Football World Cup - The Biggest Football Competition In The World



World Cup 2010 South Africa - Live Online

Stop your grinning and drop your linen, it's finally here. After what seems like an age since the 2006 World Cup in Germany those 4 years have passed and now it is time for the 2010 World Cup, hosted by South Africa. This will be the largest sporting event of 2010 without a doubt and one that South Africa hopes will go down in history as one of the best world cups of all time. The SA government want this World Cup to emulate what the Rugby World Cup did all that time ago when the black population of South Africa threw themselves behind the mainly white dominated Rugby Union team. Hopefully for the hosts white South Africans will chuck themselves into supporting what is seen as a mainly black sport. None of us want to see empty stadiums and with all the effort going into the infrastructure we all wish South Africa the very best for a stunning world cup.

Enough of the politics, what about the football? If you can remember all the way back to 2006 what was noticable was the lack of attacking football in that World Cup. Teams seemed unwilling to take risks and go for the win, group stage free flowing football was quickly turned into dull stalemates in the knockout stages resulting in the dullest world cup I can remember. This can't happen again can it? If I was a betting man I'd have money on saying NO! There has never been a World Cup with so much hype surrounding it, never a World Cup with so many possible match winners in each team, never a World Cup with so many teams capable of winning it. Who knows, even England might do something a bit special?

The global interest in the World Cup speaks for itself, live coverage will be available just about anywhere in the World. Viewing figures for the football world cup blow away every other sporting event. Just the World Cup final itself attracts viewing figures of around 250 million people, or to put it another way around 2 and a half times any other sporting event (You can keep your Superbowl). TV coverage will be extensive with HD viewing being widely available. What was brand new technology in 2006 is now very much main stream to the benefit of all football fans. What has also come along way is the availability of online world cup streams, in the UK the BBC and ITV who are sharing coverage will be showing every game they cover live online (You can find the BBC world cup coverage here and the ITV world cup coverage here). There will be that many ways of watching the world cup live online that nobody should miss out on any game they want to watch. The only question will your boss let you watch the World Cup live online?
