Hi everyone,

I am working for Camp America in Alaska throughout this years world cup and I will be devastated to miss all of England's matches.

Does anyone know if there are any places that will show the tournament in Anchorage, Alaska (well Cooper Landing to be exact)?

Maybe just have to get in with some soccer fans and watch it at their house haha?!

Cheers people.

ABC (American Broadcasting System) will be showing all the US games (right now the US is scheduled to play the Czech Republic, Italy and Ghana)--and hopefully, we'll successfully move on out of the 1st round like we did in Korea in 2002 (We were in the Korea side of the Japan/Korea World Cup draw--and made it as far as the quarterfinals where we lost to Germany--who finished second).

My understanding is that the mexican channels that broadcast in the US will be televising all of the Mexican games. Mexico is scheduled to face Iran, Angola, and Portugal.

I believe that ABC is actually planning to televise ALL of the games but I don't know for sure. We'll know more as the games approach.

My mistake. I thought ABC was going to televise these, but I see where ESPN has just announced that they are going to televise all the games on either ESPN or ESPN2 this summer.
