If you are searching for World Cup live streams you are in the right place!

In addition to being aired on television, broadcasters across the globe now provide live online coverage of the World Cup throughout the tournament.

A combined 3.572 billion viewers tuned in to the world football’s ultimate competition in 2018, highlighting its global appeal.

VPN for Live Streaming

Having invested heavily to secure the rights to screen live football, broadcasters are understandably keen to protect their outlay by ensuring the content can only be viewed in certain regions.

The geo-blocking software they use can be extremely frustrating for fans, but using Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology is a great way to circumnavigate this issue.

One of the best VPN services available is ExpressVPN, which the Football Today team have used for several years now.

ExpressVPN is cross-platform, which means that in addition to using it on your computer, you can use it on your phone while on the move, or configure your router to give you privacy via VPN across your entire home or office network.

ExpressVPN offers three months free when you sign up, at just over $8/month, and offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee.
