The 2010 World Cup kicked off in South Africa on June 11. Did you know that South Africa is 6 hours ahead of the East Coast and 9 hours ahead of the West Coast? That makes for some early morning start times for us here in the U.S.! Don’t sleep in and miss your favorite team’s match—go to the SmartZone Calendar/World Cup Calendar Gallery and subscribe to your team’s schedule. (For a quick step-by-step guide on how to add a Sports Calendar to SmartZone, click here.)

Similar to the other sports calendars (MLB, NHL, NBA), SmartZone will tell you who your favorite team is playing, at what time, and on what channel the game will air. If you can’t get enough World Cup, check out our dedicated World Cup site for all the information you could want. Go USA!

P.S. Stay tuned, new SmartZone enhancements begin rolling out the next couple weeks. I’ll be back with more updates soon. Keep your feedback coming.
