    Coverage of this summer’s World Cup has been agreed by the BBC and ITV, with both terrestrial channels showing the final and the semi-final should England be involved.

    The BBC will broadcast England’s opener against Paraguay on June 10 while ITV have the rights to show the two other group games against Trinidad and Tobago and Sweden on June 15 and 20 respectively.

    The BBC will then have first choice of which last-16 fixture they want to show while ITV will choose the next two, with the rest split evenly between the channels.

    The first pick for quarter-final matches goes to the BBC and ITV will then choose two, with the remaining game for the BBC.

    Should England reach the semi-finals, both channels will broadcast the match live and ITV have exclusive rights to the other semi-final.

    If England are not in the semi-finals, ITV will have first choice on which game to show while the BBC have the other match.

    With the World Cup just over two months away, does anyone know who the people that’ll be bringing it to us at home will be. Basically, anyone know who the BBC and ITV are taking to Germany to cover the matches yet?

    I know Graeme Le Saux’s not going seeing as he quit the BBC last week. Any other news?

    There’s normally at least one big surprise pundit like Ruud Gullit or Johan Cruyff a few years ago

    As long as they’re sending Motty, I’ll be happy.

    Graeme done a ‘2 way’ on ITV Evening News the other day about the new England job, I didn’t catch the first part, but it did leave me wondering if he’s now apart of the ITV Sports team.

    You could be right there as ITV have very few co-commentators actually signed to them; Jim Beglin and David Pleat, plus Andy Townsend perhaps. He could well be the new ITV England co-comm?

    Big Ron Atkinson is going to the World Cup!!!

    But as a studio pundit for UKTV G2, as they too have live broadcast rights this year.

    Other confirmed names for UKTV G2 are Andy Goldstein as host, Neil Cole as reporter and Steve Claridge as pundit.

    I’m looking forward to the World cup this year. I’m Canadian and I’m a huge England fan. It will be nice to have Ashley Cole on the team.

    TSN and Sportsnet over here in Canada will be broadcasting the World Cup.

    Ashley cole is playing for England. There was speculation that he wouldn’t be playing because he got hurt. I heard it somewhere.

    Go! England! Go!

    And finally the ITV World Cup information has been released.

    No mention of Graeme Le Saux though as previously wondered.

    And Steve Rider is fronting the coverage it looks like, along with Jim and Gabby.

    Other notable inclusion are Sam Allardyce, Stuart Pearce and Alan Curbishley as pundits.

    I think Marcel Desailly and Leonardo are pudits for the BBC.

    I’m really looking forwaard to the World Cup but the quality of commntators has dropped dramatically over the last couple of years. BBC used to be excellent but now have Jonathan Pearce and Mark Bright who are dreadful.

    Don’t even get me started on the awful Dryury, Tyldesley and Champion on ITV!

    This is how it seems that Sky Sports News will cover the World Cup:

    World Cup Report, Live from Berlin, daily at 7am, 8am, 12pm, 1pm, 7pm and 10pm

    Presenters in Germany: David Jones and Kelly Dalglish

    With England: Nick Collins and Dan Roan

    With England’s Oppponents: Bryan Swanson

    Roving: Gary Cotterill

    No idea how Sky News will cover it, I would assume they will send Ian Dovaston their Sports News Correspondant, Chris Skudder (always travels with England) and a few others, maybe Greg Milam as he does Europe now and others. Perhaps they will base Sports presenters their, and if England do well, anchors too. I remember hearing in the summer that News 24 didnt have the budget to send their sports presenters over to Germany, but that may have changed in this new News 24 orientated era that we live in.

    Sky Sports News will cover this years World Cup with several 30-minute reports live from Germany throughout the day begining on Wednesday.

    David Jones & Kelly Dalglish will be live in Berlin and will bring us all the latest news and build-up from the tournament with updates at 7am, 8am, 12pm, 1pm, 7pm and 10pm.

    There will be several Sky Sports reporters in Germany including chief football correspondent Nick Collins, who will be with the England team, and also Gary Cotterill.

    For Euro 2004, Sky Sports News had Rob Wotton presenting the shows from Lisbon before Richard Keys and Andy Gray tookover for the knock-out stages.
