World Cup Soccer at Cork Heads

Author: Cork Heads, Issue: June 2006, Topic: Sports

The big event at Cork Heads this month of course is the FIFA World cup!

We will be showing as many games as we can on a big screen at Cork Head's. So come in and support your favorite team!

The viewing of the later games (eg 4 am) will depend on how many fans are keen to watch them, so be sure and let me know if there is a game coming up you want to see!

For the 4am games you will be asked to buy a 2000 yen ticket. This will include 3 drinks to the value of 500 yen (ie Beer, wine, soft drinks, coffee, etc.)

Oh! and breakfast will be available Too!

World Cup Soccer Schedule

To make life simple for us Gaijins, the Japanese have scattered the world cup games over only 8 different TV channels. (Games only broadcasted BS1-hi could be a problem, but I must confess that I don't know anything about my own cable TV).

Everybody is free to attack, bribe, manipulate and threaten Martin about which games are projected on the big screen in Cork Heads, as long if it does not interfere with any Dutch games and the posters he already has made!
