It only comes around once every four years - the cheering crowds, the national unity, the glory of the win and the agony of defeat.
It's time for the FIFA World Cup. This year, the soccer tournament will be held in Brazil.
From June 12 to July 13, eyes around the world will be glued to television screens around the world as millions upon millions will tune in to watch the most important tournament in the world's most popular sport. A number of national teams from Latin America have qualified for the tournament: Argentina, host country Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico and Uruguay.
Whether you are a hardcore fan of a national team, or a relative soccer neophyte, we at CLACS wanted to make it easy for everyone to find a way to watch a game and participate in this important cultural event. We have compiled a list of restaurants and bars in Lawrence that have indicated they will be showing the games. BRASA, the Brazilian Student Association at KU, will be hosting watch parties as part of the organization's summer schedule. We have also created a PDF schedule of all the games (Central Time Zone) so you won't miss a match!
