Football fans in Nicaragua are part of an emerging breed. In this Central American nation, the main spectator sports have traditionally been baseball and boxing, but the beautiful game of fútbol has been making inroads in recent years thanks to regional influence from neighboring nations such as Costa Rica, El Salvador and Honduras.

Nicaragua has yet to qualify for the FIFA World Cup or FIFA Women’s World Cup. But you can still watch all the action.

Television Channels Broadcasting the Women’s World Cup 2023 in Nicaragua

Grupo Ratensa and Alba visión is a media conglomerate operating a few over-the-air (OTA) frequencies across Central America. This company, which operates two national TV stations and one regional channel, has opted to make Canal 2 and Canal 10 the home of the tournament in Nicaragua.

Canal 10 has been broadcasting across Nicaragua since 1997; it is an OTA channel that you can tune into with an analog SDTV antenna. As one of the most popular TV stations in Nicaragua, Canal 10 is carried by all cable and satellite providers duly registered with CANITEL, the national organization of telecommunications carriers in the country. Canal 10 also offers a basic streaming option, which we will describe below.

World Cup Streaming Options in Nicaragua

You have two national streaming options to watch the Cup in Nicaragua:

  • Canal 10 online señal en vivo
  • Tigo Sports

The website of Canal 10 streams “en vivo,” which means that you can visit whenever matches are playing, and without having to install any apps. Keep in mind that this option is region-locked to Nicaragua, which means that you can only watch on a device with an IP address connected to a national internet provider such as Claro.

As for the Tigo Sports app, it offers all 64 matches, but you have to be a Tigo cable or mobile subscriber. The Tigo Sports app is free for Tigo customers in Nicaragua, but you need an internet plan. To this effect, Tigo will offer wireless data packs starting as low as $2 for 5 gigabytes during the Cup.

What Devices Can You Use to Watch FIFA 2023 in Nicaragua?

The Canal 10 website can be accessed from desktop and laptop computers as well as smartphones and tablets. The Tigo Sports app is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play. If you have a smart TV, Chromecast, or dedicated streaming device such as Roku, the Android version of the Tigo Sports app should work.

Schedule for FIFA 2023 Matches in Nicaragua

The Group Station of the 2023 Women’s World Cup starts Thursday, July 20th and runs through Thursday, August 3rd. The rest of the tournament schedule is as follows:

Fully Enjoying the World Cup in Nicaragua

Thanks to the rising affinity for football in Nicaragua, many commercial establishments in the country are now tuning to Canal 2 and Canal 10 during match broadcasts, which means that you may be able to enjoy some of the matches at bar-restaurants while enjoying vigoron and quesillo snacks. In towns such as Diriangen, which are crazy about football, pretty much all cafes and bars play the Cup on TV for patrons.
