Update: Apparently there are plans to have a 27 ft screen on Granville Street to watch the world cup final live. As I type talks are going on with the COV.
Commercial Drive, the capital of East Van and the centre of counter culture in Vancouver, is also one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in all of North America. The diversity of “The Drive” is what makes it perfect for viewing the World Cup as nations compete for what many say is the greatest trophy in sport. If you want to watch the 2010 World Cup South Africa in Vancouver, then Commercial Drive is the only place to be in the Lower Mainland.
Top 5 Places to Watch the World Cup on Commercial Drive:
1. Caffé Roma Sports Bar (1510 Commercial Drive)
4. Portugese Club of Vancouver (1144 Commercial Drive)
