Another World Cup first is a feast of football on Thanksgiving Day. FS1 will air two early matches (Switzerland-Cameroon, Uruguay-South Korea) before using the two later games (Portugal vs. Ghana, Brazil vs. Serbia) to transition straight into its NFL coverage. Last year, Fox found great success broadcasting the first MLS playoff game on Thanksgiving ahead of its NFL coverage, and having stars like Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar before whatever boring NFL game is on Thanksgiving Day should increase World Cup TV ratings.

The day after Thanksgiving, known in the U.S. as Black Friday as the biggest shopping day of the year, also presents Fox with a huge ratings opportunity. While many Americans are out shopping that day, many more stay home in a food coma, stuck on the couch with nothing but college football to watch. The USMNT vs. England match could set viewership records for a men’s World Cup in the U.S. (though likely not overtake the overall record, which belongs to the 2015 Women’s World Cup final).
Working against big TV ratings in the U.S. will be those who refuse to watch the tournament to boycott the fact Qatar is hosting. In addition to countless allegations of corruption in the voting process to award the tournament to Qatar, the nation has been accused of using what amounts to modern-day slavery to build its stadiums. Additionally, the Muslim nation outlaws homosexuality, punishable by death in some cases, leading many to decry holding the world’s greatest sporting event in a nation that does not accept all humans.


Other big matches to watch in the group stage include Germany vs. Spain (2 p.m. ET Sunday, Nov. 27, FS1), Portugal vs. Uruguay (2 p.m. ET Monday, Nov. 28, Fox), Belgium vs. Croatia (10 a.m. ET Thursday, Dec. 1, Fox) and the matches for our Concacaf neighbors Mexico and Canada.
