WestStar officials ink an exclusive deal to carry the FIFA World Cup 2014, and this year’s Confederations Cup.

FIFA’s Confederations Cup, dubbed the ‘Festival of Champions,’ is considered a preview to the World Cup. The Confederation Cup started in 1997 and is held every four years, the year before the FIFA World Cup. According to FIFA, the tournament gives top teams from each continent a chance to represent their region on the world stage.

The FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil is expected to pull in a global audience over 715 million and WestStar has the exclusive broadcast rights for the Cayman Islands. It’s all being broadcast on Cayman’s only local, free-over-the-air broadcaster – Cayman 27.
