Well there’s a chance that you can catch them on new network ESPN 3D in all three dimensions of the physical world. As announced on ESPN SportsCenter today and a press release from ESPN:
ESPN 3D will showcase a minimum of 85 live sporting events during its first year, beginning June 11 with the first 2010 FIFA World Cup match, featuring South Africa versus Mexico, ESPN and ABC Sports president George Bodenheimer announced.
Other events to be produced in 3-D include the 2011 BCS National Championship Game, college basketball and football contests, up to 25 World Cup matches and the Summer X Games. Additional events will be announced at a later date.
Apparently 3D television sets and special 3D glasses will be required to view ESPN 3D’s broadcasts.
While waiting for ESPN 3D and the World Cup, check out the English Premier League on ESPN2 during the month of January. Here’s the schedule.
