The world cup starts on June 12th 2018, and I’m here to help you get ready for the biggest sporting event of the year. Whether you’re a die hard soccer fan or just love the atmosphere created by the World Cup, this blog will provide you with everything you need to know about the tournament.
The tournament takes place in Russia this year, so fans from around the world will have to make their way over to Russia if they want to attend any matches. This can be incredibly expensive however, so most people will be watching from home. To prepare for this, it is important that your television is up to date and that you have a quality cable package in order to watch all 64 games. If you don’t want to pay for cable then there are free streaming options online as well.
Another way many people experience the World Cup is through video games. With the latest FIFA game coming out just before the start of the tournament, players will be able to simulate the World Cup and experience what it’s like to play with their favorite players on one of soccer’s grandest stages.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is just a few days away from kicking off. This summer’s tournament will take place in Russia, which means that it’s an early start if you want to catch the action live.
With so many games to choose from, we thought we’d help you prepare by giving you some tips on how to get the most out of this year’s big event.
First things first: What time is it?
The World Cup starts on June 14th, and runs all the way through July 15th. With games scheduled throughout the day, but mostly during lunch and after work hours in the US, this can get tricky. First thing you need to do is check what time your favourite matches are being played.
Second: What time zone is it?
The World Cup will be played across 12 stadiums in 11 cities across Russia. That means different time zones for each game – which can be confusing if you don’t know where to look. Luckily Google has you covered: You can search ‘World Cup schedule’ directly on Google to see an interactive version of all upcoming matches with local times for each city. You can also ask Assistant “Hey Google, when does France play Australia
1. Get your passport ready
2. Book your plane tickets and finalize your travel plans
3. Buy the correct equipment for this World Cup
4. Train and prepare for the grueling heat, humidity, and altitude of Brazil (especially if you are from Europe)
5. Start researching Group A
6. Learn about the local culture and customs of Brazil
7. Watch all the classic World Cup games from years past
8. Begin to follow some of your favorite players now so that you can root for them during the World Cup
A new World Cup is right around the corner. It starts on June 14th in Russia and the whole world will be tuned in to watch it.
1) Get a VPN
If you plan to stream the games, then you need to protect your identity by using a VPN. A VPN (virtual private network) is a service that encrypts all of your traffic, so ISPs can’t see what you’re doing. Many VPNs also give users access to blocked content like Netflix shows and movies only available in certain regions, for example.
2) Download an app
Downloading the official FIFA app will ensure you get all the latest news regarding team line ups, injuries, last minute changes and more. You can also check out the event schedule and get directions to stadiums on the app.
3) Watch games live
If you don’t already have one, it’s time to sign up for an account with FOX Sports Go. This will allow you to stream every single game live on your phone or tablet without any commercials.
4) Test your knowledge

5) Start watching
The 2010 World Cup was the 19th FIFA World Cup, the world championship for men’s national association football teams. It took place in South Africa from 11 June to 11 July 2010. The bidding process for hosting the tournament finals was open only to African nations. In 2004, the international football federation, FIFA, selected South Africa over Egypt and Morocco to become the first African nation to host the finals.
The matches were played in ten stadiums in nine host cities around the country, with the final played at the Soccer City stadium in South Africa’s largest city, Johannesburg. Thirty-two teams were selected for participation via a worldwide qualification tournament that began in August 2007. In the first round of the tournament finals, the teams competed in round-robin groups of four teams for points, with the top two teams in each group proceeding. These 16 teams advanced to the knockout stage, where three rounds of play decided which teams would participate in the final.
In the final, Spain, the European champions, defeated the Netherlands 1–0 after extra time, with Andrés Iniesta’s goal in the 116th minute giving Spain their first world title. Spain became the eighth nation to win a World Cup outside their own continent: Argentina (1978), France (1998), England
