How and where to watch the World Cup online?

Further down in the article you can see a list of FIFA World Cup 2022 broadcasters. But, if you just want to find the best solution for how to watch the different matches online, this is what you should do!

Get a VPN subscription which will give you access to the best channels!

A VPN application can be used to change your IP address and to surf encrypted. This is often used when you want to watch live streams on TV channels in other nations, and that is what you can use to access and stream all the matches from the FIFA World Cup online for free. So, get started by buying a VPN subscription to ExpressVPN, the best VPN for unblocking TV channels and streaming sites online.

If you click the button above and sign up for 12 months, you will get three extra months for free as a gift. ExpressVPN has a 30-day full refund policy, and you can use ExpressVPN also to unblock 7-8 different Netflix regions, and so much more.

Once you have the ExpressVPN subscription, this is what you need to do!

  • Connect to a server in England and watch all the FIFA World Cup matches online at BBC iPlayer.
    BBC has confirmed that they will broadcast all the matches online from the tournament. You need to create a free user at the BBC website to access the live streams, and then you have to open your browser again and you can start watching. If you still get some error message watching BBC iPlayer abroad when using ExpressVPN, follow these instructions.
  • Connect to a server in the Netherlands and watch the matches on NOS/NPO.
    The Dutch channel blocks almost all VPN providers, but ExpressVPN can be used to stream the matches broadcasted on the channel. It is free to stream, and it will give you great value! You can find their website at
  • Connect to a server in Germany and watch the matches on ARD/ZDF.

These are the three best options if you want to watch all the matches from the Women’s World Cup 2019 online.

Does this work on Android and iOS systems as well?

If you have followed the instructions and have an ExpressVPN subscription, you can watch the FIFA World Cup also on your tablet or phone. It will require you to install the BBC iPlayer application on your Android or iOS device. If you cannot find it in the Google Play Store or in the Apple Store, you can download it manually and install it manually to your Android device from here.

It is a bit harder to fix it for iOS, but you will need to create a new Apple account and register it with an address in the UK. This is completely free, and it is really easy! Once this is done, go to the settings on your Apple device and log in with your new user and use this to access the Apple Store. You will then have access to the UK Apple Store, and thus you can download the BBC iPlayer and watch the FIFA World Cup online on your iPhone or iPad as well!

FIFA Women’s World Cup 2022 venues

Not everything is clear about which venues will be in use during the FIFA World Cup in 2022. There are some brand new stadiums being built in Qatar currently, and some of them are even built with special cooling structures that should be able to decrease the temperatures at the stadiums with as much as 20 Celsius.

There have been conversations about playing some of the matches in neighboring countries during the tournament, but nothing has been said for sure yet.

More information about the venues will be given later.
