In a world of dozens of streaming services, you need a unique hook to stand out.

FIFA have hit upon an ingenious solution - how about a streaming service where you can watch the greatest moments in World Cup history, entirely for free?

FIFA+ will be the home of thousands of hours of content, with everything from full matches to original content on the service.

Offerings are pretty slim for Irish fans at launch, with only a few highlight videos available on the site (no Italia 90, really?!) but more content will be added to the site in the coming months.

At time of writing, Irish fans can watch our clips from our match-ups against Germany and Spain in the 2002 World Cup and Northern Irish fans can check out their battles against France and Austria at the 1982 tournament.

A source from FIFA told the Hollywood Reporter the service will act as a companion to this year's World Cup finals in Qatar.

Live games will also be streamed on the service, which is ad-supported.

While the likes of the Premier League or La Liga won't be streamed on the service owing to existing rights agreements, live games from countries such as Denmark, Poland, Mexico, and Angola will be shown.

“Our responsibility is to develop the game, so we’ve been looking at the competitions that need development,” said FIFA’s Dave Roberts, adding that the association had been talking to countries in Aruba and Brunei to stream their semi-professional and amateur leagues, and were also looking to fund games where there aren't cameras present.

“We can give them that added boost of providing a global audience," he added.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino said "FIFA+ underpins FIFA’s core mission of expanding and developing football globally” and will “accelerate the democratisation” of the sport.

FIFA’s director of strategy and corporate development Charlotte Burr, told The Hollywood Reporter that the organisation want the streaming service to become the “undisputed destination of football content.”

“We will be evolving continually to a point when we get to the World Cup, so at that point, we really will be able to showcase what FIFA+ is about,” she said.

The streaming service plans to attract 200 million unique users by the end of 2022, and with the breadth and depth of clips on display, it shouldn't be too hard to make up that number.

Among the original content on the streaming service is a documentary about Brazillian legend Ronaldinho, and profiles on American icon Brandi Chastain and Aussie superstar Sam Kerr.

A documentary entitled 'After Diego' explores how Argentina reacted and came to terms with the loss of Diego Maradona in November 2020.

Official FIFA documentaries about various World Cup tournaments are also on the service, including a documentary about the very first World Cup held all the way back in 1930.

While we haven't seen any footage of Packie Bonner on the site as of yet, there is still an incredible amount of content on the site, making it a treasure trove for fans of the beautiful game.
