While the tournament has been tainted by the controversies surrounding human rights in the host country and how welcoming an occasion it would be for LGBTQ+ fans around the world.
England may have achieved the glorious quarter-final exit that many predicted, but interest in Sunday’s 3pm final is likely to still be big in the capital.
Here are five venues where you can watch the big game that should have a good atmosphere:
Vauxhall Food and Beer Garden
This one is on the pricy end of the spectrum, with entry for two people setting you back £33.75.
However, there are three huge LED screens, a range of street food options and an outdoor seating area that is both heated and covered.
You’re guaranteed a decent atmosphere if not the result you might be after.
Courtyard Bar at Vinegar Yard
Conveniently located right beside London Bridge, this outdoor venue offers the usual mix of boujie pizzas, big screens and those essential outdoor heaters.
All World Cup games were free apart from England matches, so it’s not clear whether you’ll have to pay into this area.
If interested, email [email protected] to get yourself a booking for Sunday.
Big Penney Social
Formally known as Truman’s Beer Hall, this huge Walthamstow venue is sure to bring the vibes come 3pm on Sunday.
It’s free to book, you just need to make an inquiry through their page with the latest arrival time being 1.30pm.
They also have a Sunday roast menu if you want to keep things seasonal as you watch the football in Qatar.
Bat and Ball
If you fancy mixing your ball sports on Sunday, then ping pong-themed Bat and Ball in Westfield might be right up your street.
It’ll cost £10 per person to make a booking for the World Cup final, with the latest start time for your reservation being 1.30pm.
And if you don’t get the result you’re looking for in the match, you might have better look at table tennis or karaoke afterwards.
There doesn’t seem to be a huge amount of space left in the Big Chill’s Kings Cross venue for Sunday, but they have a Brick Lane bar also if you can’t get a booking.
It’s free to book through their site, but comes with a pretty hefty £50 fee for late cancellations.
However, you’ll be getting a huge north London location that will be showing the World Cup final in all its glory.
