World Cup 2018, 2022: Where To Watch FIFA's Live Announcement

The announcement from FIFA as to which countries will be hosting the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, originally scheduled for around 10 A.M. ET, has been delayed. Which just gives you more time to figure out where to watch it. 

The announcement is being broadcast live all around the world, and chances are you get at least one of the channels:

  • ESPN
  • ESPN Deportes
  • Fox Soccer Channel
  • FOX Deportes 
  • CNN International 
  • Univision 

But if you are unable to operate you television, or more likely, are stuck at work Thursday morning, FIFA's official website will also offer a live-stream of the announcement. You can watch it live by clicking right here (and based on Wednesday's bid presentations, the quality of their media player is pretty good).

As it stands now, England is the heavy favorite to land the 2018 Cup, while Qatar is a small favorite to edge out the United Stats for the 2022 bid. Qatar would be the first Arab country to host a World Cup.
