Now the Premiership is done and dusted, it’s time to turn our thoughts to Euro 2016. To say we are excited is an understatement.
It’s fantastic that England, Northern Ireland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland all qualified. We are very sad that Scotland didn’t make it this time around, but hope they’ll still throw their support behind the Brit contingent.
So, that begs the big question — where will you be watching the games?
Some fans prefer to host at home, maybe with some beers and a barbecue, or slip away from the office and watch the game in the lobby. Some companies are kind enough to set up TV screens … we remember that in the last World Cup … as the time difference from France means most games will start at lunchtime or early afternoon.
The Brits in Toronto crew love to meet up with fellow fans and find a pub to watch the games at. Nothing beats putting on your chosen team’s shirt and living the agony and ecstasy with those of the same ilk.
Here’s a list of pubs to start your research.
We are interested in suggestions for the best pubs or other locations to watch the games in Toronto, so please tweet or e-mail us, or leave a comment under this post.
We know it’s still 21 days away but want to get prepared!
Cheers in advance.
