Arguably the biggest football pub to open in New York, this comfortably large space is divided into two rooms: one for each team.

The Irish Pub will be open for games at 8 a.m. ET. Shea

Tacos El Bronco
4324 Fourth Avenue, Sunset Park
One of New York’s great taquerias also has a few TVs hanging on the wall: it’s less a football stage than a good place to eat well while watching the game. The platos are fine, but the tacos are where they are. –Oliver Strand

Daly’s Pub
3186 31st Street, Astoria
This charming Irish pub just down from the Broadway stop on the N/W line in Astoria is actually a destination for Croatia fans. They have a fireplace, which goes well with this oddly held World Cup in winter. –Andre Leigh

Spacious bar a few steps from the Astoria-Ditmars Boulevard stop on the N/W. Lots of TVs, a long list of craft beers on offer, and a solid food menu.
