Looking for a local hot spot in Portsmouth to watch the 2014 World Cup games with fellow soccer hooligans? Here's a short list of good places to start. 

1. The Coat of Arms Pub

Located at 174 Fleet St., (right across from Gilley's for those using New England mapquest) this authentic British pub will be open for every single game starting with the opening ceremonies. You can't go wrong with a place that has a countdown clock to the start of the 2014 World Cup on their website right?

2. Ri Ra Irish Pub
