Fans supportive of PA's World Cup screening

If you think you have to break the bank to catch this year's World Cup on Pay TV, fret not. 

Thirty Community Clubs island-wide will be screening the 64 matches for free. 

Fans 938LIVE spoke to say they might catch the football matches after all, since the matches will be screened live, and for free at the Community Clubs, or CCs. 

England fans Fabian Low and Edmund Ho say they're happy that there's at least the option of catching the matches at the CCs. 

"Definitely lah, if there's a CC near my house, why not?"

"It's a good thing, it's a community thing. It really bonds people together. And it's free, what's better than free, right?"

Jackie Chen, who is a fan of the German team, says the experience of watching it with a big crowd can be fun. 

"You get that atmosphere - that live game atmosphere where everybody is cheering for the team they support and discussing future games. It would be fun also, I feel."

The matches will be aired in the wee hours of the night, 

and these fans have some pretty good ideas on surviving the nights. 

Brazil Fan Muhammad Ershah tells us what's going into his "survival kit". 

"I'll probably include chips, snacks, Redbull or Coffee so that I can survive throughout the whole match if not the match will be watching me instead."

Fan of Holland, Tan Hwee Heng reminds all to mind their sleeping plans, to survive the month-long football season.

"I'll advise people to sleep early and wake up early rather than don't sleep and try to endure the match. And bring a lot of liang cha (herbal tea)."
