The World Cup kicks off in Moscow on Thursday, with United Kingdom pop star Robbie Williams and Russian opera singer Aida Garifullina set to perform at the opening ceremony held before the first match between hosts Russia and Saudi Arabia. The broadcaster is also working on World Cup highlights customized with musical GIFs through Gifnote.com, a soccer Emoji keyboard with Sportsmania and an interactive bracket experience.

- Soccer fans in the Triangle are thrilled that the 2026 World Cup tournament will be held across three nations, including the United States.

Of course, soccer's popularity extends far beyond the 32 countries that qualified for the World Cup this year.

"We're going to see the same thing - greater excitement, more people marketing, using the game to market their brands, more people buying tickets, more people participating in the sport", he said. Sling TV will also have two team channels with commentary for each team in English, including a player isolation camera, a team bench camera and real-time team versus team match stats. If you don't have cable you can stream it via Hulu with Live TV, or fuboTV.
