Amo Futebol!

Amo futebol! The FIFA World Cup, which only comes around once every four years, will start Thursday, June 12, in the South American country of Brazil and won’t conclude until Sunday, July 13.

Armoury (2048 Larimer St.; 303-295-0215)
The Armoury was opened in 2013 specifically for the futbol fanatic because the pub’s owner, Kristian Baehre, is one himself. Watch the games on four 50-inch flat screen TVs and one giant SEVEN FOOT screen with surround sound. The pub also has a party bus with service to and from Colorado Rapids home games.

McLoughlin’s (2100 16th St.; 303-573-5131)

To be eligible for the big raffle, every time you visit Stoney’s during the World Cup, you will get one free raffle ticket and ordering any one of Stoney’s special beers will give you extra chances to win.
