How to watch the World Cup at home

  1. meWATCH
  2. StarHub
  3. Singtel
  4. Catch selected matches on Channel 5 (for free!)
  5. Find (or become) a friend who has taken up any one of these options

Options 1 to 3 offer essentially the identical package: meWATCH, Starhub or Singtel will grant you access to all 64 World Cup games at $118. It’s very much the bougie option, especially since the early bird promotion for these deals are over. 

Option 4 is more than decent for casual World Cup fans since you get to watch some of the most high-profile games, including the semi-finals and the final. Most importantly, it’s free.

A comment on Option 5: If you’re not going to be found yelling like a madman with hundreds of fellow fans at the CC, then look to hang out with a friend in the comfort of the home as a guest or host.

Get ready to prepare snacks and drinks to be shared over the game since whatever option you choose, there’s an opportunity to bless or befriend…

Building bridges in the lead-up to Christmas

The World Cup is always a time for shared passion, joy and community.

While ethical concerns such as corruption, human rights and the poor timing of the winter tournament has cast a shadow over some of that, the chance to deepen friendships and familial ties nevertheless remains.

Plus there has never been a World Cup leading up to Christmas. For better or for worse, it’s a unique opportunity.

So in the Christmas spirit of generosity and fellowship, why not open up your home for a World Cup night or two with friends new and old?

The Group Stage games (November to December 3) have matches that are played out at 6pm and 9pm, a timing which would be perfect for a pre-game meal together. 

Free games wise, there are nine such opportunities available to you as long as you can have access to Channel 5 on TV.

In total, there are 64 great chances to build a connection that will allow for future gospel opportunities and maybe even deeper conversations on the day!
