The complete FIFA World Cup 2014 schedule in IST

The World Cup kicks off on 12 June, but technically it will be 13 June in India by then. Brazil being eight hours behind India, most of the matches will be played late at night.

There are three major slots for the games: 2130, 0030 and 0330 IST, which means you've got to be ready for some late night football — keep that nachos and dips stacked up and if you're one for coffee, then brewing a cup at around 7 PM should really help you stay awake!

Midway through the tournament, there are lots of games at 0130 also and a handful at 0630.

The prime-time 2130 slot in India won't see too many big games, but cancel dinner plans for 16 and 24 June, when Germany take on Portugal and Italy vs Uruguay respectively.

Spain vs Netherlands on 14 June, Uruguay vs England on 20 June are both at half-past midnight.

Here's the full schedule in IST:
