When does the World Series start in 2021? Game date 1, TV schedule for Braves vs. Astros


The World Series showdown is officially set.

The Braves held off the Dodgers after taking a 3-1 series lead, closing Game 6 to take the series 4-2. The Astros came back after falling behind 2-1 against the Red Sox by winning three straight games to close out the American League Championship Series and head to their third World Series in five years.

The World Series was already scheduled to begin on Tuesday, October 26, regardless of the outcome of the ALCS and NLCS, but no series that lasts the full seven games means that each team should go to the Fall Classic feeling a little more rested. The Braves will have had two full days off, while Houston will have had three days off.

Sporting News has you covered with all the information you need to get ready for the start of the series, with the dates of each game, television channels and the full 2021 postseason chart and results.
