The world cup is just round the corner, with the first games kicking off on Thursday 12th of June. Like the Olympics, the rights to broadcast the World Cup can't be bought so it can be seen live on free channels around the world.

The BBC and ITV will be splitting the coverage together with both broadcasters offering many live matches across TV and apps. So viewers can watch live games on the go on tablets and smartphones.

Here is a list of the games and what channel you can watch them on. All the times are listed in BST.

You will not only be able to watch games live, but you'll also be able to catch up on ones you've missed and watch highlights.
