Thousands of opportunity for fandom.

The World Cup In Dumbo

The summer of soccer. 


June & July in France

The 2019 Women's World Cup was epic. Hundreds came out to cheer on Team USA from day one–we showed the entire tournament in the Archway on a 80" TV–and thousands packed the Archway to watch the USA beat France in the Quarters, England in the Semis, and the Netherlands in the Final on the big screen.

Every TV station in NYC came out to cover #DumboWorldCup–CNN, FOX Sports, Fox 5, CBS, NBC, ABC, NY1– plus it garnered a lot more press, including a full spread in the New York Times and so much more.


"The Best NYC Bars for Watching the 2019 Women’s World Cup: Well, this isn’t quite a bar. It’s a venue under the Manhattan Bridge that will hold watch parties for the U.S.World Cup games. The games will be broadcast on an 80-inch screen, and there will be some fake grass to sit on, too." - New York Times

"Cheer on the phenomenal athletes in the Women’s World Cup final match on Sunday. Watch the action with fellow fans in a community environment that’s not a bar under the archway in Dumbo, where the acoustics are great, the breeze is cool, and the grass is fake (hey, no ants)." - What Should We Do

“We wanted to watch the game somewhere special, wanted to be around other people who were excited about the game,” - ProSoccer USA

"It's not a bar, but the soccer watch party spot is the official New York Times endorsed location as the best venue to watch team U.S.A.'s journey. With an 80-inch screen and fake grass to sit on, it's a fun viewership experience." - Patch


June & July in Russia

Thousands packed the Archway to watch France vs Belgium and Croatia vs England semi finals, and to cheer on France vs. Croatia in an exciting World Cup Final!

#DumboWorldCup garnered intense media attention – from Thrillist, AM New York, Metro, and Brooklyn Paper to name a few – and landed the Archway on TV, with spots on Fox 5, CBS Sunday Morning and WNBC.


June & July in Canada

Hundreds of excited fans gathered in the Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge to cheer on the USA Woman's Soccer team to their third World Cup win! Plus, NY1 broadcast live from the Archway.

IT WAS EPIC! In Summer 2014, the DUMBO BID partnered with ESPN and Rooftop Films to show eight days of live World Cup games on a giant 20ft screen under the Manhattan Bridge. World Cup under the Archway garnered global media attention — The New York Times, CNN, CBS, BBC, Al Jazeera, The Paris Review, Deadspin, to name a few — and attracted thousands of cheering fans from across the tri-state region.
