The Fédération Internationale de Football Association, better known as FIFA, has announced a free football streaming service called FIFA+. Available on web and mobile, this streaming service will stream content in English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish. FIFA said it would have more languages in the future.
The FIFA+ app allows users to stream over 40,000 live matches per year. This includes 11,000 women’s matches and 29,000 men’s matches. In total, matches from 100 member associations from six confederations will be available to stream via the app. The edge reports that fans can currently stream matches from leagues like 3F Superliga, Mongolian 2nd League and Nepal Women’s Football League.
The main purpose of this service is to provide a way for football fans to stream matches even in the minor leagues. These leagues don’t usually get global attention, so it’s a good way to expand their reach. According to FIFA, 1,400 live matches will be streamed on the app in the first month.
FIFA+ will feature documentaries and films about big names in football like Dani Alves and Ronaldinho
The FIFA+ app will also feature original content at launch, including a six-part documentary about Brazilian soccer star Dani Alves. The platform will also air a five-part documentary series covering interviews with football greats such as Carli Lloyd, Wendie Renard and several others.
Fans can also access videos from the archive, including full World Cup matches or brief highlights. Individual compilations of player goals and assists are also available.
The service is completely free at the moment, although it is ad-supported. However, the structure could change over time. “We’re going to expand strategically – so we’re going to potentially get into the game, the social community and potentially the subscription depending on where it’s going and where the industry disruption is heading,” the FIFA manager said. +Charlotte Burr.

“This project represents a cultural shift in the way different types of football fans want to connect and explore the global game and has been a fundamental part of my Vision 2020-2023,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino.
