The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be the 21st FIFA World Cup, a quadrennial international football tournament contested by the men’s national teams of the member associations of FIFA. It is scheduled to take place in Russia from 14 June to 15 July 2018, after the country was awarded the hosting rights on 2 December 2010.

Broadcasting rights for the World Cup have been purchased by 80 countries around the world, often with several broadcasters from each country winning the right to show matches.  In the UK, broadcasting rights will be split between the BBC and ITV, and all games will be shown for free to anyone with a TV license. In many countries, matches are being broadcast on premium, paid-for channels.

If you want to watch the World Cup for free here as the best solution per country. However, if you want to have access to these TV Channels you will need to live in their countries because the TV channels are not available out of it.

Best free World Cup streaming option: BBC iPlayer and ITV

We’ve labeled the BBC iPlayer and ITV as the best free options, but there are some notable limitations for these.

The BBC will be playing all of the FIFA World Cup for free through their live streaming and on-demand iPlayer app and website. Meanwhile, you can watch ITV online through the ITV Hub. You can also watch both the BBC and ITV’s streams through the TVPlayer.com website.

Both the BBC and ITV services heavily block most VPNs, however, Tunnello VPN will be able to bypass their limitation and give you access to the World Cup.

If for any reason the BBC and ITV player is blocked just switch to another country.
