The excitement is really ramping up over in Russia now that we’re down to the final two teams left in the FIFA World Cup 2018! Croatia and France will be testing their soccer skills to the limit in the finals happening this week to try and score glory and a very big trophy on Sunday 15 July (11pm here). We’ve found the fam-friendly places showing the match, as well as a few ‘ditch the children’ options too. So if you’ve been wondering where to watch live screenings of FIFA World Cup 2018 final in Singapore with kids, you’ve come to the right place. Who are you cheering for?
Changi Airport Terminal 3
Air con, a huge screen, comfy seating and space for the kids to run around are the name of the game over in the public area at Changi Airport Terminal 3. There’s plenty of seating, but we say get there early and make the most of the other cool activities to try with kids in the world’s best airport.

It stands to reason that an initiative that encourages Singapore to take up sports, is showing one of the biggest sporting events of the year across five of its clubs. Cheer for your favourite team at Pasir Ris, Jurong West, Toa Payoh, Woodlands and Hougang locations.
We’ve long been fans of this laid-back spot at Parkland Green, in the heart of the East Coast Park, and with a small indoor playground and plenty of open space for kiddos to run around in outside, this makes a great spot to mix the football action with a family night out.

And if you manage to get a babysitter and are ditching the kids for the event…
Where better to watch the football than in a cafe dedicated to football? The bar is part owned by Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs (Man U legends), and is the perfect spot for a night of World Cup revelry. Plenty of great grub and a huge range of beers seal the adult-night-out deal.

Nine bars and restaurants, including Harry’s Bar, Berlin’s and El Mero Mero, are covering the final around this usually sedate part of Singapore, and it’s expected to draw quite the crowd. Come in your team colours and be ready to sing all your favourite footie songs.

We caught the England v Sweden quarter final at Boat Quay and there were plenty of fun spots and excited spectators in all of the bars lining the river. Head down, pick a spot and cheer! It’s gonna get rowdy…
