Excitement for this year’s FIFA World Cup is infectious, and Western New York is definitely catching the fever. Happening every four years, with a total of 32 teams and 64 matches, the World Cup is a great way to experience the excitement and pride of the many different countries participating.

Soccer has grown in popularity over the years, so instead of watching it at home, the Buffalo Soccer Council has a list of locations that will be hosting viewing parties, so that everyone can get in on the fun. Most games have a start time of noon, 3PM and 6PM.
