Where to Watch the 2022 Football World Cup in Nottingham

Your guide to where you can watch the 2022 Qatar World Cup games in Nottingham city centre. Read on for information about advance table bookings, which places are open to on-the-day walk-ins and who is showing all the England games.

Barley Twist

Based on Carrington Street, near Nottingham Train Station, this charming Castle Rock bar is showing all of this year's World Cup games. No booking required, walk-ins only.

Bierkeller

This German-themed bar on Friar Lane is opening from 9am each day during the tournament and appears to be showing most of the games. Walk-ins are welcome, but if you want to guarantee the best seats then there’s a paid booking system too. Book your seats at Bierkeller.

Binks Yard

They’re claiming to have sourced the ‘largest outdoor screen in the East Midlands’, but before you start wondering how cold and wet that might be they’re offering up covered and heated seating, plus pre-match entertainment too. £10 a ticket per England game, booking via the Binks Yard website.


The Bodega

They’ve gone into the tournament launching a special football-themed beer called Ceiling Paint, brewed with Neon Raptor and Art of Football. They’ve also adorned the walls of the bar with various LGBTQ+ banners from our local clubs to emphasise the venue as an inclusive space. They won’t be showing all the games, but most of those involving the home nations. Just turn up, no booking system.


Bustler

One of the newest venues around, located in the newly re-opened units at Sneinton Market, offering drinks and street food. They’re open for all of the England games during this world cup and you can book advance tickets from their website.

Canalhouse

Iconic Castle Rock pub located next to the canal and with a massive canalboat running through it. They're showing all World Cup games and they have such a huge selection of beers, wines and spirits that you might even be able to source a beverage from each country you watch. No booking required, just turn up. 


Das Kino

Another bar showing only for the England games. There’s no entry fee or reservations. Just turn up. While you’re at it you can get your hands on one of their tasty pizzas and maybe even participate in a round of ping pong.

Horn In Hand

Set up with a big projector upstairs and brand new TV’s downstairs. They’re taking bookings via the Crafted Social platform, which means if you want to guarantee your seats you’ll need to either pre-book some items or pay a bit of cash up front.


Kilpin Beer Cafe

Named in honour of the founder of AC Milan, this is a thinking man’s football bar and possibly a safe haven for those of you who don’t want anywhere too rowdy. Tucked away down an alleyway near the Lace Market tram stop, they’re showing every game and not taking reservations (just turn up).


Nonsuch Studios

Billed as an ‘Arty Farty Football Party’ Nonsuch have teamed up with Art of Football to create an inclusive space for all, offering refuge in particular to women, non binary people and mum’s with babies. Panel discussions are on before the main events and food and drink is available from the bar. Tickets are free,  but booking via their website is advised.


Oz Bar

As you might expect from a sports-themed bar they’re showing all the England games this year. Booking in advance is advised and tickets are available from the Oz Bar Fatsoma page.


Rescue Rooms

They’re rolling out the big screen and the beers for all the England games. It’s free entry, but if you want to confirm your table (and some cut-price pints of Heineken Silver) you can do so on their World Cup Fatsoma page.


The Southbank Bar

As you might expect from one of the city’s most-established sports bars they will be showing as many games as they can. Advance booking is advised through the Southbank Bar website. The England games are £20 a head, but that price includes a meal and a drink.
