World Cup Watch Parties Are Back

Sporting Kansas City and the Kansas City Power & Light District are partnering to host official World Cup watch parties at KC Live! and No Other Pub throughout the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar from November 20 to December 18.

Fans of all ages are invited to come cheer on their country alongside fellow soccer supporters and take part in a tradition that has earned Kansas City recognition as the Soccer Capital of America. Dating back to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, KC Live! at the Power & Light District has garnered international attention as one of the nation’s largest and most vibrant World Cup watch party locations.

KC Live!, the 25,000-square foot multi-level entertainment block in the heart of downtown Kansas City’s Power & Light District, will be the area’s premier watch party destination for United States and Mexico matches. World Cup broadcasts for both national teams will be shown live on the theater-sized LED screen, which stretches 40 feet wide and 18 feet high. Match commentary will play throughout the covered outdoor venue in English for USMNT matches and in Spanish for El Tri matches.

Tickets for admission to the watch parties are free and available to reserve in advance via SeatGeek at the links below. Entry to the events will be on a first-come, first-served basis beginning two hours prior to kickoff until venue capacity has been reached. Ticketholders are advised to arrive early and enter KC Live! via Walnut Street.

Food and drink specials will be available throughout the World Cup – including $6 wells, $25 domestic beer buckets and 50% off nachos -- and attendees can enter to win giveaways including Sporting KC prizes.
