FIFA Plus offers 40,000 free live games per year and much more

Soccer global governing body FIFA has launched a streaming service that offers more than 40,000 free matches and much more. Get your streaming game on!

If you are a soccer fan, you are not alone, as there are probably billions of you worldwide. To make it easier for you to access soccer matches, FIFA has launched a free streaming service named FIFA Plus. The content platform gives you access to live matches, archived videos, original content, etc.

In its press release, FIFA says, “FIFA is excited to announce the launch of FIFA+, a world-class digital platform created to connect football fans across the globe more deeply with the game they love, for free.

“Launching today, FIFA+ will provide access to live football matches from every corner of the world, interactive games, news, tournament information, ground-breaking, unrivalled video content delivering truly global storytelling around the men’s and women’s game and much more. FIFA is the first sports federation ever to offer such an extensive streaming and content experience to its fans.”

The content can be streamed in a browser and on mobile devices and is available globally. You will get videos in five languages; English, French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish. FIFA will add more languages.

The potential of FIFA Plus is massive as it promises over 40,000 live matches in a year. The scope is also mind-boggling as there will be matches from 100 member associations from all six confederations. This means you can watch 29,000 men’s games and 11,000 women’s. You will also get content from not-so-popular competitions. For example, you may be able to watch matches from the Philippines league or Mongolian.

FIFA Plus will kick off with 1,400 matches per month and ramp up.

The streaming service also offers original content, including exclusive docuseries, talk shows, and shorts. The first batches of original content will feature popular names like Ronaldinho, Dani Alves, Ronaldo Nazário, Romelu Lukaku, Lucy Bronze, Carli Lloyd, etc.

This is in addition to archived content, including every FIFA World Cup match ever recorded for men and women. The soccer governing body says it has more than 2,000 hours of archive content, so you will be able to relive great moments and not-so-great moments in the sport’s history, even back to the 1950s.

“FIFA+ represents the next step in our vision to make football truly global and inclusive, and it underpins FIFA’s core mission of expanding and developing football globally,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino. “This project represents a cultural shift in the way different types of football fans want to connect with and explore the global game and has been a fundamental part of my Vision 2020-2023. It will accelerate the democratisation of football and we are delighted to share it with fans.”

FIFA Plus is ad-supported for now, but nothing says you won’t be charged later. According to Charlotte Burr, head of FIFA Plus, “We’ll be strategically extending — so we will be potentially going into gaming, social community, and potentially subscription depending on where this goes and where the industry disruption heads.”
