Where To Watch England Vs Colombia In The World Cup

After England's last group game was a bit of a damp squib, we're now down to the nitty gritty of the tournament — the knockout stages. England face Colombia on Tuesday 3 July at 7pm. Looking for somewhere to watch the match? We've got you covered.

In this list we've included a few Colombian places, of which there are many — London has a thriving Latin American community, especially in Elephant & Castle and Tottenham. So if you're supporting Colombia check out those, or perhaps you just want to sneak behind enemy lines. We won't judge.

La Bodeguita, Elephant & Castle

When Colombia play, La Bodeguita comes alive. Check out this video from a group stage game for proof. If Colombia score, you'll be able to hear the noise from here in Wembley.

Free entry, booking recommended

Flat Iron Square, Borough

The weather forecast is looking decent, so why not watch the match in the open air at Flat Iron Square. The Bankside street food market will be showing the England game on every one of its large screens, and you won't have far to go for refreshments. Some of Team Londonist watched a couple of earlier, non-England games here, and it gets busy, so get there well in advance.

Free entry, no bookings — first come, first served.

Pueblito Paisa Cafe, Seven Sisters

The other district of Colombian London will be just as excited for this match. We visited the market that Pueblito Paisa is part of a few years back, and it was like being transported straight to Bogota. The cafe regularly shows games from the Colombian domestic league, so you don't even need to ask whether they'll screen this.
Free entry, no booking

Tropicana Beach Club, Covent Garden

At this particular Club Tropicana, drinks aren't quite free, but there are happy hour deals throughout the match, along with live entertainment and surround sound.
Free entry, booking required

Peckham Levels

Watch the game along with This Fan Girl, a community for female football fans to meet-up and share their passion. Everyone is welcome, and Peckham Levels has plenty of screens, bars and food stalls to help you enjoy the game.
Free entry, just turn up.

Jerusalem Bar & Kitchen, Fitzrovia

Jerusalem Bar & Kitchen is showing every World Cup match, including this one, on two projectors. You'll have to book ahead if you want in on the burger and beer for £10 deal, or eight bottles of beer for £20.
Free entry, booking advised.

Gabeto, Camden

Another place where loyalties lie with Colombia rather than England, expect a party atmosphere at Gabeto in Camden, with Latin DJs before and after the match.
Possibly ticketed (tbc), booking required.

Lost Rivers, Elephant & Castle

Thanks to its location, Lost Rivers is Colombia fans only, so expect a sea of yellow shirts for the big match. Tickets include a pint on entry.
Tickets £5, booking required.

Camden Market

Camden Market

Camden's iconic market has its own big screen, surrounded by food stalls from around the world. So if you want to get a taste of Colombia pre-match, try Maize Blaze before you settle into your deckchair. Or if you're sticking with England all the way, go for some Pie & Mash courtesy of Young Vegans, who are offering a pie to deckchair delivery service during the game.
Free entry, just turn up

Beer Merchants Tap, Hackney Wick

A new addition to our pub guide, Beer Merchants Tap in Hackney Wick has transformed its back room into a Football Beer Hall with capacity for 80 people. Half the tables are bookable, the other half are first come first served on the day.
Free entry, booking recommended.

Boxpark Croydon and Shoreditch

There are free priority tickets to both BoxPark venues, but you can still turn up on the night and hope you can get a decent view of the screen, and take part in the ensuing madness if England score.
Free entry, just turn up

Fat Ronaldo's

Fat Ronaldo's — named after the legendary Brazilian — is the event taking over warehouse nightclub Egg, with six indoor screens, plus one on the outdoor terrace, plus pizzas and beer. A £10 ticket includes a pint or Pimm's, while £20 will reserve you an area, plus the drink and a pizza.
Tickets £10-£20, advance booking required.

Pitch Stratford

This one will undoubtably sell out fast, so get your act together quick if you want to guarantee yourself a ticket. There will be many HD TVs along with bountiful food and drink on offer.
£5, booking required

The Water Poet, Spitalfields

Our go-to pub for any big event, The Water Poet will be showing the match on nine different screens throughout the pub and garden, including an enormous screen in the bar. Tables are bookable, but if you're making last minute plans, the size of the place makes it one of your best turn-up-and-hope-there's-space options.
Free entry, booking a table recommended

The Roadhouse, Covent Garden

This Covent Garden bar is going all out with happy hours, drinks deals, burgers and four giant screens, plus live bands before and after the match.
Free entry, table booking recommended.
