I would love to watch the FIFA World Cup in Budapest, and wonder how and where it can be done?
It is very easy to watch the FIFA World Cup in Budapest. There are lots of sports-pubs all around town that will show the matches, and during such large events, restaurants also install large TV-screens on which visitors can watch the matches. But, if you want to be sure, check out with your restaurants, or plan to visit a sports-pub instead.
You can also watch the different matches on a TV in your hotel room. The TV channel M4 in Hungary will broadcast all the matches live (for free), so turn on your TV and look for M4!
Some recommended sports-pubs in Budapest
- Champs: Dohany Utca 20
- John Bull Pub: Apáczai Csere János u. 17
- Becketts: Liszt Ferenc tér 11.
Public screening of the FIFA World Cup in Budapest
Would you like to watch the FIFA World Cup together with hundreds, and maybe thousands of others? The best place to watch the FIFA World Cup in Budapest is at the Szabadsag square (Liberty Square), located between the Hungarian Parliament and the St. Stephen’s Basilica. Here you will find two large screens, and it is an amazing place to watch the matches. Besides that, you will normally find a large screen next to the Allee mall, but we haven’t got it confirmed yet if it will be so in 2018 as well.
Watch the World Cup online
If you want to watch the FIFA World Cup online on your tablet, telephone or computer, visit mediaklikk.hu, click ELO in the right corner (upper) and press M4. You can then see the free live stream of all the matches.
But, if you miss the English speaking commentators, you can also watch the FIFA World Cup on BBC/ITV online, or maybe on German TV, Swiss TV, or Dutch TV online. It might be a bit more complicated, but you can read more on how to stream the FIFA World Cup online here.
Enjoy watching the FIFA World Cup in Budapest!
