World Cup updates on London Tube

John Barnes and TfL's Nigel Holness launch the service on London Undergorund.

ESPN FC is to provide live 2014 World Cup updates to commuters on the London Underground after agreeing a partnership with Transport for London.

News, results and score updates will be displayed on screens above platforms and entrances at more than 140 stations including the entire Central line, Northern line, Bakerloo line and Jubilee line.

The service on the Tube will start on June 12, when hosts Brazil take on Croatia, and will continue until July 14, the day after the final.

Former England international John Barnes said: "This is a great way to keep fans up to date during the big games. There will be plenty of people who have to travel while matches are being played, or may have missed the results from matches the night before -- ESPN FC is ensuring they won't miss out.

"There are often debates about the use of technology in football, but I think everyone will agree this is a good one."

Mike Brown MVO, Managing Director of London Underground and Rail, added: "This is a great way to keep our passengers up to date on the football and we are really pleased to be teaming up with ESPN FC to deliver this.

"It also generates a bit of money to allow us to keep investing in further improvements to the tube network."
