7 Ways to Watch the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Singapore for FREE!

Bah, face it – Singtel and Starhub’s charges (around S$112.35) to watch the World Cup in Singapore is insane considering the fact that most countries actually air it for free -_-

3. The Big Screen at Hong Lim Park!

foodpanda partners with the Telok Ayer Hong Lim Green Community Centre to promote racial harmony and social cohesion in Singapore, to broadcast the month-long tournament at Hong Lim Park. Public can look forward to enjoy ‘live’ at least 50 of the 64 soccer matches on big screens, including the opening match on 13th from 12 am to 6 am.

Expecting to host more than 100 persons per live-screening, foodpanda and Telok Ayer Hong Lim Green Community Centre hope to bring the whole of Singapore together to support an international great sporting event with a wonderful screening experience. Throughout the period of the live World Cup tournament screenings, foodpanda will also be gifting $10 discount vouchers to all first-time users which would allow audiences to order an array of late night delights to accompany them through all their important soccer matches.

More details on the screening schedules at Hong Lim Park will be available on foodpanda’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/FoodpandaSingapore by 13th June.

4. One of the Many Many Many Bars in Singapore

There are LOADS of bars in Singapore and many of them will screen the World Cup in the bar for free. Some of these bars (but not exclusive) include: Brewerkz, Harry’s Bar, Prince of Wales, The Penny Black, Muddy Murphy’s & Hollandse Club

5. Try Your Luck at a Neighbourhood Kopitiam

I’m pretty sure that many of the neighbourhood kopitiams around you will air the matches where you can watch it for free!

6. Pray that you can watch it at a 24 Hour McDonald’s

Back in 2010, McDonald’s Singapore screened the live matches of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa at all it’s 24-hour restaurants. Perhaps this year in 2014 it will do the same too? I think that’s what the bf did the last time.

7. Share a Subscription with Friends

Yeah you and a friend (or friends) could always make a pact and sign up for a package together at someone’s designated house. That lucky person will have to be in charge of providing free flow beer, drinks, food and snacks as well as clearing up the mess after each event since the guys (and girls) will be there.

But seriously…

[BONUS!] VPN Subscription

Apparently a *legal* way to watch the FIFA World Cup on your laptop is by using VPN providers such as HideMyAss or IPVanish. Then you can have access to the online channels that air the FIFA World Cup 2014 for free.

  • ITV in the UK
  • BBC in the UK
  • NRK in Norway
  • DR in Denmark
  • ORF in Austria
  • Ceska Televizie in Czech Republic

All these channels have free online live streams, so it is just to connect to one of the VPN servers in any of these nations, and afterwards you can watch the live streams from the World Cup and watch the matches online, for a very good price.
