Football fever is about the grip the nation when the FIFA football World Cup kicks off in Qatar on Sunday (November 20).
Scotland may not have made the World Cup finals (again!), but that doesn't mean we can’t enjoy the action.
The first game will be Qatar v Ecuador, with both England v Iran and Wales v USA set to be played the following day (November 21).
All the games are thousands of miles away, so going to the games will not be an option for most people.
World Cup games are being shown on live television in the UK. But if you want to watch games with a group, we’ve created a list of some of the best places in Edinburgh where you can watch football live with a drink in your hand, as well as snacks to tide you over to the final whistle.
The final will take place on Sunday, December 18 at 3pm.
