are talking about. Be it NFL, NBA, NHL, English Premier League, Cricket, Soccer, Hockey, UFC or any other major sport. There is something for everyone here. You can live stream almost any major sporting event using this amazing Kodi add-on. You can stream videos in different picture qualities like 480p, 720p, 1080p and so on depending upon the speed of your internet connection.
Many of the websites inside SportsDevil might be blocked by your ISP, so you would require a good VPN for Kodi to circumvent it (Please note that we never encourage our readers to access illegal stuff, so access these at your own risk. You can check out more about the legal issues relating to Kodi here.)
SporstDevil can be installed on Kodi 17.6 Krypton either directly installing the repo from the downloaded zip file or by adding source location. Both the methods are very easy and convenient and you can opt either of these.
So here’s how to install SportsDevil on your Kodi 17.6 Krypton in some very easy-to-follow steps.

How to Install SportsDevil Kodi Addon on FireStick and PC
SportsDevil is a very popular Kodi add-on and it can be downloaded from a lot of repositories like Kodil, Colossus, Ares, SimplyCaz and so on. In this tutorial, we will be installing SportsDevil using the Kodil repo, but you’re free to use any.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Kodi users should always use a VPN to protect their identity while streaming.
I personally use and recommend IPvanish, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.
We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here’s how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the IPvanish subscription HERE.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the IPvanish app on your device.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
STEP 1: Launch Kodi Krypton 17.6 on your PC or Amazon Fire TV and open the Settings menu as shown in the pic below.
STEP 2: Now head on to File Manager.
STEP 3: Now click open Add Source.
STEP 4: As soon as you click open Add Source, a pop-up menu will appear. You’ll be prompted to enter a path. Just put kdil.co/repo/ in the box there and click OK as shown in the image below.
Note – Many users are reporting that Sportsdevil failed to install on their device. The main reason behind the error is wrong repo URL. So add the correct Kodil repo URL (kdil.co/repo/) and cross-check before proceeding to the next step.
STEP 5: In the next pop-up menu, you’ll be asked the media source name. Just type in Kodil as shown below. Please verify that you have put everything correctly as it is very crucial and then only click OK.
STEP 6: Now the repository will be downloaded. Now head back to the main menu of Kodi 17.6 Krypton by pressing backspace a few times and open Add-ons menu.
STEP 7: Now click open Package Installer (the open-box icon on top-left as shown below).
STEP 8: Now click open Install from Zip file.
STEP 9: Now select Kodil.zip from the available options and then click OK.
STEP 10: This will start the installation of the Kodi repository. The installation will just take few seconds. Now head back to the previous menu and this time select Install from Repository instead of Install from Zip file.
STEP 11: Now click open Kodil Repository and then select Video Add-ons. Here you’ll see a lot of add-ons, so just scroll down until you find SportsDevil.
STEP 12: Click open SportsDevil. In the next menu, select Install. A few warnings might pop-up, but ignore them. If you haven’t turned ON installation from Unknown Sources, you would be taken to the settings menu, just turn it ON and head back here. Once you click install, the installation will begin.
STEP 13: This will begin the installation. Once it is installed you can just head to the Add-ons menu and find SportsDevil there in the video add-ons section. Now just open it and enjoy the Sports World with SportsDevil on your PC or Amazon Fire TV.
This was one of the methods of installing SportsDevil on Kodi 17.6 Krypton. This is the most popular method. However, there is one more method to install add-ons on Kodi. It is a more direct and shorter one, but it will not work on FireStick.
I strongly recommend a Kodi VPN to hide your identity while streaming with Kodi. Better Safe than Sorry! I personally use and recommend IPvanish which is an award-winning VPN for its fastest Speed.

If you are facing any problems in installing Sportsdevil addon on Kodi 17.6 Krypton, check out the video below.
SportsDevil Installation Failed
There are a few reasons why the addon installation could fail and we need to look at each one by one, starting from the basic.
The most basic aspect of troubleshooting is determining and eliminating any local issues. So, make sure device has the internet access. Try to run any other app that uses the internet or open a website in a browser. If there is no connection, resolve the internet issues before you proceed with SportsDevil installation. In case the internet is working alright and the addon would still not install, we will have to look at other solutions.
Often, the problem is with the server where the repository resides. We have learned to install Sports Devil from Kodil repository, which is, by far, one of the most widely used repositories these days. But, it is known to have downtimes too. So, if you are not able to add Kodil repository as the source during the installation process, the chances are there is a problem with the server. And, when there are server issues, the best you can do is wait for it to be operational again.
I would also recommend rebooting your device, which will also reboot Kodi and refresh the system files. A lot of times a simple reboot resolves the issue.
If nothing seems to be working and you are certain the server is working fine, you may need to reset Kodi and reinstall Sports Devil addon. Resetting Kodi wipes out all your data and addons. But, you can salvage some of it by backing up the Kodi data.
SportsDevil Not Working
SportsDevil is hosted in the Kodil repository and this source usually has the trusted addons. But, every Kodi addon has the potential to run into problems, however rare it may be.
If SportsDevil is not working after installation, again, the first thing you would want to check is that your device still has internet access.
If the internet is indeed working and SportsDevil is not, there could again be a server issue. And, as I said before, if the server is the culprit, waiting is the only solution.
In case you have waited long enough for it to be unlikely to be a server problem, you will want to try some local troubleshooting.
Exit Kodi and reboot the device. Restarting solves many problems and it is likely to fix SportsDevil as well.
If that doesn’t work, uninstall SportsDevil by going to Kodi Home Screen > Add-ons > Video Addons and then reinstall it. There is a chance some files may be corrupt or broken. Follow the same installation process I have outlined above to reinstall this addon.
And, when none of it works, resetting Kodi might be the last resort.
In case you are getting any specific error message I would recommend you to take the screenshot and share it in the comments section. I will try my best to resolve the issue. You may also want to check and share the Kodi logfile. It will help determine the exact cause of the problem.
