There are few people who don’t love soccer. With the World Cup coming soon, this is the time to get in on the action and watch the best players from all over the globe compete against each other.
If you have never watched soccer, this is a great time to start. But if you are in a bar watching with a group of friends or some strangers, you may need to learn how to behave properly in order to avoid getting into fights or drawing unwanted attention.
To watch soccer in a bar without interruption:
For the soccer fan, there are few things more annoying than watching a match in a bar full of fans who don’t know how to watch a game. While the World Cup is on, it’s easy to go out to a bar with friends and find yourself surrounded by loud fans distracting from your enjoyment of the game. I’m going to help you out with some tips for watching a game without interruption.
First, get there early. Get there early so you can set up your spot and not have to worry about being interrupted (unless you get stuck behind someone). Get there at least an hour before the match, but preferably even earlier if you really want to avoid all distractions. If you’re planning on watching a game at home, then be sure to get there at least an hour before kickoff and find your spot.
Second, make sure that if you’re watching a game at home, that you have everything set up before the match starts. You don’t want to be running around trying to find things while everyone else is enjoying themselves! Be ready when the whistle blows! This also means having snacks on hand or ordering food in advance, so that you aren’t distracted by hunger during the game.
Finally, when it comes time for halftime or fulltime, make
Sure, maybe you’re in the minority of Americans who considers soccer his or her favorite sport. But that doesn’t mean you want to discuss the intricacies of watching soccer with your fellow sports fans. You just want to watch the game, and be left alone to enjoy it while sipping a cold beer.
It took me a while to figure out how to do this, but I’ve perfected my technique now.
1. Find a good bar that plays soccer games. If there aren’t too many soccer fans in your area, consider buying a jersey from your favorite team and wearing it when games are on. Be sure not to pick one from a popular team like Real Madrid or Manchester United, though. It’s hard enough to find someplace quiet when you’re an Arsenal fan (as I am), let alone if you’re wearing a Manchester United jersey (which is like advertising that you have money on you).
2. Don’t wear headphones unless you have them on for the full 90 minutes of the game, and don’t wear a helmet unless it’s for the full 90 minutes of both games being played that day. If you hear someone ask what’s going on in the game, simply point at your phone/tablet/laptop/television/
Soccer is a sport, not just a game. A sport with millions of fans around the world, just like basketball and baseball. I am one of those fans, but I’m tired of watching it in a sports bar and being asked the same questions over and over again.
This blog is my way to express my feelings about how important soccer is to me, and how much it means to fans around the world.
Soccer is a sport for all ages and races, and it’s not just for guys. The rules are simple: you don’t need to know anything about soccer to enjoy it or even watch it without interruption from fans or players. You just need to love it as much as I do – or at least be willing to listen.
I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I do!
In the US, soccer is not a sport for those who are easily annoyed. It’s an acquired taste, and a good bar is absolutely essential to fully enjoying the experience.
In my experience, very few people understand how to watch soccer. Most Americans see it as something they don’t like and they don’t understand, but I would argue that most people just haven’t been exposed to it properly. The right environment can help you learn to love the beautiful game.
With this in mind, I have compiled a list of suggestions which will make your soccer viewing experience more enjoyable for everyone involved.
1) Go to a bar that has a room dedicated to soccer viewing. Since there are many games being played on different channels at different times, this becomes crucial especially if your party is large or if you want to watch more than one match simultaneously. This way your party can take over the room and cheer without disrupting others who aren’t interested in the game.
2) If you do decide to watch soccer outside of a sports bar, be considerate of others around you. If you are in a room with others who aren’t watching the game with you, try to keep your cheering as low-key as possible. Also, be sure not to
A quick check of the fine print on their website, however, reveals that they are showing the game in the bar area only. This is a mistake by the bar owners, but it’s not an uncommon one.
We fans would like to see and hear the English Premier League match we are watching on television with as little interruption as possible. The majority of sports bars in America will have no problem with this. Their business is built around fans like us who want to watch sports games on TV while drinking beer and eating wings. However, these bars are typically loud and crowded places that could be made even more so by a football fan base wanting to watch a game that doesn’t start until 11:30am local time, is played in England (the home team will be playing in the late afternoon), and has an expected end time of just before 2:30pm local time.
Unfortunately, there will also be a crowd of people at these sports bars who will be there specifically to watch college football games starting at 12:30pm local time and ending around 4:00pm local time. These will be big football games for big football schools that have a big following in your city. These fans will show up at the bar early to get a seat and claim their territory
The game of soccer, or football as it is known in most countries outside the United States and Canada, is considered by many to be the world’s most popular sport. Soccer is played on every continent, which makes it a global sport.
The basic setup of soccer is very simple. There are two teams of eleven players each. The object of the game is to use your foot to kick the ball into your opponent’s goal more times than they can kick the ball into yours. Fairly straightforward stuff.
The game is played on a field that measures anywhere from 100 yards (90 meters) to 130 yards (120 meters) wide and anywhere from 50 yards (45 meters) to 100 yards (90 meters) long. The goal boxes are located at opposite ends of the field, and a halfway line separates them. The referee will toss a coin before kick-off to determine which team gets first possession of the ball.
After this point, things get a little more complicated.
