TV Channels Broadcasting FIFA World Cup 2018 (Worldwide)
FEBRUARY 19, 2018
The world most watched sports event “FIFA World Cup” takes place this summer in Russia in June-July 2018. Widely known as the biggest tournament in world football its also not only the most watched but with the biggest prize money at stake. 2014 World Cup in Brazil had larger viewing numbers than even the Olympics and we can expect similar results this time around. We take a look at all the tv channels broadcasting FIFA World Cup matches in different parts of the world.
FIFA has promised very extensive coverage details for this year’s world cup with greater emphasis on “terrestrial tv” with free coverage. FIFA sold the broadcasting rights international at a very healthy price and this will be the biggest international football TV rights deal of any competition where FIFA is set to generate around $1.85bn (£1.15bn) for the cycle of 2018 to 2022. Majority of the money comes from World Cup rights.
Below is the list of TV Channels broadcasting FIFA World Cup live/repeat/replay in different parts of the world. Around 200 territories across the world will broadcast FIFA matches at some point during the tournament.
