2010 FIFA World Cup Schedule: TV Guide for Viewers in America

The 2010 FIFA World Cup kicks off on Friday and for fans around the globe that means a month of the best international football on the planet.

For fans watching the action unfold from America, the beautiful game will be aired in three main ways: On ESPN's network of channels, on ABC, and online.

ESPN will broadcast 44 of the 48 group matches, including 10 on ESPN 2. All of the matches they show on TV will also be available for free on ESPN3.com.

The other four group matches—including England against the USA—will be shown exclusively on ABC.

Coverage for all of the matches starts 30 minutes before kickoff, with the exception of America's first game on Saturday, which begins one hour before game time.

All of the matches in the group stages start at either 7:30 a.m. EST, 10 a.m., or 2:30 p.m. When it comes to the final game of each group, the schedules overlap and both games in the group kick off at the same time, either 10 a.m. or 2:30 p.m.

Here's the full schedule of group games being aired in America.
