On June 14, the biggest sporting festival on the planet will kick off in Russia. Thirty two teams will gather for a month-long festival of football.
Hosts Russia will launch the tournament on Thursday at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. There is only one game that day.
There will be up to four matches broadcast on any given day. So get ready to make those excuses from work and home to catch all the action.
For some matches you might need to wriggle out of work early and on other days, chances are that you will make it to office sleepy-eyed.
To help you plan your viewing schedule, CNBCTV18.com has put together a World Cup calendar stuffed with all the matches and the kickoff times.
