Now that the Group stage of the Football World Cup is done and dusted, we have a day’s break from the action. The next set of matches are set to begin on Saturday. Here are the FIFA World Cup 2018 Knockout stage match timings in India.
We decided to make a table about the fixtures, because it will be easier to read, than FIFA’s official chart.

You can print out this table of FIFA World Cup 2018 Knockout stage match timings in India, or save it to your computer as a text file too.
Do note that there are only 2 matches played everyday, and you will be able to watch both of them because the first match of the day starts at 19:30, while the second one starts at 23:30.
Even if the first match ends up in extra time (no goals during 90 minutes), or even leads to a penalty shootout, it should be still be over before the second match starts.
You can watch all the matches live on Sony LIV on your PC, Android phone or tablet, or on your iPhone or iPad, if you buy the premium subscription which is available in 2 packages: Regular (annual plan) and a Sports Special (6 months plan). There is a free tier too, but there is an annoying 5-minute delay, so you will miss the live action, and also have to deal with ads.
The Quarter-finals matches take place on 6th and 7th July, while the Semi-finals stage featuring the last 4 teams are scheduled for the 10th and 11th of July, The third-place play-off will be held on the 14th, and the all important World Cup Final will be played on the 15th in the Russian capital, Moscow.
Hope you found our table for the FIFA World Cup 2018 Knockout stage match timings in India, useful.
