Kickoff Times For 2014 World Cup Will Be A Welcome Treat for US Viewers

Now that Euro 2012 is almost wrapped up, the next major international soccer tournament we have to look forward to is World Cup 2014, which will be held across Brazil.

Previous World Cup tournaments have been relatively favorable to US viewing audiences in terms of kick-off times. World Cup 2010 in South Africa and World Cup 2006 in Germany were a breeze. The 2002 World Cup in South Korea-Japan was an ordeal with matches being played in the middle of the night or the early hours of the morning. Luckily, the kickoff times at Brazil 2014 will be quite favorable to US viewers.

In the group stage matches of World Cup 2014, the games will kick off at Noon, 3pm, 6pm and 9pm ET. The quarter-final matches will kick off at Noon and 4pm ET. The semi-finals will begin at 4pm ET, while the final will kick off at 3pm ET.

All matches for 2014 World Cup will be televised in the United States by ESPN. FOX Soccer has the rights for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup tournaments.
