SXSW Exclusive: Get Ready for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with FOX Sports
June 13, 2018
Back in March, we traveled to Austin, Texas to connect with FOX Sports at their *awesome* SXSW house. We ate tacos from around the world, celebrated the upcoming 2018 FIFA World CupTM and talked about life’s most important connections.
But now it’s here! The World CupTM kicks off tomorrow, June 14 at 11 a.m. ET in Russia. 32 teams from around the world will compete in the month-long tournament that ends on July 15. Unfortunately, the U.S. is opting out this year (yes, we know they didn’t qualify), but there are still many talented and incredible teams playing that you won’t want to miss. You can view the full schedule, here.
How can you watch the World CupTM?
Games broadcasted in English can be found watched on Fox FS1, while the Spanish broadcast can be found on either Telemundo or Universo.
