Logo_200 All 64 matches of this summer's World Cup from South Africa will be broadcast live on Sirius XM satellite radio.

The broadcasts will be produced by ESPN Radio but will be available on Sirius XM nationwide. When more than one match is being played at the same time, Sirius XM will devote additional channels to the World Cup, making every play available in real time.

In addition to live play-by-play, Sirius XM will offer analysis throughout the tournament on special World Cup editions of "The Football Show" featuring Italian soccer legend Giorgio Chinaglia.
