BL is pleased to once again be providing the scorebug for this year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia. TSN has the rights this year for the Canadian broadcasts of games beginning June 14th. Although the broadcast rights have changed over the years with different permutations of CBC, TSN and Sportsnet owning/sharing them, this will be the 5th FIFA World Cup in a row BL has provided the scorebug.
From the 2002 2-0 Brazil win over Germany in Yokohama, Japan in 2002 to 2014’s dominant performance by Germany to take the final game 1-0 against Argentina in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, BL has been there to provide viewers with the crucial scoring information counting down all 64 games for each tournament.
Community will be publishing all the news and scores from the world cup. This data will be made available for all either by mapping to community from your Chameleon instance or by using BLADE (Chameleon’s RESTful api) on the following links:
We’re all looking forward to watching this year’s edition of the greatest show in sports. Good luck to TSN on its broadcast of all 64 games.
