Delhi pubs, restaurants entice crazy World Cup fans
You need not fly down to Brazil to absorb the excitement of the FIFA World Cup - giant screens at Delhi pubs and restaurants will capture it for you with awesome food and drinks to go with the thrills and spills of the game.
Teams from 32 countries will compete for the one of most coveted crowns in world sport, football's showpiece event, from 12 June- 13 July.
Many popular pubs and restaurants in the city would be screening the matches live, offering some irresistible deals to tempt the football buffs.
‘We will be showing the 9.30 pm matches live on our television sets and with some authentic Italian food. We have an offer for beer guzzlers - buy three and get two free’, Virender Singh Vohra, manager at Baci restaurant in Sunder Nagar market told IANS.
Both the fans and the restaurateurs are disappointed that they cannot have more fun as the scheduling of the matches is in a time zone that doesn't help public viewing here beyond midnight.
The World Cup has five time slots in India - 9.30 pm(IST), 12.30 am, 1.30 am, 3.30 am and 6.30 am.
Most pubs and restaurants in Delhi shut by midnight, latest by 1 am, so that leaves the restaurateurs with just one time slot where they can show matches live.
‘Last time in South Africa the timings were perfect. We put up a projector screen and showed all the top matches live but this year unfortunately most matches are taking place in the wee hours of the day’, Trilok Singh, manager at Gulmohar Sports Club, said.
