Top five local world cup screenings

You’ve hung up your newspaper wall chart, are feeling uncharacteristically interested in betting odds, and you’ve taken part in the office sweepstake. It can only mean one thing – it’s the World Cup! For one month, (or until England inevitably get booted out), the country will be gripped by football frenzy. Here are five spots where you can soak up the sporting atmosphere and watch the matches on the big screen.

The Summer of Sport at the Riverside
Catch all the football action of every single game at Vauxhall’s Riverside, and enjoy the first round of drinks on the house when you book a table of four or more during the England matches.

The Clapham Grand
There is really no better place to catch live screenings of all the matches than at Clapham’s Grand – its own 24-foot screen, drinks deals galore and even a DJ for the after party (sure to be playing crowd-fillers if England win, and some emotional power ballads if they lose.)

World Cup Kick Off Screening
World Cup fever is coming to Fulham’s most popular beach club. With panoramic views of the Thames and a summery vibe, Neverland is the ideal suntrap to relax and catch your favourite teams live on a big screen. Arrive before 7pm to bag yourself a free bottle of Peroni.

World Cup Screenings at Pop Brixton
When the sun is shining there is no better spot to be in SW2 than at Brixton’s favourite bar and street food complex. Pop is putting on two screens with plenty of seating, and some of London’s best street food traders will be on hand to fuel the fun with Other Side Fried, Made of Dough and Mama’s Jerk offering their tasty creations.

The Black Horse World Cup
Kingston’s Black Horse Pub has been counting down to the World Cup for a while now, and has organised a whole host of themed food and drink to accompany the screenings. We’d recommend booking a table here as with the promise of showing all live games, it’s sure to be a busy venue.
