The BBC has unveiled details of its broadcasting schedule for the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2018.
Games will be shown live on BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Four and streamed on BBC Sport online and BBC iPlayer, including England’s opening two group games against Tunisia (18th June) and Panama (24th June) – a first for the BBC who have never before shown England’s first two games in a World Cup exclusively live.
Highlights of England’s non-live games will be available on BBC One and selected games will be replayed on BBC Two throughout the tournament. There will also be live coverage from every World Cup game on Radio 5 live.
BBC Sport’s digital service will also bring live HD video coverage of all BBC matches, and viewers can go back ‘live’ with BBC Rewind to watch England face current group opponents Belgium and Tunisia in the 1990 and 1998 World Cups, respectively.
The BBC is also enabling audiences to personalise their experience – as well as rate the players’ performance in every match of the tournament – to receive all the latest news results and video highlights through My Sport, available online and on mobile devices.
