The FIFA World Cup 2014 starts today. It will be the biggest football carnival and the next one month, promises to grip everyone who is remotely connected to the game in the football fever. Like someone said, FIFA World Cup for us Indians is a tournament where although our country does not participate, our team definitely does. While you get your late night snacks and beers in stock for the big kick off, it is important to know the schedule of when each match will happen. You can catch the scores of the matches as they happen live by using Google Now, but to make sure you do not miss out any games, you sure would rather have the matches as a part of your calendar.
If you are using a Google Calendar, adding the matches as a part of your calendar is extremely simple. To do this, just follow the steps below and you will have the entire set of matches on the calendar within two minutes.
Login to your Gmail account and using the web apps icon on the top of the window go to the calendar of your Google account. As an alternate, you can directly go to this link to access your Calendar.
Once you are in the Calendar web app, see towards the left of your screen and you will find several options such as monthly view, ‘My Calendars’ and ‘Others Calendars’. You will have to select ‘Other Calendars’.
In the drop down, select ‘Add by URL’ option and in the field that has opened paste the following URL:
That’s it, you will immediately see the matches will be updated in your calendar which you can cross check on the web itself. The best thing about the feature is that as the tournament progresses the latest updates will be shown in your calendars without you having to intervene at all. Now you can access the Calendar app on your mobile device and once you have sync’d it, the changes will be reflected in the app too.
