FOX’s World Cup schedule of pre-match, post-match and entertainment shows

From June 14 to July 15, FOX Sports will broadcast all 64 World Cup games live across their networks (38 on FOX, 26 on FS1), but what will their schedule look like for all of the shoulder programming — i.e. the pre-match, post-match and entertainment shows?

Judging by the first 4-5 days of FOX’s World Cup coverage, FOX Sports will average six hours per day of live coverage outside of the games themselves.

FOX’s coverage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup begins Wednesday from Moscow when FS1 airs the 2018 FIFA World Cup Preview Show from 7-8 PM ET. From then on, it’s a daily onslaught of FIFA World Cup Live hosted by Kate Abdo in the early morning hours while World Cup Today kicks off later hosted by Rob Stone.

Meanwhile, FOX’s late-night show hosted by Fernando Fiore entitled World Cup Tonight will flip back and forth between FOX and FS1, often starting on one of the two channels and then continuing on the other station immediately after the first hour ends.

With World Cup Tonight, expect a laid-back entertainment show with plenty of jokes. In a recent interview, FOX Sports Executive Producer summed up FOX’s vision for the World Cup by stating, “There is truly something called the Fox Sports attitude. We want it to be fun. This isn’t sports church. This is meant to be a little escapism. And viewers can expect that from us.”

Last but not least, the World Cup Match Day show will feature highlights from the day’s action.
