There are six matches on each weekend during the pool stages before the tournament moves into the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final.
Who will be lifting the trophy at Eden Park in six weeks’ time? England are favourites but hosts – and five-times champions – New Zealand cannot be ruled out, while France and Canada are also in the mix. Plus, the race to make the last eight from the pool stages should also be intriguing.

So below we explain how to find a reliable World Cup live stream – you might just need to set your alarms for the early hours depending on the time difference!
