UK World Cup TV schedule

ITV and the BBC have sat down and agreed the schedule of matches they will each air during the 2018 FIFA World Cup. ITV will show the opening game between Russia and Saudia Arabia on 14 June, but the networks will go head-to-head when they both broadcast the final live from Moscow on Sunday, 15 July at 16:00.

Following the group stage ITV has the first pick in the last 16. The BBC will have the first two choices of quarter-final games, including England’s if they progress that far.

In the UK most of the games – with a few exceptions – will kick off daily at 13.00, 16.00 and 19.00.
