FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 is just around the corner, are you ready to throw on a jersey and wave the flag of your favourite team?
If you can’t be at the big match, the next best way to watch beautiful game is down the pub or club with your fellow supporters over beers and grub. In a multicultural city like Vancouver it’s easy to find a like-minded group of supporters gathering to cheer on the same country.
Restaurants, pubs and social clubs are the usual go to spots to watch but with many time zones between Vancouver and Russia’s stadiums (mostly in the European side of the country), the matches air early morning local time. The time difference means many establishments will need to open early to make the most of the matches.
