Where to Watch the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Philadelphia
Every four years soccer fans around the world come together to cheer on their nation’s teams in the FIFA World Cup. This year’s games, which are being hosted by Russia,  begin on Thursday, June 14 and conclude on Sunday, July 15. Check out the full schedule of games here.
 
We’ve rounded up the bars in Philadelphia where you can celebrate the most popular sport in the world for the next month while enjoying a pint or two. Let us know on Facebook or Twitter if we've missed your favorite spot!
 
This Northern Liberties bar is a haven for soccer players 365 days a year, so it’s no surprise they are one of our top picks to watch the Cup. Enjoy the games on with sound, and stay until the evening when the upstairs bar turns into a dance club to party the night away. (700 N 2nd St.)
SOUND ON
 
This Fairmount mainstay will offer $6 Duvel and Tripel Hop bottles throughout the entirety of the World Cup, and will broadcast all games with sound. (601 N 21st St)
