Text alerts for Sport Relief

If you want to stay ahead of the game this summer, sign up to receive BBC Sport World Cup text alerts in aid of Sport Relief.

Each day text messages will be sent to your mobile phone containing news and views from the BBC Sport team.

Approximately three messages per day will be sent, including opinions on the day's events from your favourite BBC Pundits and a results round-up.

Each message you receive after registration will cost you 20p, and all profit, a minimum of 7p, after tax, operator and handling charges, will be donated to Sport Relief.

You can stop the service at any time. If you subscribe for the whole service the approximate cost will be 15, with at least 5.25 going to Sport Relief.

You can subscribe or unsubscribe at any point before or during the tournament. You do not need to subscribe for the full duration of the World Cup.

The service is available to most mobile phone users but unfortunately not customers of T-Mobile and Virgin.
