Get Your #USWNT Kicks at City Hall Plaza’s World Cup Party
What’s more fun than watching the World Cup with a big crowd? Watching the World Cup outside at night with a big crowd.
Rarely do major international sporting events involving American teams occupy prime time TV slots and make for easy viewing but the 2015 Women’s World Cup is being hosted by our friendly neighbors to the north, Canada.
This year, like last year, the City of Boston has decided to host a large outdoor viewing party on City Hall Plaza for the U.S. games that are at convenient viewing times for the general public. Monday night, the U.S.A. takes on Colombia in a the Round of 16 at 8 p.m. Colombia has proven to be one of the surprise breakout teams at this year’s tournament while the normally dominant U.S. has appeared lackluster and sloppy at times.
The game will be projected on a big screen in front of City Hall and co-hosted by the Boston Breakers. The move to host the event on City Hall Plaza comes on the heels of the Mayor Marty Walsh asking residents to rethink how the windswept monument to 1960s brutalism is utilized.
City Hall Plaza has not brought the best luck to U.S. Soccer however, as the men’s team lost both games in 2014 televised on big screen there.
