World Cup schedule: How to watch every match


By The New York Times


The World Cup began Sunday, Nov. 20 — a date that was changed only months before the tournament — with the first group stage match, between Qatar, the host nation, and Ecuador. The group stage runs through Dec. 2, with up to four games each day.


The 32 teams are divided into eight groups of four, designated by the letters A-H, and each team plays all the other teams in its group once. The top two finishers in each group advance to the round of 16, which begins Saturday, Dec. 3. After that, the World Cup is a straight knockout tournament, through the final on Sunday, Dec. 18.


In the United States, English-language broadcasts will air on Fox or its cable channel FS1 (many subscription streaming services include those channels, such as SlingTV, Fubo and Vidgo). Spanish-language telecasts will air on Telemundo or Universo and will stream on Peacock (the first 12 games will not require a paid subscription).
