The draw will determine the qualifying rounds for confederations around the world, including UEFA (Europe), CAF (Africa), CONCACAF (North America, Central America and the Caribbean) and other regions.

The good news is that the draw will be shown live in English or Spanish across a range of options. See below.

For FOX, they’ll be using the talents of Sky Sports presenter Kate Abdo again. This time she’ll be on site live from St. Petersburg, Russia, as the Preliminary Draw sets the groups for the first phase of qualifying in five of the six confederations and gives most countries an early road map of what they need to do to qualify for Russia in 2018. Rob Stone, Alexi Lalas and Eric Wynalda break down the results of the draw from FOX Sports’ Los Angeles studio.

    Gaffer, anyway to get a list of what broadcaster will be showing which qualifiers? Like BeIN with South American matches. Also is One World Sports getting Asia matches again? I like following China and Japan.

    Not really enthusiastic about a,Russia or Qatar WC. England got a decent draw.

    US get a huge break. Group B in CONCACAF looks to be Costa Rica, Panama, Haiti and Jamaica. Put the US on top instead of CRC and eek! Instead they get T&T, St. Vincent & the Grenadines/Aruba winner, and Antigua and Barbuda/Guatemala winner. Good luck to CRC finishing in the top 2 in Group B…
