If you want to watch the matches then there are various websites to watch the FIFA World Cup event live on the internet.

And, if you want to know about the schedule of your favorite soccer team then you could do it easily in Google calendar. You can subscribe to your favorite team’s schedule in a new calendar and set up reminders so that you don’t miss a match.

Setting Up Reminders

Setting up reminders is a bit tricky. You’ll have to copy each event (football match) to your calendar and then edit event details to set reminders.

Once I copied the above event to my calendar, I could edit event details and add reminders. I wasn’t able to find a way out of doing it at once for all the events in the series, or copying the entire calendar to one of my calendars. If you know of such a method, do share it in the comments.
