Australian (SBS) World Cup TV Schedule

Let the boss know that for the next month you might be a bit tired and cranky at work but it will be all worth it if the Socceroos can provide the excitement of their 2006 run.

Should Australia advance out of its challenging group stage with Germany, Ghana and Serbia, the old enemy England could await in the knockout stage. But to watch it Down Under you’ll have a few late nights and some early starts.

Here’s your comprehensive SBS World Cup TV schedule. We’ve got all the dates/times in ET so that you don’t have to figure out the time difference with South Africa.

There’s a few group matches with a 9.30pm kick-off but the Aussies only got 12am and 4.30am starts so it will either be a few beers and midnight snacks or coffee and vegemite toast while cheering on the Socceroos.

It all gets underway on Friday night, June 11 and you won’t have to wait long for Australia’s first match of the tournament. Set the alarm clock – Monday, June 14 at 4.30am … SBS has the call for the Australia v Germany match in Durban.
