The 2022 FIFA World Cup is in full swing in Qatar as we head into the second week of play and the last few games of the group stage.

Week one brought plenty of shocking upsets with Lionel Messi’s top-ranked Argentina squad losing to Saudi Arabia, Japan winning against Germany, a draw between USA and England, and other odds-defying matches. More excitement is almost a guarantee in the final group stage games and beyond, but if you’re looking to join in and watch the World Cup from the U.S., you’ll need to dial in your streaming setup.

Below, we’ve outlined the best ways to watch the world cup online in 2022, including how to get a World Cup live stream for free online using a VPN.

How to Watch the World Cup Online Free With a VPN

The best way to watch the World Cup online for free is to access a free live stream in another country with a virtual private network (VPN) like ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

If you’re unfamiliar, VPNs are browser extensions or apps that “trick” your device into thinking it’s in another region, letting you access websites, streaming services, or different versions of U.S. streaming services (like Netflix) only available in other areas. VPNs are safe, reliable, and easy to use, and the best VPNs aren’t expensive.

To live stream the World Cup for free with a VPN, first sign up for ExpressVPN or NordVPN and add it to your web browser. The two VPNs are very similar (both work seamlessly for getting legal free live streams of the World Cup),though ExpressVPN is slightly faster and Nord VPN has more servers (i.e. more locations you can connect to). Read our full comparison of the two top-rated VPNs here.

Once your VPN is installed, set the location to a location in the U.K. and you’ll be able to watch English-language broadcasts of every World Cup game for free on BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub. Alternatively, you can also set your location to somewhere in Australia and watch every game for free on the country’s SBS streaming platform.

ExpressVPN costs $12.95 a month if you pay month-to-month, or $6.67 a month if you pay for a year upfront. With either plan, you also get a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could watch the whole World Cup and then get your $12.95 back after the event concludes.

Buy ExpressVPN $12.95

NordVPN costs slightly less at $11.99 per month, and it also comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can bring that cost all the way down to $2.99 per month if you opt for a 2-year commitment and pay $80.73 upfront.


Buy NordVPN $11.99

How to Watch the World Cup Online: Live Stream Soccer in the U.S.

If you don’t want to go the VPN route, there are still plenty of options to watch the World Cup online in the U.S. Here are three of the best — some of which even get you free World Cup live streams for certain games.

1. Stream the World Cup on Peacock

NBC’s streaming platform, Peacock, will offer live streams of all 64 World Cup matches. The first 12 matches were available to watch with Peacock’s free subscription tier, but the remaining games require a Premium subscription (which only costs $4.99 per month). However, there is a catch with Peacock: their World Cup live streams are simulstreams of Telemundo Deportes, so the commentary is in Spanish.

Buy Free Trial Peacock

2. Stream the World Cup on fuboTV

A great way to watch the World Cup online in the U.S. (with English commentary) is by getting a live TV streaming service like fuboTV. Fox and FS1 — the two channels with English World Cup coverage in the U.S. — are both included in fuboTV’s extensive channel lineup, so you can watch every game live online.

fuboTV costs $69.99 per month, but starts with a seven-day free trial before you pay. Plus, you get 1000 hours of cloud DVR storage, which is very useful for catching the few World Cup games that happen early in the morning, U.S. time.
