If there's one thing to know about Salt Lakers, it's that we love soccer and FIFA World Cup watch parties.

Zoom in: Real Salt Lake defender Bryan Oviedo, a San José native, will compete for Costa Rica's national team this year.

Here are a couple of places to watch the World Cup tournaments in Salt Lake City.

1. Beer Bar/Bar X

Duncan Burrell, co-owner of the joint bars, told Axios the crew has been preparing for this year's tournaments for a long time.

When: Starting this Sunday, they plan to open by 9am for all games, with the exception of Thanksgiving.

  • A large projector screen has been added inside Bar X for tournament watching. There are also four projectors inside Beer Bar, with additional TVs outside.

Details: Burell said a limited brunch menu will be offered for most games, ranging from a full breakfast ($14) to a housemade cinnamon roll ($5).

Of note: Under state law, alcohol can't be served until 10am.
