Fox set to air 38 World Cup matches on network television
For the World Cup, Fox will present all 64 matches live, with 38 on network television. The remaining 26 will appear on FS1, with all games live streamed via Fox Sports GO and Fox Soccer Match Pass.
“The 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia is not only the summer’s biggest sporting event, but FOX Sports’ largest production in our 24-year history,” said David Neal of Fox Sports. “Our programming team has done a terrific job curating a schedule fit for an event of this magnitude, showcasing thrilling matchups on both FOX and FS1, including more matches than ever before on broadcast television.”
This is the largest commitment to network programming for a World Cup, more than the last four World Cups combined, Fox notes.
Fox Sports will broadcast from the heart of Russia for its coverage with a studio in iconic Red Square. The space, from JHD Group, will serve the month-long tournament providing pregame, postgame and late night shows.
