Game on! Where to watch the Women’s World Cup

Playing bridge: It was a packed house to watch the Men’s World Cup in Dumbo last year. This year’s crowd, for the Women’s World Cup final on July 7, should be just as large.

Let the games begin!

The Women’s World Cup kicked off last week, but the fun is just getting started. Throughout the month-long tournament in France, the 24 best women’s soccer teams will go head-to-head, battling for a spot in the final match on July 7. If you are cheering for the United States — as all patriotic Americans are — you are in luck! Our superstar line-up, led by Alex Morgan, has already been steamrolling the competition, destroying the Thailand team 13-0 in their first match of the competition.

Because of the time difference, live matches screen here in the Borough of Kings at either 9 a.m., noon, or 3 p.m. We have found few spots where you can settle in to watch those games.

Black Forest fans

The owners of German restaurant and beer hall Black Forest Brooklyn, Ayana and Tobias Holler, are big football fans, so they will screen all of the games featuring the German or the United States teams at both Black Forest locations, in Cobble Hill and in Fort Greene. Once the knockout stage begins on June 22, each spot will screen every match on large, high-definition televisions.

Black Forest Brooklyn Fort Greene [733 Fulton St. between S. Elliot Place and S. Portland Avenue in Fort Greene, (718) 935–0300,].

Black Forest Brooklyn Smith Street [181 Smith St. between Warren and Wyckoff streets in Cobble Hill, (718) 522–1806].

Bridge bash

If you want to watch the game while out-of-doors, head to Dumbo to catch the World Cup games under Manhattan Bridge archway. You can lounge on a patch of fake grass in front of the 80-inch screen, where matches will screen every weekday through June 29. For the final match on July 7, a row of vendors from the Brooklyn Flea, including Stand Coffee, Dough Donuts, and Chinese street food servers Jianbing Co., will sell food and drinks. And if the United States team plays in either Semi-Final match on July 2 or 3 — which it probably will — that game will also screen under the bridge.

Archway under the Manhattan Bridge [80 Pearl St. between Water and Front streets in Dumbo, (718) 237–8700,].

Williamsburg World Cup

Banter Bar, the true home of Brooklyn’s soccer fans, will go all out for the World Cup, screening every game on its many television sets with full sound. If soccer feels more like a religion than a sport to you, this saloon is the place to go!

Banter [132 Havemeyer St. at S. First Street in Williamsburg, (718) 599–5200,].

Reach reporter Rose Adams at or by calling (718) 260–8306.

The vision zero troll always projects what it really thinks using other user names. And it’s spewing racism and misogyny all over this site this am, and showing the true colors of the overlords on the Democrat plantation. Don’t walk, run away from the liberal bigots. It also doesn’t comprehend how many of the USWNT are supporters of President Trump.
