Football fanatics – rejoice! The World Cup is just days away, and with it comes hours of time sat in front of our television screens on the edge of our seats. But where in your neighbourhood is showing the World Cup? After all, nothing quite beats enjoying the beautiful game with a raucous horde of other fans. That’s why Centrick have taken the guesswork out of World Cup season by bringing you the best places to watch the game in Birmingham, Nottingham and Solihull.
Looking for a prime spot to watch Stourbridge’s own Jude Bellingham? How about national treasure Jack Grealish, another of Birmingham’s stand-out stars? Here are Centrick’s top picks for
Luna Springs has proclaimed itself the city’s largest World Cup Fanzone. With giant HD LED screens, live entertainment, street food vendors and DJ’s (not during the game, of course!), Luna Springs is offering an exciting experience to Digbeth’s football fans this winter. Enjoy your favourite celebratory drink under their heated marquee to keep you sheltered from England’s typically unpredictable weather and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere!
If you’re looking to experience the World Cup in style, check out Digbeth’s Secret Space! With pre-match shows, DJ sets, and even a meet and greet with football stars Kevin Phillips, Mark Lawrenson and Stuart Downing, this is surely the most authentic way to spend the World Cup!
If you’re hoping to watch all of England’s matches with a slice of delicious sourdough pizza in hand, you can do no better than visiting The Birmingham Stable! Grab a cider, take a seat, and watch the game unravel in front of you!
Club chain Pryzm may already be a popular location for University students, but did you know they are hosting some extravagant World Cup viewing events? Standing admission is £5, and Main Stage seating for up to 6 guests will set you back £30. Better yet, they claim to have the biggest screen in the city, confetti at the ready for goals, and a variety of themed giveaways.
If you’re looking for a classic English pub in a central location which is showing each and every World Cup match, we’d recommend The Brasshouse. This pub sits on Broad Street, making it exceptionally easy to get to, and serves a range of classic pub food and beverages to keep you fed and watered throughout the matches. Even better, The Brasshouse will be showing every game on their HD screens – it’s a win-win!
Planning on watching the match before spending the evening at Birmingham’s winter wonderland, the German Market? Get in the spirit at Birmingham Bierkeller, a German-themed venue that will be serving a variety of draught beers in the city’s vibrant Southside. Better yet, football fanatics can reserve standard or VIP seating to enjoy the action, a beer, and a tasty Bavarian feast.
It’s a classic, but we couldn’t write this article without mentioning The Distillery! With ample outdoor seating to watch on the big screen, or bookable indoor areas and multiple screens for those who aren’t willing to face the elements, The Distillery offers incredible atmosphere, enthusiastic goal celebrations and tasty pizzas for those who can stomach a mid-game meal (the nerves are getting to us too!).
It may be Birmingham’s oldest pub, but it’s certainly not to be missed! The Old Crown is the perfect place to catch all of the World Cup action, offering a covered, heated beer garden, street food and a big screen showing all of England’s games. It’s free entry, but it’s worth booking a ticket through their website so that you’re not disappointed on game day.
Solilocals, this one is for you! If you’re not fancying venturing into Birmingham to get your World Cup fix, we’ve picked a few of our favourite places to catch all the action.
If you’re hoping to spend the World Cup with a cold beer in-hand, check out Solihull’s renowned drinks packages at The Mason’s Arms. This bar is serving buckets, cocktails and classic pub staples to help keep you quenched throughout the game. Better yet, they’re all available on pre-order so you can watch the match stress-free. (Please drink responsibly!)
This reliable pub chain comes with everything you could possibly need to enjoy the World Cup in Solihull – brilliant food, a vast range of drinks and a vibrant atmosphere. This Irish pub is the perfect place to celebrate the joys of British sport, all in the heart of Solihull.
Yates will be showing not just the World Cup fixtures, but a range of sports throughout November and December, making it the perfect place to get your festive football fix. Locals can watch each and every World Cup match (yes, not just the England games!), the Women’s Super League, Premier League and Scottish Premiership matches, making it the ideal location to watch all of the action.
This award-winning Indian gastro pub will be serving impeccable Asian dishes to enjoy whilst you watch the World Cup, making it the perfect location for Solihull foodies. Much like Yates, Tap and Tandoor won’t just be showing the World Cup, but have a broad schedule of sports matches in their carefully curated calendar to give you your footie fix between games.
Nottingham locals, this one’s for you! There’s no excuse to not enjoy the wonders of the World Cup with such a broad variety of venues in the city showing all of the action! Here are our top picks for where to watch the World Cup in Nottingham…
This independent music venue will be converted into a football fan’s dream for all of England’s matches. Their tagline is simple: ‘big screens, cold beers, good times’ which sounds like the perfect atmosphere to enjoy the World Cup. Better yet, the Rescue Rooms is offering free entry, making it the perfect budget option.
We know, this is our second time mentioning The Bierkeller, but Nottingham’s ever popular Bavarian branch is just as brilliant as Birmingham’s if you’re looking for an inner-city hotspot to enjoy the World Cup. They will be showing all of the World Cup matches but advise that you book in advance for the England games to secure your spot in front of their impressive screens: we’d hate you to miss out on the match day action!
It’s also Pryzm’s second time on this list, as their Nottingham venue will be hosting a similarly extravagant event to celebrate England’s matches. With confetti, CO2 blasts and (most importantly) huge screens, this prime ‘World Cup Fan Zone’ merges football mania with a party atmosphere – it’s the perfect way to celebrate it coming home!
If you’re on the search for a World Cup experience that’s the equivalent of an all-inclusive holiday, we recommend The Southbank Bar. Not only will this sports bar be showing every match, including non-England games, but they are offering booking packages that include reserved seating, table service, a drink and any meal – all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the match!
Here at Centrick, we’re proud to be your local experts for everything Birmingham and Nottingham – in fact, we’ll probably see you at one of these venues to watch it come home!
