The 2018 FIFA World Cup  goes on.The greatest soccer players on the planet take center stage in Russia.

The tournament returns to Europe for the first time since it was held in Germany in 2006, and there’s no shortage of storylines. Is this the year that Lionel Messi finally wins the only major trophy missing in his list of career achievements?

It’s been a 32-year drought for Argentina. Like Messi, who was not born the last time the Albiceleste lifted the World Cup trophy, the window may be closing for Cristiano Ronaldo, who will try to power Portugal, the 2016 Euro winners, to another title.

What about Neymar, who is recovering from a broken foot? Will he be fit to lead a promising Brazil team to its sixth World Cup title?

The hosts got the party started in a scintillating version dismantling  Saudi Arabia 5-0, and on July 15 a new world champion will be crowned.

Supersport and Startimes  have the TV rights for this edition of the World Cup, which means games will air all the Sports channels of the respectives TVs.

Local free to air channel NTV in partnership with Kwese Sports will also air 32 selected world Cup matches.
