Fans of the U.S. Men’s National Team can finally mark down in their calendars where they can watch the team at the 2014 World Cup.

ESPN announced on Monday that they will televise all three of the U.S. Men’s National Team’s group stage matches on their main channel, ESPN, along with 40 other matches on that channel and another 11 games shown on ESPN2. ABC will televise 10 games during the World Cup, including the World Cup final at the Maracana on July 12 at 2:30 p.m.

The USMNT opens its World Cup campaign on June 16 at 5:30 p.m. against Ghana in Natal, followed by a matchup with Portugal on June 22 at 5:30 p.m. in Manaus, and the U.S. finishes against Germany on June 26 at 11:30 a.m. in Recife.

The 2014 World Cup begins on June 12 with Brazil hosting Croatia in Sao Paulo at 3:30 p.m. All ESPN and ESPN2 matches are also available to watch online at WatchESPN and the ABC matches will be available on Watch ABC.
