Where to Watch the World Cup if You Live in Altadena

No one should watch the World Cup alone, without friends and fans screaming their enthusiasm, or their frustration, at the giant big screen TV bring all the action right into your lap while you enjoy great drinks, bar food, and the laughter of people you’re proud to call neighbor.

Where is the one place you should go to view all the World Cup Events you ask?

Altadena Ale & Wine House is the answer, and the reason is simple. They will be open, and ready to bring you all the games of the World Cup no matter what time they are showing on the West Coast.


Of course you know that the games this year will be happening in Russia, and that will make for some pretty early games in Altadena, but for those of you who love the game it won’t make any difference. You can come and view these great games on Altadena Ale & Wine House’s big TV, and pound down some tasty beverages, and enjoy some good ol’ bar food to go along with the good times.

The first match of the World Cup to the shown at Altadena Ale & Winehouse will be between Russia and Saudi Arabia on Thursday, June 14 and takes place in Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium. Kickoff is at 11 am 8 a.m.

Matches will take place in the stadiums at Sochi, St. Petersburg, and Ekaterinburg, among other stadiums in Russia. If you see a particular team, look up their group schedule. Find the match schedule, and then make your plans to be up and awake for the game.

Germany, the returning champs, facing off against Mexico on Sunday, June 17 at 8 a.m. England’s popular striker Marcus Rashford will play in the first game against Tunisia on Monday, June 18 at 11 a.m.
