Where to Watch: World Cup Matches

Throughout the Boston area—from the North End to Cambridge to Allston— soccer fans gather around televisions in bars, cafés, and restaurants to watch their national teams and favorite clubs. With the World Cup starting tomorrow, we thought it would be fitting to give a couple shout outs to local joints that are sure to be hopping with fans from across the world.

If you really want a good time, make sure you head out for match 5: USA v. UK on 6/12 at 8:30PM!

 

Here’s a selection from Chris Klein’s The Die-Hard Sports Fan’s Guide to Boston.
