Hosted by former Socceroo Captain Craig Foster and The World Game‘s Lucy Zelic, and with exclusive commentary from Martin Tyler, SBS’s coverage will begin with the opening match on Thursday 14 June from 10.30pm (AEST) as hosts Russia face Saudi Arabia, kicking off a huge month of football on SBS. 

The blockbuster first weekend continues with the highly anticipated clash between Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal and fierce rival Spain from 3.30am, Saturday 16 June, ahead of coverage of the Socceroos premiere appearance from the family-friendly time of 7pm Saturday night when they play world number seven France before Cup favourites Germany take on Mexico from 12am, Monday 18 June.

Both matches will feature exclusive commentary from David Basheer and former Socceroo Captain Craig Moore and extensive analysis live from Russia.

SBS director of Sport Ken Shipp said: “The FIFA World Cup™ is the absolute pinnacle of football, a sport that truly unites Australia’s diverse communities. We know Aussies love to get behind our sporting heroes and are confident they will join us in supporting the Socceroos, and of course their other national teams, as they take on the best in the world in Russia next month.

“SBS is deeply passionate about football, believing its universal appeal can break down barriers without language. In our 30th year broadcasting the FIFA World Cup™, Australians can again turn to SBS’s trusted coverage and analysis of the tournament on television, radio, and digital this June and July.”
