The Socceroos are one nation still in the running but must overcome the UAE and Peru in the play-offs after finishing third behind Japan and Saudi Arabia in their AFC group.

Australia’s Graham Arnold was present at the official World Cup draw in Doha on April 2, where every nation learnt their opponents and the match schedule.

Good to see all games on linear TV!

Thanks for putting up the SBS schedule for the upcoming World Cup.

Good to see that SBS will be having a “World Cup Today Show” every night at 6.30-7.30pm during the whole month of the tournament.

For the group stages posted, the 8.30pm games should rate well. And for that very slim chance that Australia makes it through. then Saturday 20 November will do well for SBS - as its their only family friendly time here in Australia. The remaining two matches are “in the middle of the night” (our time).

No mention of team broadcasting.

SBS usually broadcast from the host country so hopefully we see a reinstatement of that level of coverage with a studio over in Qatar. You’d hope they’d get Martin Tyler exclusively as well as use David Basheer.

I’d like to see who they get to anchor the coverage each match day.

From as early as I can remember in the 80s and 90s SBS have an outstanding job.

Its their bread-and-butter, but I wonder what the coverage is going to be like now that they’ve dispensed with the services of all of their football pundits and hosts

They are the only broadcaster in Australia, and I doubt that no other broadcaster in the world would have Tyler.

Considering there are pre and post-game windows + a daily show built into the coverage schedule, guessing SBS will employ a group of people to work on the tournament for them.

Unless there is a world feed?

Pretty sure he has been exclusive to SBS worldwide the last World Cup or two.

Think the obvious choice for host is Basheer and get in some freelance analysts.

SBS always do a fantastic job with broadcasting the FIFA World Cup, one of the best in the world. This WC should be a cracker but, sadly, I can’t see the Socceroos qualifying.

Wow ok. He is past his best though.

He’s definitely past his past, when the World Cup comes around Tyler will be 77 years old. It’s been painful listening to Tyler commentate on EPL games this season.

Yeah, well past his best.

Wales defeated Ukraine 1-0 in the final European playoff at Cardiff overnight, to qualify for their first World Cup finals in 64 years.

How big is today’s result for SBS. Can’t wait to hear what their coverage plans are.

Any word on hosts or commentators? Will they have a studio in Qatar?

The Socceroos have made it into the World Cup. This is their schedule for their 3 games (times are aedt):

Wednesday, 23 November - 6am: Australia v France
Saturday, 26 November - 9pm: Australia v Tunisia
Thursday, 1 December - 2am: Australia v Denmark

The France game should rate well. The Tunisia match should rate big being at an extremely friendly time for us of Saturday night at 9pm. The Denmark match is on at the awkward time.

This morning’s telecast also gave us a glimpse of the graphics that will be used in the coverage of the tournament proper in November-December.

Really? I thought they were pretty basic gfx.
