Fifa World Cup

I’ll be in Christchurch for England’s 2nd group game in the World Cup on the 29th June, will any bars/pubs be open to watch the match at 6am? I know it’s a bit of a longshot...

Almost certain to be several, but you have go in disguise ( as a red & black supporter accidentally in the wrong pub!) we are one-eyed rugby supporters down here.

Try the Carlton on the corner of Papanui & Bealey, or #4 Mansefield Ave in Merivale, or Aikmans also in Merivale.

You might need to get an invite to a special clandestine showing, such is our love of Rugby :) Perhaps listen for non kiwi accents :)

Brad,

Don't let on that you are an England fan, the Kiwis will be unmerciful when they come to their usual sticky end.

( I know what suffering is, having been a Newcastle supporter all my life!)

Haddaway, the “Kiwis” are our rugby league team. The soccer team are called the All Whites.

I don’t think they even get an invite to the football World Cup, due to some underhand dealing with regard to zones. We used to have to only have to beat Australia for the one place for Oceania & now we have beat half of Asia as well.

Zuhai,

I was referring to the New Zealand people when I put Kiwis.

Pegasus Arms - google it and you can then register for a free ticket to any of the games (licensing laws mean it has to be a special event that you have a ticket for) I went for the miserable Euro tourny nuff said! Not bad and a few like-minded souls
