There will also be a special England channel on interactive TV with access to all the games and analysis.

Viewers and listeners also have a chance to reflect on the action and interact with fellow fans and the BBC team in our live World Cup Interactive specials.

On BBC One, presenters Gary Lineker, Ray Stubbs and regulars Alan Hansen and Mark Lawrenson will be joined by a host of football stars to bring you the very best coverage, analysis and chat.

Radio Five Live's June schedule will revolve around the World Cup, with 49 live commentaries making for over 250 hours of coverage.

And this website will be the ultimate destination for fans unable to get to the TV or radio.

Mini Motty will be your desktop companion to make sure you don't miss a thing.

There is also our Fantasy Golden Boot competition to enter.

And if that wasn't enough, there is another treat in store very soon...
