World Cup Soccer action in Hoboken

6/25/2010 Update:

Final 16 World Cup teams almost set

Here’s how the list of 16 teams is shaping up for the start of the first World Cup knockout round. To become 2010 World Cup Champions – you just need to win four more matches in a row.

Too bad for defending champs Italy – Did your country’s team survive so far?

Big World Cup games on Friday, June 19th

Some interesting games coming up tomorrow morning and afternoon. Of course, we have the four teams from Group C squaring off – which includes the United States and England.

But I’m interested to see how Germany plays. To date, they’ve scored by far the most amount of goals when they engineered the crushing defeat of Australia this past Sunday. As you can see from the photo below – Helmers’ Restaurant is proudly displaying their flag all over!

Worldwide Soccer frenzy for an entire month!

FIFA World Cup 2010 South Africa LogoWhile soccer may not be the biggest sport here in Hoboken – it sure is the most popular sport worldwide!

And starting tomorrow, June 11th through July 11th is the FIFA 2010 World Cup, which takes place in South Africa.

Teams from 32 countries will duke it out until one team is crowned 2010 World Cup Champion.

The World Cup takes place every four years – and as you might recall, Hoboken went nuts back in 2006 when Italy defeated France – “insanity” took place, to quote the Hoboken PD.

Wonder who will win this year?

FIFA in 3D High Definition, too!

Places to watch uptown and downtown

It’s understood that Mulligan’s (First St.) is the Soccer capital of Hoboken, and will probably be showing each and every game of the tournament.

For the uptown folks, you should know that Carpe Diem (14th and Grand) is also focusing on the World Cup this year as well.

And if you just enjoy looking at soccer memorabilia – then just stare in the window over at Viola Vita – who appropriately dressed their display window up to honor the global sports phenomenon.

Enjoy the games, Hoboken!

Tomorrows game to watch US Vs England 2:30 PM.

Here is a great calendar that breaks down the groups and the schedule


I remember back in the 90s. There was a bar across the street from Path. It was called The Widow McShea’s. It’s either the newsstand or the Dunkin Donuts now. Ireland was playing. A group of trashed game watching customers spilled out on the sidewalk in front of the bar. I had just gotten off work. I was passing by. A trashed customer accidently bumps into me and spills his beer all over my dress. Ronnie the bar owner sees this and comes outside. Ronnie invited me in the bar for free drinks. Ronnie made the trashed gentleman leave. Ronnie also paid the cleaning bill for my dress. It ended up being a great evening. I felt sorry for the gentleman that Ronnie put out of the bar though.
