Watch the World Cup in Waterloo

The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be played in Russia 14 June-15 July. Luckily, you wont need to leave Waterloo to see the games live!

With the World Cup tournament starting in a week, it's good to start planning where to watch all the games.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup, held between 14 June-15 July, will be the 21st FIFA World Cup. 32 men's national teams will play 64 matches at 12 venues in 11 Russian cities, with the final match being played on 15 July in Moscow. The mascot of the tournament, a wolf named Zabivaka (Russian for 'the one who scores'), was selected based on an online vote in 2016.

England is playing its first matches against Tunisia (18 June), Panama (24 June) and Belgium (28 June).

WeAreWaterloo will be having an outdoor screening of the England v Belgium game in front of The Walrus at the Waterloo Food Month Launch Party on 28 June.

In case you haven't decided to book a holiday to Russia for the tournament, many pubs here in Waterloo are broadcasting the games live. Jack's Bar on Isabella Street, Duke of Sussex on Baylis Road, The Horse & Stables on Westmister Bridge Road, The Kings Arms on Roupell Street and The Ring on Blackfriars Road are all showing the games. In case you're concerned over your energy levels not reaching those of the players, all of the pubs are serving drinks and bites as usual.

Jack's Bar, Duke of Sussex, The Horse & Stables, and The Kings Arms are also taking resevations, if you want to bring your mates along for a screening.
