SBS to broadcast multilingual coverage for World Cup

SBS Radio will broadcast all 64 matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, live and free via the official FIFA World Cup and SBS Radio apps.

Matches will be broadcast in up to three languages simultaneously – English and in languages of competing teams.

SBS Radio’s English coverage will feature expert analysis by former Matildas striker Kate Gill, former Socceroo goalkeeper Clint Bolton and current Melbourne City FC defender Scott Jamieson.

“The FIFA World Cup is the absolute pinnacle of football, a sport that truly unites Australia’s diverse communities. We know Aussies love to get behind our sporting heroes and are confident they will join us in supporting the Socceroos, and of course their other national teams as they take on the best in the world in Russia next month,” SBS Director of Sport, Ken Shipp said.

“SBS is deeply passionate about football, believing its universal appeal can break down barriers without language. In our 30th year broadcasting the FIFA World Cup, Australians can again turn to SBS’s trusted coverage and analysis of the tournament on television, radio, and digital this June and July.”

Throughout the tournament, SBS Radio will broadcast in at least 13 languages, including Arabic, Korean, French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese, more than any other World Cup broadcaster.

SBS Radio’s multilingual coverage is produced in partnership with the best sports media from around the world.
