FIFA World Cup 2022: 5 pubs in Manchester to watch England matches and how to book - including Road to Victory

The World Cup is now just around the corner, exciting avid England supporters up and down the country. When an international tournament comes around the nation is often brought together in a way quite unlike any other - as seen recently by the Lionesses’ glorious success at the Women’s European Championship.

Many will associate the World Cup season with meeting up with friends and family to watch games, often in beer gardens throughout the months of June and July. But this year things are expected to be very different, as the tournament - being held in Qatar - kicks off in November instead.

Unless fans are willing to brave one of the coldest months of the year, we may not see as many lining benches as usual. But one thing that is for sure is England fans will find some way of celebrating the action - whether that be by wrapping up warm or heading to inside venues.

With this in mind, we’ve taken a look at the best pubs around Manchester to get in the World Cup spirit. If England bring it home - or rather go home in embarrassing fashion - heading down to a local will make it all the more memorable.
