Get the latest 2018 FIFA World Cup updates with Twitter and Astro

Astro Twitter 2018 FIFA World Cup

In another epic collaboration, Astro has partnered Twitter to provide “near-live” football match clips and tournament updates on @stadiumastro. As you know, Astro is the official broadcaster of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia in Malaysia.

Through Stadium Astro, fans can look forward to goal alerts from match of the day, replay of the best goal of the day (from every angle) as well as roundup of the day’s action. There will also be a collection of video clip of the star player of a match.

The collaboration follows a string of other successful partnerships Astro has forged such as EPL, F1, MotoGP, PGA and the Asian Tour, Grand Slam Tennis, and AFC CL and Cup.

In an unprecedented move, Astro announced that it is making available all 64 LIVE World Cup matches accessible to everyone, including non-Astro customers. All viewers need to do is purchase a World Cup Channel Pass for MYR100 if you’re an Astro customer but on a Non-Sports Pack, or MYR120 if you’re not.

Non-Astro customers can watch ALL live matches on Astro GO. If you choose to, you don’t have to watch the entire lot of matches.

You can buy a Match Pass that lets you watch one LIVE match; Group Pass which gives you access to LIVE matches of one selected Group; or Knockout State Pass which lets you watch all matches in the Round of 16, Quarterfinals, Semi-finals, 3rd Place Match and Finals.
