Many of you have asked, so we wanted to report that we have been told there will not be a viewing USA Belgium World Cup match today at 4pm. Related Posts: No Related Posts
Our sources tell us there will unfortunately not be a World Cup viewing today in Madison Square Park of the USA versus Germany match at noon. For those who attended the big screen viewing of the USA versus Portugal match, you know that it was awesome – one of the best events ever in Madison Square Park (until the final goal by Portugal in the last 30 seconds of extended time). They even covered the crowd live on ESPN as one of the only crowd coverage spots in the US. Right here in our park!
The same source says they may show the next game if the USA is fortunate enough to advance. In case you missed it, here is some video of the crowd at the last viewing in Madison Square Park. (Which was hosted by the Madison Square Park Conservancy and Established in 20/20).
The US men’s soccer team faces Portugal in a huge game in the World Cup today at 6pm, and they will be screening it live on a jumbo TV screen on the big lawn at Madison Square Park. It’s free to attend and kicks off at noon with Belgium playing Russia, followed by South Korea versus Algeria (3pm) and then the USA versus Portugal match (6pm).
If you have not been following, the US team beat Ghana in their first game, and if they win today they go on to the next round. Even if they lose or tie they are not eliminated, but a win here would be huge. They face a Portugal team that has one of the top 3 soccer players in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo. Can the US contain him? Should be a great match.
We have even heard that ESPN will be broadcasting live from the park and up-linking crowd shots. (There will also be a poster giveaway at 3pm).
The event is brought to you by the Madison Square Park Conservancy and Established in 20/20.

One story line worth following is whether Peyton Manning will make plays against […]
