2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup Soccer TV and Announcer Schedule

Fox Sports will present all 64 matches of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ live across the Fox broadcast network (35) —21 group stage matches, six round of 16 matches, four quarterfinal matches, two semifinal matches, the third-place match and the FIFA World Cup™ Final — and FS1 (29) — 27 group stage matches and two round of 16 matches — with every match live streaming on the Fox Sports App.

Appearing in their 11th FIFA World Cup™, the United States Men’s National Team will face three opponents out of Group B with all three matches airing on Fox at 2:00 PM ET. The USMNT open play on the first day of the tournament, Monday, Nov. 21, at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan against Wales.

The USMNT’s highly anticipated rematch with England takes center stage the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, Nov. 25 from Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor. The showdown with England marks the third all-time FIFA World Cup™ meeting between the two sides and the first since 2010 when their group stage match ended in a 1-1 draw. The USMNT’s final group stage match vs. IR Iran will take place Tuesday, Nov. 29, from Al Thumama Stadium in Doha.

Fox Sports’ FIFA World Cup™ studio programming on linear alone will span 98 hours. “FIFA World Cup™ Live”, a table-setting show looking forward to the day ahead, will air every day at 4:00 AM ET between Fox and FS1 through the first eight days of the tournament and shift to 9:00 AM ET and 1:00 PM ET starts through the finale. “FIFA World Cup™ Today”, a bridge show between matches delivering pre-and-post match insights and analysis, will air every day between Fox and FS1 throughout the entirety of the tournament. “FIFA World Cup™ Tonight” will air each night of the tournament on Fox at midnight in all time zones recapping the day’s action with interviews, highlights and more from the most recognizable names in soccer.

Five incredibly unique announce teams comprise FOX Sports’ roster of play-by-play commentators and match analysts calling matches at FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. The dynamic John Strong and former U.S. Men’s National Team (USMNT) star Stu Holden anchor the lead broadcast booth for FOX Sports. The Strong-Holden pairing has called more than 250 soccer matches together since 2014 – more than any other English-language television duo – and will surpass the 300-match mark in Qatar. Veteran play-by-play announcer JP Dellacamera pairs with former USMNT legend Cobi Jones, while former U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) sensation Aly Wagner partners with the distinguished Derek Rae. The Rae-Wagner pairing reunites in Qatar after successfully calling matches together for the men’s tournament in 2018.  In a serendipitous assignment, the venerable Ian Darke makes his FOX Sports play-by-play debut alongside USMNT icon Landon Donovan. In 2010, Darke captured the hearts of American soccer fans when he called Donovan’s memorable injury-time goal for the U.S. against Algeria. Former England defender Warren Barton joins the esteemed Jacqui Oatley to round out the announcer pairings.

Lead studio analyst Alexi Lalas, along with fellow U.S. soccer legends Clint Dempsey, Carli Lloyd and Maurice Edu, headline FOX Sports’ list of former soccer stars providing expert insights at FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. Two former goal-scoring machines for the England Women’s National Team, Eni Aluko and Kelly Smith, join the studio analyst roster with their perspectives, while former NFL star Chad Johnson makes his FOX Sports debut as a contributing analyst.

Rob Stone returns as lead host for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ anchoring studio coverage throughout the tournament from the FOX Sports set in Doha, while acclaimed host Kate Abdo is back as lead host of FIFA WORLD CUP TONIGHT. Trusted reporters covering all the FIFA World Cup™ action include Jenny Taft, Rodolfo Landeros and Geoff Shreeves. Tom Rinaldi, 17-time Emmy Award winning storyteller, joins as a reporter and feature correspondent for the first FIFA World Cup™ of his career. Finally, FOX Sports will bring two acclaimed rules analysts to Qatar in former referees Dr. Joe Machnik and Mark Clattenburg.

The next day, Tuesday, Nov. 22, at 2:00 PM ET on Fox, reigning FIFA World Cup™ Champion France will play the winner of the Intercontinental Playoff scheduled for June between Australia, Peru and United Arab Emirates.
