Fox Soccer Channel and mobile services company 2ergo Americas have developed the "Ticket To South Africa" app, which offers World Cup news and video clips but unfortunately lacks live streaming of matches.
Even though the World Cup doesn't officially kick off until June 11th, the app is available now, and it's a free download. For now, it is filled with news stories, photo galleries, and other content like historical World Cup facts.

Once the games actually get underway, though, users will be able to check in on the app to get the latest live updates from each match. There will be a scrolling ticker that includes instantly-updated scores and stats, as well as text-based play-by-play descriptions.

However, there will be no live video feeds available in the app. Instead, users will have access to select video clips, but the majority of the live content will be in text-only format.

Other features include the ability to tag and track specific teams, and integration with Facebook.

"Avid soccer fans look to Fox Soccer Channel to bring them expert coverage of the world’s biggest stage... With our intensive coverage and analysis of the games wrapped into a beautiful and customizable format, we are providing the millions of fans with iPhones everything they need to know about this summer’s FIFA World Cup when they want it and how they want it," said Fox Sports VP of Interactive Media Bhavesh Patel.

To subsidize the $0.00 price tag on the app, Fox teamed with Audi, so expect Audi ads to be spread all over the app as you're tracking game updates.
