FOX’s World Cup commentators schedule for group stage of Russia 2018

FOX Sports has announced the assignments of commentators for the group stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

With only two lead commentators out of six in Russia (while all of the others will be calling games off a TV screen from a studio in Los Angeles), it’ll be interesting to see how much of a difference it’ll be to the viewers despite a FOX Sports executive saying it’s no big deal. For soccer fans who watch the sport often on TV, most of us will be able to notice.

Looking at the assignment of announcers, FOX’s lead commentary team of John Strong and Stu Holden will commentate nine of the games in the group stage including two of the matches featuring Argentina.

Meanwhile the honors of announcing the first game goes to JP Dellacamera and Tony Meola.
