The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Football fans will be able to see highlights of all the games from the forthcoming World Cup over the Internet for the first time in the tournament's history.

The video highlights (around four minutes long) will be available two to three hours after the final match of the day, and make up one portion of FIFAworldcup.com's premium subscription service, which costs $19.95. Voiceover commentary in six languages (English, French, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and German) will be available to help fans make sense of the action.

Premier clubs have started offering live feeds of matches online this season. Although the arrangements for the World Cup do not go as far as this they are a step in the right direction.

The deal to show the main incidents of World Cup matches online comes after an agreement between German media group KirchSport, Yahoo! and FIFA, the sport's governing body.

World Cup 2002 takes place between 31 May and 30 June in Japan and South Korea. ®
