Bars/PLaces to watch the Rugby World Cup!

Hello,

I've just arrived in Zurich, moving over to start post-grad studies. I am big rugby fan, and sometimes player, from the UK (Bath supporter!) wondering if anyone knows of any bars/places that might show some of the rugby world cup games?

Perhaps a bit of a long shot i know (especially given the early mornings )!

Any help much appreciated - and if anyone would like to watch an England game or two please get in touch!

Cheers, J

Hi J,

There are a few English/Irish pubs which should show the more sensibly-timed games. Depending on where you are, you could try:
Oliver Twist in the Niederdorf (nearest tram: Rathaus)
Paddy Reilly's near Paradeplatz (tram: Sihlstrasse)
McGee's at Bahnhof Wiedikon

Good luck!

Mark

If you want to continue playing, there is also a rugby club in Zurich.
