How to Watch FIFA with a VPN

So you want to watch the FIFA World Cup? Congratulations! You are in the right place. Now, let’s dive into how to do so safely and legally.

The Basics

For starters, you will need a VPN. A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, creates a secure, private connection between your computer and a remote server located somewhere else on the Internet. Because VPNs operate at the network level, they can prevent third parties from tapping into your communications and data while you are connected to their servers. And did I mention, they’re also highly secure? You can learn more about how VPNs work and why they are so popular here.


If you’re reading this, I assume you’re either a fan of soccer (or futbol, as it’s called in Spanish), or you’re at least curious about the world’s biggest sporting event. For those in the latter group, the answer is probably yes, you want to see the best of the best play. And for those in the former group, you either already follow the games or you want to follow them more closely as they happen.

Because the FIFA World Cup is such a large and prestigious event, you will undoubtedly run across many articles and blog posts on how to follow the games. But what if you’re in Brazil and you’re looking for a North American TV station to follow the events you love so much? You won’t find many options, as most of the American TV stations choose not to broadcast the games during the World Cup due to rights restrictions. Thankfully, this is where VPNs come in. With a VPN, you can change your IP address to whatever country you choose and access the content you need to follow the World Cup live.

Choosing Your Country

Just like when you browse the web, you will need to choose which country you want to connect to when you use a VPN. You have four options here: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and most importantly, Brazil. Did I mention which one you want to choose depends on where you are? Let’s say you’re in the UK and you want to access content hosted in the US. You should choose the US, as this is the only country that will give you access to all content regardless of where it is hosted.

How To Watch FIFA 24/7

Once you’ve chosen your country, you can follow the rest of the steps to set up your VPN and connect to the FIFA World Cup. Your VPN provider will need to verify your country of origin by submitting your country’s ID to them. After this initial step, you will be able to change your IP address to that of your country of choice and begin following the games as much as you want. If you need further assistance, contact your provider’s customer support staff, as they will be able to help you throughout the setup process. And don’t forget – the more you use a VPN, the better it becomes at helping you find content from everywhere on the Internet, regardless of where it is hosted. So, in other words, the more you use it, the more it can help you stay ahead of the game.

Where To Watch The FIFA World Cup?

So you want to watch the FIFA World Cup? Great! But where? And how much will it cost you to do so? Let’s dive into that now.

First, where do you want to watch the games? There are many options here, from laptops to big-screen TV sets, as long as you have a strong internet connection. But there is one major advantage to watching the FIFA World Cup on mobile devices: you can take the game with you and watch it on the go. And this is important, as being able to watch the games on the move makes following the event much easier for fans and gamers. Not to mention, you can use VPNs to ensure you’re always protected whenever you are online. So, if you’re a fan who likes to follow the games on the go, or you just want to be aware of what’s happening even when you’re not in front of a TV set, then handheld devices might be the way to go. And if money is no object to you, then you should definitely consider investing in a mobile device and following the games this way. (I know many gamers who follow the FIFA World Cup on their mobile devices simply because it’s the only way they can play their favorite games while on the go. So this is a definite option for them.)

How Much Does It Cost To Follow The FIFA World Cup?

The cost to follow the FIFA World Cup varies from country to country. The following prices are accurate as of June 2019 and were obtained from the country’s official website. (All prices are in U.S. dollars.)

  • Costa Rica
  • Ecuador
  • El Salvador
  • Guatemala
  • Honduras
  • Mexico
  • Nicaragua
  • Panama
  • Uruguay
  • Venezuela

These prices do not include VAT (value-added tax) that may be added to your food and other goods in some countries. You will also need to purchase a VPN to be able to follow the event from anywhere in the world. If you do not have a VPN, the best option is to use a free one that fits your needs. (I recommend using the free VPN service provided by ExpressVPN, as they have a no-logs policy, which ensures you can use their service with total confidence.)

The Upsides & Downsides

The advantages of using a VPN to watch the FIFA World Cup far outweigh the disadvantages, as you will see. First, and most importantly, if you have a VPN and you’re connected to a server located in the UK (or another country that has similar broadcasting rights to that of the UK), you will be able to access all of the content the FIFA World Cup has to offer, even if you are not in the UK. This is because the UK authorities did not revoke the broadcast rights for the World Cup from the BBC, which is probably the best TV station in the world, even when the event is not on. Second, and also most importantly, using a VPN keeps you secure online – even if you are using public Wi-Fi networks at coffee shops and other places, as long as you are connected to a VPN, your personal information and communications remain private. (For example, if you are in Cuba and you want to watch the World Cup, but public Wi-Fi is restricted in that country, then you will not be able to access the content you need to follow the games. So you will have to find a place where you can connect to a VPN, or look for alternative ways to follow the event, such as using a mobile device or other online platforms.) Third, and also most importantly, using a VPN means you can watch the FIFA World Cup whenever and wherever you want; no restrictions! Finally, and perhaps most importantly, using a VPN can help you keep ahead of the game. In most cases, VPNs give users the ability to seek out and access content that is geo-blocked, which cannot be found easily on their own. So, in other words, the more you use a VPN, the more it can help you stay ahead of the game.
