The Champions League concludes in May and the World Cup begins in June, making the early summer months the best times to access global soccer coverage. If you don’t have the right cable packages or simply want to take in as much soccer as possible, find a Fado or Tigin Irish Pub near you. These establishments are built around soccer and provide diehard American soccer fans with an enjoyable social atmosphere.
The first Fado Irish Pub opened in Atlanta in 1996 to serve a small community of English Premiere League fans in America. Since then, several other locations have opened around the United States and are gearing up for the most important dates on the world soccer schedule. A recent announcement from Fado said bars around the country will offer specials and live viewing of all 64 World Cup matches between June 12–July 13:
Soccer is the world’s most popular sport and this year, American sports fans are going to join the world’s largest sports audience in record numbers June 12 – July 13. There is, however, a distinction among soccer fans this World Cup over previous tournaments. Real fans watch the biggest soccer tournament in the world in a social atmosphere befitting the beautiful game. And, American soccer bars—once a small niche—will be ready to serve them in a big way.
