In 2010 it was awesome. Looks like viewing the World Cup at Dupont Circle is coming back for 2014 (knock wood, knock wood) – ‏@AaronDeNu tweets:

“Officially announced intentions to bring World Cup Soccer to Dupont Circle @ #ANC2B. FIFA paperwork submitted & NPS arrangements underway…”

Ed. Note: USA! USA! and if USA doesn’t advance – Allez Les Bleus!!

    I hope this happens. The only downside will be watching the USMNT getting drubbed in the Group of Death.

    Go USA. Hope they got the permits in order and paid the rights fees this time. Didn’t they have a bit of trouble last time around?

    It was pretty fun last time, albeit a bit crowded for my liking. After the game was over it was depressing. The spectators turned Dupont Circle into a garbage dump. Let’s not let that happen this year.

    This is great news. Go Ghana!

    I LOVE that soccer (aka real football) is building a fan base here in the US. That pic brings back memories of one of my favorite days here in DC — Spain’s winning the World Cup and all of us celebrating in the Circle. Awesome day! Can’t wait for Brazil 2014 and watching them at my favorite haunts in DC (Elephant & Castle, Nellie’s, Lucky Bar and more).

    Even if you are still not wild about the sport, speaking from experience, you can still enjoy this event. Chants of ‘USA’ still resonate from the match with England.

    I was part of the organizing crew for the last viewing party. Not sure which was more frustrating to deal with, FIFA or the National Park Service. And yeah, people were absolute pigs (our crew literally had to pick up everything or be charged. Park was cleaner at the end that when we started).
