The start of the FIFA World Cup is now only one day away. Football fans across the planet are girding their loins for the one-month-long celebration of the world’s most popular sport, so the excitement is extremely palpable at this moment. Can Spain clinch back-to-back titles, or can the home nation Brazil gain momentum with their home field advantage. And then there’s other teams such as Argentina, Italy and Germany, who always do well at the tournament.
The people of Phuket, both locals and expats, and of course tourists alike, are all ready for the imminent kick off in Rio on June 12. Some of the matches will be aired very early in the morning, but there will be some games on during the night hours, so you will want to find a bar to watch the games.
If you are in Karon or Kata, I would suggest you get down to the area’s only Irish pub, Angus O’ Tool’s at Karon Beach, which will have the most electric atmosphere during the games if past world cups are anything to go by. The Irish pub will have two large screens; one inside and one outside, so you can enjoy a vast choice of imported beers and the tasty British cuisine that has seen Angus O’ Tools become one of the most popular Irish pubs in the whole of Phuket.
