Watch the World Cup in DUMBO


Watch the World Cup in DUMBO


The DUMBO Improvement District brings back their epic World Cup Viewing Parties to the Dumbo Archway where hundreds of soccer fans filled the space in 2010 and 2014 to cheer on the men, and in 2015 to cheer on the women.

Two last games!


FINAL | FRANCE V ???? | JULY 15 @2PM

Settle down on the artificial turf of Dumbo’s Sands Street Plaza to watch the first few matches of the World Cup on an 80-inch screen for free. The outdoor showings will last from June 14 to July 6.

Then catch the last few games of the World’s Cup in the Archway under the Manhattan Bridge. A screen there will show the semifinal games on July 10 and 11 at 2 pm, and the final match on July 15 at 11 am. You can bring chairs and blankets, and grab food from vendors along the Archway.



Fake grass. Food delivery. It's going to be epic.

Grab lunch from Bluestone Lane, Randolph Beer, Taco Dumbo or Untamed Sandwiches -- or get it delivered -- and watch all weekday games.

These screenings are all ages, free of charge, and open to the whole community. Fans are welcome to bring picnics, blankets and chairs -- but no alcohol, and no vuvuzelas.

There’s nothing like a magical night under the stars listening to music. When that experience includes one of my favorite artists appearing in one of my favorite places in the world, it’s at the top of my bucket list.

It all came to be with a simple Facebook post.

50 years ago, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon.

On July 20, 1969, humans walked on another world for the first time in history, achieving the goal that President John F. Kennedy had set in 1961, before Americans had even orbited the Earth.
