The Rugby World Cup is almost here! This Friday, the England team launches the sport event of the year in the first match against Fiji at 9pm (GMT+1) at the legendary Twickenam stadium. That’s right, this year England was chosen by IRB to host the World Cup, so fans from around the world are preparing for battle!
For those who won’t get the chance to spend a week-end in Twickenham, there are lots of other ways to experience the matches ‘EN LIVE’! This is where the many English Pubs in Bordeaux come in handy, because we all know that they are the real pros of sport broadcasting and wild crowds!
What’s Happening In The Pubs ?
Well, The Houses of Parliament, HMS Victory and The Market Tavern are warming up for a whole month and a half of RUGBY !
The exciting atmosphere of great rugby games will be at the three infamous drinking holes of Bordeaux! Here’s what we’ve got in store to make this RWC the best one ever :
- The HMS Victory has a new HD TV screen on the terrace for the big games, as well as the many TV’s and two HD Big Screens inside.
- The newly opened Market Tavern with it’s three HD TV Screens will be serving food.
- ALL 3 PUBS will be decorated with the colors of the 20 participating countries AND the staff will be wearing their TEAM’S JERSEY (yes, it’s an international staff).
- There will be goodies and live music after the games… In short, the field is ready for the scrum!
What Are We Drinking ?
All three pubs are introducing their “Rugby World Cup Passport” !!
Every time you use your RWC Passport during the matches, you’ll get a special offer :
- Buy 4 pints of Carlsberg or Magner’s and get the 5th Pint FREE!
- Plus, the same passport works in ALL 3 PUBS, during ALL the games of RWC.
- And if you come by all the 3 pubs with the same passport, you’ll get a free shot too!
In short, there’s no need to travel across the Channel to feel the vibrations of the grandstands and hear the screams of the crowds. You already have your seats and drinks ready right here in Bordeaux!
