And there was Soccer.

Arsenal SportChaserBack a couple of years ago, being a soccer fan in New York was a living hell. Of course finding some specific soccer bars in the city was possible but almost no one cared about soccer and even less about watching it in bars.

And then, the 2010 World Cup arrived… and America discovered soccer! Soccer, this sport that thrill us, soccer, this sport that we love. Finally, the soccer culture fits in the American world. Great players land in the MLS, specialized soccer channels appear in the US and bars finally do broadcast soccer games.

And here we are, in 2014, only a few months ago from the 2014 World Cup taking place in Brazil, the temple of soccer. Funny, isn’ it? So let’s enjoy every second of it, and find the best bars with the best crowds to root for our teams.

And if you’re like us, and your heart beats ‘football’,  come this Saturday for Arsenal v Manchester City at FC Gotham (RSVP here). We hope to see you there!
