The excitement is building for FIFA World Cup 2014, and we’re excited to share with you our coverage plans for what we expect will be the most watched tournament in the history of the sport.
World Soccer Talk will be bringing you the most complete and remarkable content throughout the entire tournament. We’ll be bringing you the news, analysis and opinion from around the world, so that World Soccer Talk will be your one place to visit for everything you need to know about the World Cup.
Our World Cup 2014 coverage plans include:
1. A comprehensive Everything You Need to Know About the World Cup guide, which gives you all of the information you could possibly need — everything from TV schedules, where to listen to games on the radio, previews of all 32 teams, resources such as how to pronounce player names, and much more — all in one place on one convenient page. The guide will be updated daily throughout the tournament. You can bookmark it at www.worldsoccertalk.com/worldcup
2. We will be bringing you breaking World Cup news, opinion and analysis 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the tournament. We’re pleased to announce that Kartik Krishnaiyer will be the World Soccer Talk managing editor for the nightly content on the site, while Christopher Harris will be the World Soccer Talk managing editor for the daily content. Between the two of us, we’ll have all bases covered.
3. World Soccer Talk will have writers in Brazil — from Belo Horizonte to Salvador — reporting on the World Cup experience from everything including training camps, to what’s happening in the streets as well as the passion in the stadiums. Our aim is to bring you a unique perspective of the tournament from World Soccer Talk writers such as Juan Arango and Jameson Lam, who will be in Brazil.
4. Today, we’re launching World Soccer Talk’s World Cup Fantasy Game, where you can select an all-star starting XI from among the players on all 32 teams. There’ll be daily cash prizes available as well as a free version to test your fantasy skills. The game is free to register.
