Public screening of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Brussels

The FIFA World Cup is approaching, and in a football-loving country like Belgium, people are getting excited. But, where can you watch the World Cup outdoors in Brussels?

fifa world cup in brusselsAccording to an article posted on April 2018, there will be no public screenings of the FIFA World Cup in Brussels. Due to fear of terrorist attacks, they do not want large crowds to gather together on locations hard to secure for the police. But, there are some exceptions. The Edmond Machtens Stadium will be a place people can go to watch the football matches outdoor. This facility is easier to control, and thus people can watch the FIFA World Cup matches on a giant screen inside the stadium. Another place deemed suitable for the FIFA World Cup is Place du Miroir. The square is a bit outside the city center, but you can easily get there using public transportation.

Belgium is one of the big outsiders in front of the tournament, and the people of Belgium hope that their players can make it all the way to the big final. Belgium will play in Group G, and they will play against Panama (June 18th), Tunisia (June 23rd), and England (June 28th). This is considered an easy group, and everyone expects the last match against England to be the match that decides which nation will win the group, England or Belgium. You can see a full FIFA World Cup schedule and information on how to stream the event online here.

We will cheer for Belgium, and hopefully, De Bruyne, Lukaku, and the other Belgian heroes will bring gold and glory back to the nations as the World Cup is finished on July 15th.
