You can watch the World Cup from the beach this weekend

Even die-hard soccer fans will admit to being inconvenienced by the World Cup. There’s been little interruption to our usual work and brunch routine thanks to the insane number of restaurants, bars and local spots showing the games, but there’s one thing we’ve been missing since this whole FIFA thing took over our lives: our beloved beaches.

Keeping up with matches has meant less time on the water—until now anyway. In a very Miami marketing move, outdoor advertising company Ballyhoo Media is broadcasting this Saturday’s matches from a massive screen atop its 58-foot boat headed for the Haulover Sandbar. Watch Sweden take on England at 10am and Russia play against Croatia at 2pm from your yacht, paddleboard, canoe or whatever seafaring vessel you decide to drop in the shoreline or while huddled in waist-deep water downing a delicious shawarma.

Should your favorite team lose this weekend, you will have worked on your tan which is more than you’ve done at your day job since this whole thing started.
