The big screen. The raucous noise of a crowd. The passion. The camaraderie. If you can’t get to Qatar for the World Cup this November and December, the next best thing is watching your country play from a distance while surrounded by fellow supporters.

You won’t be able to enjoy the beautiful game while basking in some glorious weather like you would have during previous World Cups, but there are plenty of excellent indoor locations for you to watch this year’s keenly anticipated edition.

It’s sure to still feel like a real festival of football whenever and wherever you tune in, with people donning their colours across the country. It’s a great time to get a shirt for yourself and show where your loyalties lie – either at club level or internationally.

You’ll then feel right at home when you settle in to watch the action take place at these brilliant venues across the UK.

BOXPARK – Shoreditch, London

If it’s a matchday atmosphere you’re after, head down to this trendy part of London. Live music is provided ahead of kick-off to get you ready for the game and there’s a huge range of street food you can tuck into as well.

You may have to leave shortly after the final whistle, but you can always head back into the venue or continue your celebrations (or commiserations) elsewhere.

Legends Sports Bar – Matthew Street, Liverpool

You know you’re always going to have a good time watching the football at a sports bar – after all, it’s what these venues were made for! And nowhere does it quite like Legends in Liverpool.

Watch the game surrounded by HD screens and interesting sports memorabilia. After full-time, spirits are kept up with live music from some of the best local talent.

Road to Victory – Fairfield Street, Manchester

Mayfield Depot promises to provide an experience like no other during the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

It will be Europe’s largest World Cup fan zone and boasts a 140-square-metre screen – you won’t even find that at your local cinema!

Tickets are already available for all three of England’s group games against Iran, the United States, and Wales, and they’re bound to get snapped up soon enough.

Central Park – Times Square, Newcastle

After the success of the fan zone for Euro 2020, Central Park is doing it all over again for the World Cup. However, this time screenings will take place in a heated, 2,000-person tent.

Street food will be available, and drinks can be purchased from a bar that stretches for 30 metres, so you’re sure to be covered on both fronts while the games play out.

Check out the fixture list and start planning where you’ll be watching everything unfold!
