In advance of the 2022 World Cup, South America’s upcoming qualifying games will be on fuboTV in the United States.
The live-TV service acts as a hub for soccer, providing coverage for games throughout the world. As the company already streamed the prior sets of games, they’ve now added games from September 2, 5 and 9 to their schedule.
Over those three matchdays, fuboTV will have coverage of 14 games from across the continent, highlighted by Brazil hosting Argentina.
fuboTV describes itself as the premier streaming location for soccer fans. With their coverage of these World Cup qualifiers, it is clear to see why.
The company caters to an international audience. Therefore, they broadcast games in multiple languages. For the English-language audiences, Fubo Sports Network will carry coverage of the 14 games, while fubo Latino will stream the games with Spanish-language commentary and analysis.
The service is available through practically any device, making it fairly easy to access.

CONMEBOL 2022 World Cup Qualifiers
Commonly one of the hotly contested qualifiers in world soccer, the qualification for Qatar 2022 is intense.
While games are also available through pay-per-view, fuboTV provides another outlet to watch the 10 teams compete.
In South America, 10 nations compete for four guaranteed spots at the World Cup. Each team plays a home match and an away match against every other nation in the group. Accordingly, each team plays 18 matches. At the end of all team’s games, the top four teams advance directly to the group stage of the World Cup. The fifth-placed team then enters an international qualifying game to get to the group stage.
In recent years, drama persisted up until the final day. Notably, Lionel Messi’s hat trick against Ecuador on the final matchday bumped Argentina third-position, guaranteeing a spot in Russia.
This season, there are all the makings of as much, if not more drama.
Five teams sit within three points of each other after six matches. Ecuador, Uruguay, Colombia, Paraguay and Chile are fighting for the three to five spots. Brazil is a perfect six wins from six. Argentina sits in second with a three-point cushion over Ecuador.
Matchdays nine, six and 10
The next set of matches kicks off in early September. Officially, these games represent matchdays nine, six and 10. COVID-19 and other forces pushed back these dates. This jumbled up the previous schedule.
