ESPN2 and ESPN Classic to reair all 64 World Cup matches

By Ryan Berenz

The first live match of the World Cup hasn’t aired yet, and we’re already talking about reruns! Since a lot of the matches air live in the mornings and afternoons, ESPN2 and ESPN Classic will reair matches in the evenings. And ESPN3.com will archive matches available for viewing on demand. Here’s the complete release from ESPN:

166 Hours of 2010 FIFA World Cup Match Re-airs on ESPN Classic and ESPN2

All 64 Matches to be Archived on ESPN3.com and Available for Replay Through End of Year

espn_worldcupESPN Classic and ESPN2 will combine to re-air all 64 matches of the 2010 FIFA World Cup beginning Friday, June 11, through Monday, July 12. Each match day, generally between 6 p.m. and 12 a.m. ET, ESPN Classic will present all the matches played earlier in the day on ESPN/ESPN2, totaling 113.5 hours.  ESPN2 will also re-air the best match of the day on select nights throughout the tournament, dedicating 53 hours to match re-airs during the month.

  1. Brazil Vs. Portugal was one of the boring matches of this year’s World Cup, but Spain Vs. Chile was the one which I liked, Also I would like to share a website where people who can’t see live matches on their home can watch live broadcast. http://bit.ly/dp6NMl
