ICYMI, the 21st FIFA World Cup is in full swing in Russia and is scheduled to run until July 28, 2018! 11 cities around the country are set to host the football games, with brand new stadiums built to seat about 40,000 people each.

While it might be challenging to go to see all of the games live, you can access live coverage of the events online, on special TV programs, or at sports bars and other establishments.

We’ve rounded up some of the best places you can catch the FIFA games as they happen, wherever you are within Metro Manila!




Sometimes the best way to enjoy any thrilling event is from the warm comfort of your own home. Your best option for streaming online without needing to leave the house is Fox+.

Fox Sports has exclusive rights to cover FIFA 2018, and they are going to have live streaming so you can stay safely updated just with your laptop or mobile device.

Stream their content online today at or on their iOS & Android app!



Check your cable provider for listings of these channels if you want to catch your favorite games on your TV.

As mentioned earlier, Fox Sports will have steady coverage of the World Cup, but in case you don’t have that channel, ABS-CBN luckily has you covered via their own channels: Sports and Action and Liga.
