Where will you be watching USA vs. Brazil?


After a bumpy start to their Confederations Cup campaign, the U.S. men's national team has reached the tournament's final after two unlikely results, including a 2-0 blanking over #1 ranked Spain. The U.S. will play Brazil on Sunday (2:30 pm ET, ESPN) and are one more surprising victory away from lifting the cup.

Will you be watching at an official U.S. Soccer bar, or will you be in the comforts of your own home watching with friends and family? Wherever you may be we are sure it will be fulfilling to see the U.S. play in its first ever final in a major FIFA competition.

If for some reason you can't watch the game live (and you better have a good excuse if you can't), you can follow along here on SBI via the Gameday Commentary. Tomorrow could really be the day where we have our first thousand-comment post so feel free to follow along here.

So, where will you be watching the final? Let us know in the comments section below. And if you're not superstitious, throw out a prediction or two.

    With the boys. Big screen, HD, BBQ, beer. No better way to watch the U.S. make history. It’ll be our first major title.


  2. Tom the Yank says:

    DeMillo’s Bayside in Portland, ME was a good luck charm vs Spain so, we’ll be there in numbers, again. RiRa, also in Portland, will be full of US soccer supporters, as well.

  3. Paul says:

    I was considering watching it at my place with some friends, but someone told me they’re trying to start an AO chapter, I might have to watch it at the bar with them. Can’t wait

  5. ciscokid says:

    Interestingly, I’ll be at the Sounders game, which starts at around the 75th min of the confed cup final.

    Big Props to the Sounders FO. They’ve announced they will open gates early and show 1st half on stadium screen. Then they’ll impose a news blackout without any mention or highlights of the 2nd half.

    Following the game against Rapids, fans can stay and watch video replay of 2nd half in stadium.

    In an age of Blackberries it might be hard to keep people from knowing the score but hopefully those who know will remain silent and allow the rest of us to anticipate the 2nd half.

    More creative thinking by Sounders FO.

    @ home in Raleigh with the wife. I’m so lucky she likes soccer!

  8. Terry says:

    We will be watching at Qwest Field. The first half will be shown live and the second half will be shown after the Sounders-Rapids game on delay. I hope we have a full house to watch the USA game. That will be fun to watch with 30,000 others. Go USA!

  9. vivavilla says:

    where can i find a list of “official usa soccer bars” any in the bay area?

  10. jmac says:

    Lucky’s Sports Bar, Houston, TX

    Captain Jacks in Lincoln, NE with the American Outlaws!

  12. spiny norman says:

    at gillette stadium with a $10 harpoon ipa or three.

  13. K1p says:

    ciscokid, I think no news in this case will be bad news. If you figure out the score by judging the crowd’s reaction, the US lost. If a small murmur starts in several spots within Qwest and grows to incredible proportions, then we won!

  14. AltiCooper says:

    Off topic: Villareal sells striket Nihat… maybe Altidore wont leave after all

  18. EC says:

    At one of the many soccer pubs in NYC.

    Also for those who want to relive Spain vs US.

    Here are two great videos of the US goals with different calls from different countries over them:

  19. Andrew says:

    I was scheduled to work over a month ago, so I will be watching the game via ESPN 360 from inside the Oakland A’s out-of-town scoreboard.

  20. ThaDeuce says:

    Going to the beach with girlfriend’s family so Nearest Bar to Dauphin Island Alabama. If anyone is down there, just let me know where to go to watch! Otherwise I’m going to cruise the strip. I’m making them leave at 6 a m so I can find a spot!

  21. Rastafari says:


    Qwest field, Seattle

  22. Casey says:

    I’ll probably watch it at home. I was thinking about going to The Graduate in Davis, CA, but there will probably be too many annoying bandwagon USA families with their snotty nosed kids running around.

  23. Peter says:

    flat on my back in my breakfast room watching on HD – recovering from hernia surgery courtesy of cutting too hard in tight space playing 5 a side last winter GO USA!!!!!!!!!

  24. Nathan says:

    At CBS Scene directly outside Gillette Stadium with American Outlaws Boston, Providence, and New Hampshire chapters.

  25. Isaac says:

    At home in Apex NC on the couch.

  26. B-Hags says:

    Brits Pub in MPLS!

  27. Derek says:


  28. FK PIRIN says:

    At “700”, bar in Philadelphia

  29. Chris H says:

    The Bull and Bear, Houston, TX – West side. Go USA!

  30. sasoccerfan says:

    Lion & Rose Pub @ 410/Blanco – San Antonio TX

  31. matt says:

    Unless somebody knows of somewhere good to watch in East Lansing, I will be watching from my couch.

  32. Jacob A. says:

    Likely at home with friends over, maybe a local establishment depending on the demographic of the crowd around 2.

  33. quen47 says:

    @ Taylor’s Bar and Grille in Eugene, OR next to the Univ. of Oregon campus

  34. Tony says:

    With my dad, my cousin and our wives on 46″ of HD goodness. Man, I can’t wait!!

  35. Greg says:

    Since for some reason this country that I live in (Argentina) shuts down all of the bars on election days, I’ll be stuck watching from home.

  36. soccerroo says:

    Lochrann’s Irish Pub in Frisco, TX. Having some fish and chips.

  37. I will be at the Crown and Anchor Tropicana in Las Vegas NV. Let’s go you Yanks.

  38. Jacob A. says:

    Off topic, but marca.com expects Conor Casey to start in Michael Bradley’s spot. Like, in central midfield and everything.

  39. Alex says:

    watching at home on my 57 inch HDTV and I hope I don’t get any interuptions. Man I hope my 2 year old doesn’t wake up from his nap….

  40. Don Miguel says:

    Vila do Bispo, Portugal with my Brit friends. This tournament has raised some eyebrows over here.

    USA 2 Brazil 1!!!

  41. jozabar says:

    We are headed to Paris for the first time and looking for a good soccer bar. Anybody have any good ideas?

  42. DJ says:

    Brazil will display nearly perfect attacking soccer but will be unable to put the ball in the net. After 120 minutes of scoreless soccer, howard will block three straight penalty kicks giving the US the victory.

  43. Tom P says:

    At home alone.

    They never win when I go out or invite company over.(Very Superstious I know) Plus in most bars in South Florida everyone is rooting for whom ever we are playing and it makes me feel very anti-imigration even though I am a 1st generation american and most of my friends were born outside the U.S.

    I work outside the U.S., while based here in Miami, and have for 20 years and I still can never get over the level anti americanism when it comes to the U.S. national team.

    I hate Lou Dobbs with a passion but he and his cronies would have a field day down here on a U.S. National game day.

  44. Ryan N says:

    RLW2020, i live up in beverly for most of the year and have a small group of friends that go out for the games. we should all get together sometime for a match once i’m back in the area

  45. montanamatt says:

    Either at lucky bar in DC or in my living room. Still not sure which one though.

  46. Chris Camera says:

    Brewhouse in Atlanta! Hope I can sleep tonight. Good luck boys, bring it home!

  47. gaucho says:

    The first 15 mins of the game in the terminal at JFK–then I have to get on a plane :-(

    The only time I will be rooting for a two hour delay.

  48. Modibo says:

    Like gaucho I have travel plans – trying to change a dc to chicago flight to get to the globe pub in time for the game!

  49. CSD says:

    In Atlanta at my house, not at the Brewhouse. That place is crap.

  50. Ben says:

    At the same house i watched the Spain game, have to go with the superstitious good luck 😉

    So expecting another 2-0 victory, Brazil doesn’t know whats comin for ’em

  51. RK says:

    MAD DOG IN THE FOG in San Francisco!

  52. Jack says:

    On the big screen at the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Oneonta! Where else?

  53. Göteborg Matt says:

    At home, listening to the Swedish commentators begrudgingly admit that the US isn’t as crap as they’ve said all along. The only thing better than watching the US win, is hearing all the European experts backtrack after a US win.

  54. RHB says:

    At the Hooters across the street from the C.A.B. before the Wizards game, let’s go Yanks!!

  55. Chris F says:

    I’m going to be in NYC tomorrow… where’s a good place to watch the game around midtown?

  56. Tom in GA says:

    Will be in Birmingham, AL on Sunday afternoon. Any SBI fans in the area that can recommend a place for my 13 year old son and I to watch the game?

  57. nando says:

    watching the game with the family…… usa wins 2-1!

  58. Jamie Z. says:

    I’m trying to find a pub showing it in Buffalo. Anyone know of such a place?

    I’ve got a good feeling about the match. I’m always prepared to come away disappointed, but I believe in our guys. If we can put in a strong showing without Bradley (and Jones), I think it’ll show we’ve got a lot going for us going forward.

  59. leftcoastmetro says:

    Anyone know a good place in the East Bay (Berkeley/Oakland area?) Otherwise, it’s The Mad Dog in SF for me too!

    Anyone have suggestions for a good soccer bar in the Dallas-Forth Worth area? I’ve heard some good things about the Londoner but have never been. Thanks!!

  64. Djep says:

    … in my small and quiet (until kickoff) apartment in Seoul … Live at 3.25am, MONday .

    I’ll have about an hour to sleep, unless the game goes long, before I need to head out to work .

  65. Matt says:

    At a large pub in Downtown Seattle with 30,000 friends and neighbors :)

  66. Jacob A. says:

    Anybody have any good places in Atlanta not named Brewhouse? Any ideas where the Atlanta chapter of the Outlaws will be watching?

  67. Jacob A. says:

    Never mind that last comment.

  68. Barry U says:

    Lucky Strike bowling alley Charlotte NC.

  69. BlueWhiteLion says:

    okay, Ives, where is this “Feilhaber could play a vital role” story? I see the link, but it links to a blank page. And it is not present on the home page! Taunting us!

  80. me says:

    At The Thirsty Lion in Portland, Oregon

    Join us!

  81. ThaDeuce says:

    Tom, try Buffalo WIld Wings. They have huge HD TV Screens and stuff, but its not completely a bar. He can get in without an ID, and if he likes wings, they are the best! You can drink the adult beverages, they have self serve fountain drinks for your boy. He should be happy there, and so should you.

    There are other sports bars, like” On Tap,” but those are all about the drinking, and you may have to be 21 to enter.

    Good Luck!

    I’ll be in Dauphin Island, still hoping someone on here can help me find a place there!

  82. ThaDeuce says:

    Barksdale, that is awesome. That camp was the best soccer camp i ever went to when I was younger. Doug Allison is the man! Go Deuce!!!

  87. Jim says:

    At Mulligan’s in Hoboken. C’MON US!!!!

  88. chris says:

    LeftCoastMetro, The Englander in San Leandro is a good option in the East Bay. They show all the US games and get good crowds. It is three or four blocks from the San Leandro BART Station.

  89. Jules says:

    At the Fox n’ Hounds in Studio City. Everyone is your friend there.

    Brouges bar in Lake Worth Florida with friends.

  93. Yossarian says:

    Chris F.,

    Bakers Street is supposed to be decent and I once caught a game at Tonic and it was a surprisingly good atmo for a Times Square bar, but for a real footie experience, you have to head down to Nevada Smiths, that’s where I’m going. It’s gonna be a madhouse!!!

  94. FIXXXER says:

    Fado Irish Pub in Atlanta, GA. If you are local stop in – bringing a bunch of people myself so it will certainly be a good crowd. I was at the Brewhouse for the South Africa v Brazil game – I think Fado will be a much better spot

  95. Hopper says:

    Qwest Field’s Jumbotron!

  112. jjraines says:

    I’ll be watching just how I always like to: at home alone, in front of a 70″ screen in all its HD glory.

  113. Leonardo says:

    The Best Way: @Mi Casa with the Familia, BBQ, Beers (i’m sick can’t have any), and yes, the USA WILL WIN!!!


    like in the Tyson movie, his trainer as he was a kid told him ‘YOU’RE A CHAMPION, YOU’RE A CHAMPION’

    cuz you gotta believe it first.

  117. Dominghosa says:

    At home with the 52 with my Mexican friend who can play the game but doesn’t watch it. Guess it’s just in his blood. …

  118. Michael S. says:

    At some cafe in Tunis, Tunisia. I’m here on business and many cafes are packed for all of the games. Chances are they will be showing the Arabic commentators, but it is also televised with Italian commentators.
