USA Football's "Team USA vs. The World" game will be televised LIVE by NFL Network and will be available to football fans outside the United States in high definition quality through an NFL Game Pass subscription.
Fans eager to cheer on the World team - featuring players and coaches from American Samoa, Australia, Bahamas, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway and Sweden - can do so by visiting www.NFL.com/GamePass.
Selecting the option of a subscription covering the January 30 game date will allow access to online streaming and all the action when the game kicks off at 12pm local time. Subscribers will also have access to the AFC and NFC Pro Bowl practices, which take place at Lockhart Stadium from 9am, in addition to regular NFL Network programming.
"There will be about 50 friends and relatives cramming into my house back in Australia to watch the game," said World team defensive tackle JESSE WILLIAMS. Currently playing football at Arizona Western junior college, Williams was among five World team players interviewed by NFL Network on Thursday during production meetings to prepare for the broadcast.
"I've been watching the NFL Network in my room and there have been loads of adverts for our game every day," said fullback JAMES SIFAKIS. "It is pretty cool to see those promos as part of the Pro Bowl previews and then realize that is the game we're going to be playing in."
RICH EISEN, DEION SANDERS and SCOTT KENNEDY will deliver game commentary. Sideline reporter STACEY DALES will contribute on-field insight. Viewers in the United States can watch the game live on the NFL Network.
JAN JENMERT, head coach of Sweden's national American football team, is the head coach of the 45-man World roster, which is selected from eight countries on four continents.
