Kathmandu: After the order of the Supreme Court, the way has been opened for live broadcasting of the 22nd FIFA World Cup in Qatar from November 20.

After the cancellation of the short-term interim order issued by the joint bench of Justices Prakash Kumar Dhungana and Manoj Kumar Sharma today, the way for the live broadcast of the World Cup in Nepal has opened.

Earlier, the court had issued an interim order to the Media Hub, which had purchased the broadcasting rights for Nepal from FIFA, to keep the customer package sale process as it is. Owing to this, Nepalis were in dilemma if they will get chance to watch worldcup.

Now, the apex court has opened a way to broadcast and charge extra fee to the audience. Audience have to pay Rs. 500 to watch live world-cup. However, semi-final and final matches will be free.
