From Sunday May 11 AFP will start moving daily news advisories on the football World Cup which starts in Brazil on June 12.
AFP will provide intensive text, picture, graphics and video coverage of the buildup to the tournament and each game when it starts.
The first advisories will concentrate on the first round groups, starting with Group A on May 11.
We will move profiles on each country in the groups, the team coach and a key player.
In the four-week buildup, AFP bureaux around the world will be supplying angled stories, updated profiles and factfiles on team preparations, Brazil's race to be ready on time and interviews with key figures.
There will also be stories on the football business and the global impact of the tournament.
