Watch World Cup 2010 Online: Sites and Social Media

By Jamie Pert - Jun 11, 2010

Within the last hour the South Africa World Cup 2010 opening ceremony has kicked off, now with the first match just 1 hour away people are eagerly trying to find out what sites will allow you to watch live streams of all of the games.

If you would like to see the hosts in action in the first game of the 2010 World Cup (South Africa vs. Mexico) you will be pleased to hear that ITV are streaming the game live on their site, coverage starts at 2.30pm GMT.

The other game taking place today is Uruguay vs. France, this game kicks off at 7.30pm, if you check out this link nearer the time you can watch live video and live text commentary.

When the last World Cup took place Twitter was still in it’s very early stages, therefore it will be interesting to see just how Twitter copes with the huge traffic that the competition will cause. Twitter have set up their very own World Cup Twitter page, here you can see a continuous feed of top World Cup tweets.

Facebook has also posted their own Guide to the World Cup, here you can find links to build your own World Cup Dream Team (click here), support the World Cup 1GOAL charity (here). Perhaps the most impressive link is “Goal! The Facebook Guide to the World’s Biggest Sporting Event” here you can find lots of links to sites which are streaming the game live (however most of these are foreign links, except ITV).

Also worth checking out is the official FIFA website, here you can see all of the relevant information regarding the upcoming games, including a countdown timer, squads, results etc.
