Where to Watch The FIFA World Cup in Singapore
World Cup fever is well and truly upon us!
With the first match of this momentous sporting event just around the corner, it’s time to think about where you’ll go to take in all the action…
Who are you supporting for Russia 2018 World Cup?
While Singapore may not be taking part yet again (we’re sensing a pattern here), there are 32 teams you can choose to get behind. In fact, there are 64 matches scheduled between the 14th of June and the final on the 15th of July. With Singapore being 5 hours ahead of Russia, it’s time to take out the schedule and start making plans!
Now, it’s fair to say that no World Cup match viewing is complete without the right kind of food and drinks. So, we have rounded up 10 of the best spots across Singapore where you can catch the games while enjoying delicious food and some nice brews or cocktails.
Where is the perfect place to catch some live sports on the big screen? Hero’s Singapore in Boat Quay, of course! No matter where your table is you’ll be sure to have a few screens in your line of sight. Plus, the menu is an irresistible fusion of Indian and Western cuisine so look forward to chowing down on kebabs, pizzas, wraps and more. Want an insider tip? Book a table in the VIP area so you can pour your own cold pints of beer while watching the matches!
Dallas - Suntec, Marina Bay and Boat Quay
With three outlets to choose from, you’ll never be too far away from a World Cup viewing at Dallas. Suntec City, Marina Bay and Boat Quay are three locations where you’ll find a whole host of sharing platters, pizzas, antipasti and more. Reserve a table in advance and prepare to graze on delicious bar snacks as you cheer on your chosen team!
One of the reasons we love Picnic so much is the diverse international food offering they have, with 13 different food trucks and stalls. Not being able to decide what you want to eat is a daily struggle, but at Picnic you don’t have to – choose a range of different dishes from the range of food vendors. We’ll have some sushi and authentic Mexican tacos please! And non-stop margaritas while taking in all the sporting action, of course.
George’s - Beach Club, At The Cove, By The Bay
Another handy suggestion to satisfy your World Cup fever has to be George’s. No matter if you’re coming from work, the beach or anywhere else in Singapore, you’ll never be too far from a George’s establishment where the World Cup is being televised. Whether you fancy some panoramic views of the East Coast sea in George’s Beach Club, a cold beer at Georges At The Cove or some fresh seafood at Georges By The Bay, you’ll never miss a match on the big screen.
The Fine Line
The Fine Line in Holland Village has got it all… International beers and bar bites such as hearty sandwiches, wholesome salads and one of the most perfectly grilled steaks you’re likely to find in Singapore. Plus, the friendly team here make you feel right at home. It’s like watching the matches in your living room, just with much better food and drink!
Bistro @ Duo
If you’re looking for a refined location to enjoy the World Cup matches, it has to be Bistro @ Duo. The sophisticated atmosphere, expertly-mixed cocktails, fine wine, chargrilled mangalica and unique lava rock grilled steaks are a few reasons why a reservation at Bistro @ Duo in Bugis should be at the top of your list when planning your World Cup viewings!
Bar Bar Black Sheep Robertson Quay
Some could argue that craft beer and football are a match made in heaven. That’s certainly the case at Bar Bar Black Sheep Robertson Quay, where you’ll find a lively atmosphere and amazing grub to boot. The cherry on top? There’s no GST or service charge. How good is that?! As a result, however, this place can get pretty packed so reserve your spot for the World Cup matches now. Get in!
Atmosphere East Coast Park
If you’re looking for a great atmosphere where you’ll find other passionate football fans, you’ve come to the right place. The food offering at Atmosphere East Coast Park means you won’t have to go hungry as you sink pints and cheer on your team. A few of our favourite dishes include the Wagyu beef burger, the ribeye steak and the salami basil pizza. Back of the net!
Boomarang Boat Quay
Maybe you’re supporting the Aussies for Russia 2018, or perhaps you just love a big Australian-style feed every now and then? Either way, Boomarang Boat Quay is the place to go. You can barrack for the Socceroos while enjoying some kangaroo sliders with beetroot relish and garlic aioli on mini burger buns or some beer-battered barramundi with fries, mesculin and tartare sauce. That sounds delightful, now doesn’t it?
If you’re rooting for one of the European teams in this year’s World Cup, perhaps Erwin’s Gastrobar should be your haunt for the next month of matches. The menu is bursting with plenty of different European dishes, wines and beers – plus, they even have Germany’s beloved Paulaner on tap at the bar. How can you argue with that? Spots are limited so advance booking at Erwin’s is best!
