Travel Forums North America WORLD CUP VIEWING IN CHICAGO

I will be attending a conference July 4 - 10th, can anyone tell me where I will be able to watch the World Cup - in particular the finals!

I am staying at the Hitlon on Mitchigan Avenue.

This could be a more important question if England do in fact manage to get through!

Pretty much any bar/pub in the city will have TVs tuned to various sporting events. I don't think you will have a problem finding somewhere to watch the finals. The hotel bars are usually quite good with accomodating their guests so the soccer games will probably be on. If not, ask the bartender to change channels. If all else fails, there is the huge ESPN store on Ohio Street and I'm sure they will have it on one of their TVs. They have chairs available too.

Thanks so much! I guess if America pull their footie socks up and get through to the final rounds, it will be in more places than anyone anticipates!
