FIFA World Cup 2010 Schedule

| by Off The Record

The FIFA World Cup will begin this Friday and the OTR newsroom is getting ramped up. Since Americans are finally showing some interest in soccer, ESPN has stepped up its plan for this year’s broadcast. It’s about time.

All 64 matches will be broadcast live with any games on ESPN or ESPN 2 also being shown on ESPN360.com. But the biggest improvement is that Martin Tyler will be the lead commentator. During the last World Cup the American broadcast was so boring at times that we found ourselves switching to Univision. And we no habla Español.

So here it is, the 2010 World Cup schedule. We’ll be updating it as the matches progress so be sure to bookmark the page.
