The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is finally here, and for the very first time it is taking place in the winter. This unprecedented change means that watching the matches in Florence might look a little bit different this year. While unfortunately Italy did not qualify (boo hiss!), there will still be plenty of places where you can keep up with the tournament, grab a bite to eat, and support your team.


Palazzo San Niccolo table lounge

A popular hangout for the international community, TABLE at Palazzo San Niccolò (via di San Niccolò 79), is offering the opportunity to watch the games while enjoying a bit to eat and something to drink.

La Limonaia

The much-loved Oltrarno events space La Limonaia (via Pisana 77), promises to show all the matches on their big screen.

Red Garter

Red Garter Firenze is known for its live sport showings and the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is no exception. Join them at via dei Benci 33.


Located at via di Camaldoli 2R in the Oltrarno, industrial vibe Reburger is setting up a covered courtyard for sports fans to watch the football while chowing down on one of the city’s best smashed burgers.

The Fiddler’s Elbow

Found in piazza Santa Maria Novella 7R, The Fiddler’s Elbow has long since been the go-to for all major sporting events, shown on their five indoor screens.


Finnegan Irish Pub (via San Gallo 123R) is a popular gathering place for expats and students a plenty. It also shows major sporting events, including the World Cup.

Have food delivered to your door

All of the aforementioned places offer food, but if you would rather watch the games from home, you can get quality burgers delivered by Reburger especially for the World Cup. They are offering a box for three people, including three burgers, one french fries, one sweet potato fries, and one mozzarella bomb for 39.50 euro.

Similarly, Poke Flash is a young, start-up poke place that has very recently opened near Santa Maria Novella train station. It is worth trying on game nights, with takeaway and delivery options available. You can order online, or alternatively they have their own app available on the App Store and Google Play, which has exclusive offers and discounts.
