Wall Street Plaza is one of the best places in the U.S. to watch the World Cup

June 26, 2014

The Boston Globe recently released a list of the five best places in the U.S. to watch the World Cup, and downtown Orlando’s Wall Street Plaza made the list.

We’ve been to the last two USA games at Wall Street, and, it’s crazy down there: painted faces, costumes, competitive drinking and patriotic cheering. Wall Street Plaza has made itself the headquarters of the World Cup in Orlando, packing people in to watch the games on 16-foot-tall TV (and lots of smaller flat-screens located around the plaza). The parties are hosted by Orlando City Soccer, which will become an MLS franchise in 2015.

Wall Street Plaza is joined on the list by Grant Park in Chicago, Mc Teague’s Saloon in San Francisco, Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse in Virginia and the Power and Light Disctric in Kansas City.

This is the scene from the Plaza on Sunday when USA scored its second goal against Portugal:
