World Cup Games

While November usually holds excitement for Thanksgiving, enthusiasm has been building up all month in preparation for the upcoming World Cup. Held every four years, spectators watch the contest with bated breath as countries clash with one another in fierce competition. And while getting your passport and tickets to the event in question might present itself with a degree of difficulty, another option is just as exciting. While McGrath’s Irish Ale House is open all year long, and the festivities are always far from over, we’re throwing our doors open during the World Cup to create an environment and atmosphere that will make the event that much more enjoyable. 

Game Day Arrives on November 20th 

The World Cup officially kicks off on November 20th at 8:00 AM. We’ll be displaying the matches that occur on that day and time, as well as those that occur at  8:00 AM, 11:00 am, and 2:00 PM the following day. There’s a lot to be excited about. While the event begins on the 20th with the match between Qatar and Ecuador, the next day is when things REALLY kick into high gear, with the 8:00 AM game on the 21st taking place between England and Iran. Other games that day include Senegal duking it out with the Netherlands and the team from the United States going up against Wales. 

Pour a Pint and Enjoy! 

There’s never a bad excuse to stop on into McGrath’s for a few drinks and some of our first-class Irish cuisine and hospitality; the excitement of the World Cup is infectious, and we want to provide our customers with a first-class experience. This is why when game time begins; we’re offering buy one, get one pint. Whether you’re in the mood for Guinness or not doesn’t matter as long as you enjoy yourself! 

A Better Experience Than the Stadium 

Enjoying the game at a stadium can be enjoyable, but the crowds and prices can easily hinder excitement. At McGrath’s, we’re completely committed to giving our patrons an excellent experience, which is why we also provide private viewing areas for the spectacle. These will most likely fill up fast, so book your reservations today!
