During the knockout stage of the tournament the split of games between the two broadcasters will depend on England?s progression through the tournament. In all scenarios, the BBC will take first pick of the ?round of 16? and ?quarter final? matches. If England reach the semi final, the game will be shown live by both ITV and the BBC. Both ITV and the BBC will show the World Cup final live.

The BBC and ITV will also broadcast their respective live games on their own websites.

Niall Sloane, ITV?s Controller of Sport said: ?We?re delighted that ITV will kick off coverage of this summer?s World Cup and that England?s two opening games will be shown live on ITV1 in peak time. There is no bigger event on UK television or online than the World Cup and ITV will be at the heart of the action from the first kick through to the final whistle.?

Philip Bernie, BBC Head of TV Sport said: “The BBC are very happy with how the TV split of matches for the World cup has been resolved. The BBC has some of the most appetising of the Group fixtures, and will be showing live every England match from their final Group game onwards, so we hope to be with them for a long and successful campaign. The BBC will aim again to capture the very best of the biggest event of the year across all its outlets, on TV, on radio and online.”
