A Calendar to Follow the Football World Cup on Macos and Ios


From 14 June to 15 July, the whole world will lie still vibrate to the crazy rhythm of the football: the football world cup will indeed occupy the feet and minds. The event, which takes place in Russia, has 64 matches which are not to be missed (we’d be remiss if we missed the exciting Costa Rica versus Serbia on 17 June!). To make sure you don’t miss anything, the Calendar app is here.

Unfortunately, FIFA does not provide a calendar to import, but you can go through this template available on iCalShare, to import on Calendar, either on macOS or iOS.

On Mac, after allowing the application to be launched from the web page Calendar offers to import the file in question.

After importing, Calendar offers several options to customize the file. This allows you to change the name and color of the calendar, choose a location (on your Mac, the iCloud account or another account), keep or delete alerts and attachments, choose the rate of automatic refresh (or refuse it), and ignore alerts.

If you have chosen iCloud sync, the calendar will be available on all devices connected to the same iCloud account, of course.

On iOS, the principle is the same, except that the calendar will be stored on the device (no iCloud sync in this case).

The dates of the meetings will be wisely arranged in this new calendar:

The calendar options are limited to the congruent portion: you can change the name of the event and its colour, but that’s about it. It is impossible to change its location as on the Mac, nor to manage alerts.

When France will have won the final the World Cup will be over, you will be able to unsubscribe from this calendar. On MacOS, simply right-click on the event name in the left panel and select the option Unsubscribe :

On iOS, it’s more complicated. Go to Accounts and Passwords > Calendar Subscriptions, and then touch the name of the calendar you want to delete.

Good game!
