The FIFA Women’s World Cup began on Friday, but Team USA doesn’t play until Tuesday. The United States Women’s National Team has four Olympic gold medals to its name in its 33-year history and has won the Women’s World Cup three times, including the most recent 2015 tournament. Needless to say, they’re a force to be reckoned with in the soccer world. (Get to know the women on the roster here.)

We’ve rounded up some of the best places around town to watch Team USA play Thailand on June 11 at 2 p.m.

Truman’s Bar and Grill

Truman’s opens at 6 a.m., so you could just camp out all day here. Watch the Netherlands take on New Zealand at 8 a.m. and Sweden battle it out with Chile at 11 a.m. before Team USA comes onto the field.

The Heidelberg offers a rooftop patio that overlooks the MU campus and Ninth Street. Although the seating is plentiful, Vox recommends going early.


Who doesn’t love the ‘berg? Sit down at the bar or up on the patio, order some toasted ravioli apps, and have a good time.

Las Margs patio

The expansive Las Margaritas patio overlooks Swan Lake, making for a semi-outdoorsy experience for diners.

Enjoy a late lunch, a marg and the game at Las Margaritas. We recommend sharing the 64-ounce mango margarita with the table.
