A Guide To Enjoying Football On Holiday [Infographic]

Jetting off on holiday during the World Cup and don’t want to miss any of the action? Don’t panic – you might be away from home but you can still catch those all important games. Football is a global sport and for a few weeks this summer, the whole world will be watching. Wherever you go, you won’t be too far away from a TV screen showing the football.

If you’re a huge football fan though, taking a chance and just hoping you’ll discover somewhere showing the matches isn’t good enough – you need to know for sure! Fortunately, here at Travel Republic we’ve done the hard work for you. We’ve focused on 10 popular locations with teams playing in the World Cup and selected some of the very best bars and hotels in each. From large multiscreen sports venues guaranteed to deliver a fantastic atmosphere, to quieter spots where you can relax in comfort, there’s something for everyone.

Our guides cover Benidorm, Cancun, Magaluf, Hurghada, Reykjavik, Tenerife, Lanzarote, Berlin, Dubrovnik and the Algarve. There are 50 here, complete with addresses and details of key features. If you head to Berlin’s Fanmeile (Fan Mile) – a long stretch in the heart of the city – fans can congregate in their thousands and watch matches on a range of large screens. If you’re lucky, catch a game when the ‘home’ nation is playing and the atmosphere will be electric. Imagine doing a Mexican wave while watching a game in Cancun…
