World Cup Watch: Ann Arbor

. June 10, 2014.

In 2010, A2 soccer fans took in their World Cup matches over breakfast and mimosas. This year’s World Cup, set to kick off on Wednesday at 4pm EST with a match between the host country Brazil and Croatia, offers a more beer-friendly schedule. Good luck getting any work done.

We’ve rounded up a few Ann Arbor hangouts that plan to show the matches and cater to the soccer crowds.

Connor O’Neil’s is the classic Ann Arbor soccer fan’s bar. With beers from around the world, you can match your drinking to the teams you’re watching—Estrella for Spain, Boddingtons for England, Peroni for Italy.
