We’re Going Footy Mad for the World Cup

As the World Cup prepared to kick off, we asked members of the ENTERTAINER team what football means to them. Advanced warning: this video contains terrible singing, football chants and lots of laughs.  😉

And, to get you in the sporting mood, we’ve selected a handful of football-related activities to celebrate this year’s World Cup.

Corey’s Sports Bar

With so much great football on this summer, it’s essential that you know where your nearest sports bar is. Get all the live action from this year’s World Cup at Corey’s Sports Bar in Tamworth. Football, food and Foster’s lager (what more could you ask for!?)


Sports-viewing venue per excellence, Shooters has everything you might need to cheer to the top of your lungs: the vibe, the screens, the beer and even maybe the vuvuzelas. Can’t miss the burgers either!

Scottish Football Museum

Between watching football matches, why not indulge in a little history by visiting the Scottish Football Museum and Hampden Stadium Tour; Glasgow’s top sporting attraction. Discover what it’s like for players on match day and take a look at the museum’s impressive collection of sports memorabilia. Plus, the museum and stadium tour is suitable for varied age ranges, so that you can bring the whole family along!


If watching the game on TV is getting you in the mood to play some footy yourself, check out Powerplay. Powerplay provides social and competitive football for all abilities and fitness levels at over 40 locations in the UK. Getting started is easy, too, as Powerplay take care of everything: pitch hire, teams, trophies, footballs and referees. So, grab some work pals or family friends and get stuck in – it’s game on!
