For 30 days, all eyes are fixed on Brazil and FOX Sports 1 has the personnel and programming to cover it all.

[via press release from FOX Sports]


Los Angeles - This summer, work productivity is expected to plummet as the mercury rises and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the world's biggest single-sport event, gets underway. For 30 days, all eyes are fixed on Brazil and FOX Sports 1 has the personnel and programming to cover it all.

FOX Sports has gathered a small army of respected soccer analysts to contribute daily to AMERICA'S PREGAME and FOX SPORTS LIVE, as well as FOXSoccer.com, America's most-visited online soccer destination. Most notably are FOX Sports' soccer contributor and Sports Illustrated Senior Columnist Grant Wahl who heads to Brazil to report live for both shows from the USA team base, while FOX Sports reporter Geoff Schreeves is primarily entrenched within the England camp.

Daily studio coverage includes opinions from U.S. Soccer Hall of Famers Eric Wynalda and Cobi Jones who both played in a record three World Cups and were part of the legendary 1994 U.S. squad that forever changed soccer in America. Former England international Warren Barton and former Dutch international Mario Melchiot also provide unparalleled analysis throughout the month-long tournament.

Each weekday highlights, news and analysis come first on AMERICA'S PREGAME (daily, 6:00 PM ET) and later on FOX SPORTS LIVE (nightly, 11:00 PM ET) beginning with the opening match on Thursday, June 12 and continue until a champion is crowned on Sunday, July 13. The U.S. kicks-off its FIFA World Cup quest against familiar foe Ghana on Monday, June 16.

Gaming analyst Todd Fuhrman contributes entertaining segments on the odds and ends of the FIFA World Cup groups and matches for AMERICA'S PREGAME and FOX SPORTS LIVE, while the shows also offers features on the stars and up-and-comers to watch; the U.S. team without forward Landon Donovan; and the rest of their so-called Group of Death with Portugal, Germany and Ghana.

FOXSoccer.com has also assembled a full team of writers on the ground, with Leander Schaerlaeckens embedded with the U.S. Men's National Team and Amy Lawrence, Patrick Barclay, Jonathan Wilson and Jamie Trecker all providing unrivaled coverage of the events on the streets of Brazil. FOXSoccer.com offers exclusive daily web hits along with statistical analysis and real-time commentary via MatchTrax across smartphones, tablets and computers. The FOX Sports GO app live streams all World Cup coverage on AMERICA'S PREGAME and FOX SPORTS LIVE.

In addition, FOX Sports draws from its vast array of assets with the latest updates from FOX Sports Brasil, Sky Sports Germany, Sky Sports Italia and Sky Sports Japan. Viewers can follow on social media with @FOXSoccer, @FOXSoccerTrax, @AmericasPregame and @FOXSportsLive for match commentary and up-to-the-minute reporting.

FOX Deportes' leading news program Central FOX and talk show La Ultima Palabra bring viewers complete commentary around the World Cup. Renowned soccer stars Alberto Garcia Aspe, Luis Hernandez, Daniel "El Ruso" Brailovsky, Raul Orvananos, Fabian Estay and top anchors Alejandro Blanco and Andre Marin are set to cover the biggest headlines direct from Brazil.
