Saturday 15 June - Sunday 30 June
If England or the Republic of Ireland progress to the Round of 16 knockout stage of the tournament, both broadcasters will screen each of their matches live, with the BBC having first choice of the remaining games. If they do not, live coverage of the eight matches in this stage will be split, with the BBC retaining first choice of game.

In the quarter finals of the tournament, with eight teams remaining, the pattern of live coverage is reversed with ITV having first choice of match outside of shared live coverage if England or the Republic of Ireland qualify. If England and/or the Republic of Ireland qualify for the semi-finals, both broadcasters would screen both matches live. If neither team qualifies, a toss of a coin would decide which broadcaster has first choice of semi-finals, which would be broadcast live.

At Round of 16, quarter-final and semi-final stages, in addition to screening live coverage of any England and/or the Republic of Ireland games, ITV would have first-repeat, same-day transmission of those matches. Both broadcasters may show extensive highlights of World Cup fixtures on a daily basis.

ITV and the BBC will screen the World Cup Final live on Sunday 30 June.
