FOX Sports 1 Announces World Cup Coverage Plans
Even though FOX Sports does not have the rights to show World Cup matches this summer, the sports network will still be down in Brazil providing analysis and commentary during the tournament.
Last week, the channel detailed how FOX Sports 1 will be involved in coverage of the world’s biggest tournament. FOX Sports reporter Grant Wahl will be providing live reports from the US camp, while Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves (freelancing for FOX Sports) will be providing reports from the England camp.
Meanwhile in Los Angeles, U.S. Soccer Hall of Famers Eric Wynalda and Cobi Jones along with former England international Warren Barton and former Netherlands international Mario Melchiot will provide daily studio analysis on the matches and hot topics around the beautiful game.
World Cup analysis will be featured on FOX Sports 1 shows America’s Pregame (daily at 6pm ET), and later on Fox Sports Live (nightly, 11 pm ET). Beginning with the opening match on June 12, the shows will include highlights and analysis on the matches of each day as well as what we can look forward the next day until the World Cup ends in mid-July.
