If you’re not already a football fan – now is the time to start….. or at least start pretending!
That’s because on Thursday this week it’s football season across the whole world and so it will be for the next month or so.
Normal working hours from Balham to Brooklyn will be scrapped and replaced by the glorious game.
The World Cup is undoubtedly the biggest event on the football calendar, and it returns after four years for another blow-out this summer. This time around it will be hosted in Russia this June and July.
So if you’re looking for things to do in London and Houston this month, be prepared for World Cup time!
The tournament begins with Russia v Saudi Arabia this Thursday and features big clashes, such as Portugal v Spain, Belgium v England and Argentina v Croatia as early as the group-stage games.
Where to Watch the World Cup
The only unfortunate thing is that Italy failed to qualify for the first time in 60 years, so at Mascalzone we are slightly downbeat about this year’s Tournament.
Not only that but the USA failed to qualify too.
As a result our Houston staff will be joining up with our London teams to get behind England as they take on the World’s finest this time around!
But we won’t only be cheering for England, as we will be showing matches from the World Cup on screens in all our locations.
So if you feel like a change from the usual sports bars and pubs and you are looking for somewhere to watch world cup games then come and join us at Mascalzone for a game of football, a Pizza and a Peroni!
