There’s nothing quite like the communial atmosphere generated by watching a major sporting event in a crowded bar. Whether it’s a weekly football fixture, a bigger event like the World Cup or the Olympics, seeing the action with similarly passionate fans helps elevate the action to the next level. With the Rugby World Cup now in full swing, it’s time you got to know the Hong Kong’s best sports bars better.

The Globe

Soho
5 out of 5 stars

With one of the largest draught beer selections in the city and a menu replete with hearty favourites, the globe is tailor-made for sports. The space is peppered with loads of TVs, meaning you're not getting that ‘everyone together staring at the same screen’ experience (unless it’s cup final or the like), but it’s ideal if you want to catch a game with your mates in generally less crowded surroundings.

Champs Bar

Wan Chai

A regular home for fans of English Premiership teams – Liverpool supporters in particular – this bar offers wall-to-wall screenings across its projectors and TVs. Football is the order of the day here and the atmosphere during big games is appropriately raucous.

The Canny Man

Wan Chai

This underground Scottish pub is home to the supporters club of the mighty Glasgow Rangers. But regardless of the team you support, if you’re a Scot abroad looking to catch a game, you’ll be welcomed here with open arms.

Kennedy Town

If you're looking for something that's more than just your average sports bar, then this is the place for you. For die-hard sports fans, the bar's online schedule will indicate what's on show at what time. For those looking for some excitement, the bar also offers weekly activities such as pub quizzes and salsa classes.

Trafalgar

Wan Chai

Sports are serious business at this Wan Chai mainstay with a huge 120-inch outdoor projector and eight TV screen. There’s a schedule of everything they’re showing throughout the week on the pub’s Facebook page. Their website has a ‘sports’ tab with pictures of sportsmen on it – we told you they were serious.

Delaney’s (Tsim Sha Tsui)

Tsim Sha Tsui

Another long-standing staple having been around for more than 20 years. Delaney’s is your classic Irish boozer, replete with all the tacky flourishes and dodgy smells you would rightly expect. A great place to go to catch some rugby, although they’re not limited to egg-chasing. They have a sports schedule on their website but don’t rely on it as it’s infrequently updated. It’s best to phone ahead to check what they’re showing.

Mui Wo

Found yourself stranded in Mui Wo in need of some sports? Fear not, this South Lantau pub is home to one of the best sports bars around – Lantau or otherwise. The atmosphere’s always friendly, the food is stellar and the the setup of the bar encourages a certain sense of conviviality missing from many other sports bars.
