The FIFA World Cup is arguably one of the biggest sporting events in the world and it is widely followed by many people. Luckily there are many channels that support and continuously monitor the game. A lot of people want a play-by-play account of every game and YouTube is the exact platform to provide that. Even if you are late to the event, uploads of the game as well as commentary are readily available. With over 122 million daily active users, and over 1 billion hours of content watched every day, YouTube is one of the most viable ways to get any up-to-date information, no matter what you are into. Here is a list, in no particular order, of some of the best YouTube channels to follow to satisfy all your football needs.
- U.S. Soccer channel
Football is a major sport in the United States, although it is better known as soccer, either way, this channel dedicates itself to covering all things soccer-related in the U.S. Men’s and women’s games are covered and of course, the FIFA World Cup is covered to great extent, mostly following the teams in the CONCACAF confederation. The United States hosted the FIFA World Cup back in 1994 and the event was met with overwhelming worldwide praise. The U.S. team itself has not had a lot of success on the worldwide stage, but it doesn’t hinder the love and passion they have for the game. This channel is worth checking out if you want to follow the U.S. international team and have recent and correct information about the sport.
- FIFA channel
One of the most popular channels on this list, the FIFA channel keeps you well up to date. This channel has everything that you need to know about football and it covers both male and female versions of the sport. It hosts a wide variety of interviews, round-ups, documentaries, and classic games which give you a taste of how the future of the sport will play out. There is even information about the current situation for each team leading up to the games this year and provides 2022 World Cup final odds based on how the active teams have fared over the past few years. The FIFA channel has had over 3 billion views so far so it is fairly safe to say that it is a channel worth following if you want to keep up with your football news.
- SBS Sport
This Australian channel is multifaceted, covering a wide variety of sports from all across the world, from cycling to motorsports, figure skating, basketball, and of course, football. Football (soccer) is particularly popular in Australia due to the diverse culture. As we all know, football is a world-renowned sport but unfortunately, Australia is tucked away in the southern hemisphere and is often not in the same time zone as many other countries are when it comes to kick-off time. SBS Sport provides all the up-to-date information about football that Australians need to keep abreast of the ongoing games. An example of this is that the FIFA 2022 World Cup is going to be held in Qatar in November and Australia will be playing France on the 23rd at 6:00 am AEDT, so unless an alarm is set, fans will want to get as much information as they can when they get up.
