Egypt’s Contribution to World Cup 2006

Among referees of the soccer World Cup 2006 is Egyptian referee Essam Abd el Fatah. He is the third at the front row.

Here is a link to the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany- match schedule. Next Friday is the grand opening. I have no idea what is the tradition in the US regarding airing the matches. I am realizing that this is my first World Cup in the U.S. I heard the situation is not so good in Egypt. Matches will not be aired because of a satellite company called ART is monopolizing the matches and demands something between $100-200 for seeing them on TV.

You can see some games on ABC and the rest on ESPN here. ABC is freely available, but ESPN requires a subscription. Check out this link for the complete US television schedule:

The problem is most games will be on during the day, while most of us are at work!
