This may be a challenge as there will be a lot of broadcasters and may be difficult to identify.  The other approach is to QOS cap streaming media.  While this would control World Cup traffic it will also cap other streaming media traffic as well.  It is a safety valve we have used for the past couple of years for sporting events like this.  It has guaranteed that we have enough bandwidth for "work" purposes.
