If you're not football mad, there is something else to do during the World Cup make it your goal to research your family history.
You can view all the records* on findmypast for free during every England World Cup match all you need to do is register.
How it works:
30 minutes before kick-off we'll stop charging for 3 hours, which should give you plenty of time to explore what we have to offer.
To get ready, make sure you've registered as you'll need to sign in to view the records. If you need help, take a look at our handy Getting Started guide and our video tutorials.
When England play, you don't pay!
