For over a week, Birmingham soccer fans have been waking up early in the morning to watch the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ from Australia and New Zealand. How early? Most of the games kickoff at midnight 3:00AM and 5:00AM.
That all changes Wednesday night, when the reigning defending champion U.S Women’s National Team (USWNT) takes on The Netherlands, the 2019 World Cup finalists at 8:00PM.
Looking for places to cheer on superstar Alex Morgan and dynamic newcomer Sophia Smith?
Here is a list of Birmingham establishments showing the game.:
Good People Brewing
For years, Good People Brewing has been the home of the American Outlaws, the U.S. Soccer’s official supporters group. We asked Nic Gulas, one of the leaders of the Birmingham American Outlaws Chapter to describe why this game matters and fans should show up BIG Wednesday night.
“It’s not very often you get a World Cup Final rematch in the group stages. It’s hard to beat an 8pm local time kickoff, so between time and opponent, this has the makings for a great turnout at Good People. We always see a steady increase in numbers for Women’s World Cups as the tournaments go on, but we would love to see numbers in the 300-400 range for such a massive game with implications on the rest of the tournament. ~ Nic Gulas
