Updated: Jan 8, 2019



Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must know by now that It’s World Cup season in Kampala and the city is buzzing!! Due to Russia’s timezone, we are lucky enough to catch the games during lunch time, Right after work and in the evening! Therefore, there’s no excuse to miss most of the games if you’re an avid soccer fan.


In Kampala almost every bar/restaurant and cable will be showing the game but these are our favourite places to catch the games on big screens and with the right food and drink specials, you’re bound to have a great time during the Football World Cup.


Side note: Apologies to those whose partners especially husbands will be coming home very late during this season. ..Tis' the beautiful game after all.


Side Side Note: These venues will be crowded so take good care of your personal belongings.
