FIFA has created a site with match times, schedules and all the information you need during this year’s World Cup.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicked off in Brazil on Thursday, and it will continue through July 13. Aside from the political implications within the host nation, the World Cup is undoubtedly going to be an exciting one (even American fans are catching on to the world’s most popular sport). As I’m typing this, the Netherlands team is absolutely dismantling the Spanish side that beat them in the championship match last time around. If you were unable to take the trip to Brazil in order to cheer your nation’s squad on in person, there are a variety of options for online viewing. Of course, those viewing options depend on the country in which you are currently located. No matter where you are, however, FIFA’s own site has a great deal of information about the tournament.
All of the 2014 World Cup match times and locations can be viewed on FIFA’s site, as well as live updates of scores as games are going on. FIFA even has a “Live Blog” section for each game, providing live updates of the game’s major (and minor) events as they occur on the pitch. The site also clearly displays the various groups of the tournament, making it easier to keep track of which teams will be playing each other (this section is also a reminder that the United States likely has no chance of making it out of the group stage with Germany, Portugal and Ghana as its opponents). The site also includes comprehensive information about Brazil — where to stay, what to do, and how to get from stadium to stadium — as well as a “World Cup Timeline” that details past tournaments. If you’re at all interested in the World Cup this year, there’s a good chance you’ll find something useful on the site FIFA has created.
