I'm interested if there are any cities that are big on the World Cup in USA. I'm talking about the type of cities where there are parades and fans on the streets during the World Cup. Thing is I'm a huge fan of the WC (watched it every four years passionately since I was 6 years old), and I'd love to go to a city for the summer where I can go to bars and celebrate with other fans. I know there's a moderate football scene in Morris Park in the Bronx, and there's also a decent scene in Northwest Queens due to the South American immies, but I want to know if there are other really good options. Would love to hear from fellow football fans

Think you would get some more feedback hearing from soccer fans.

It's a big deal in Chicago. Latin American and Polish people make up half the city. I know people who would stay up late or wake up ridiculously early to watch games live. Several bars promoted the games too, like The Map Room, The Globe, and Becket's.

It's called football by 90% of the world.

Miami. Bars are packed, when Spain won people went out to the busy bar areas and celebrated on the streets and side walks. I also know some of the bigger soccer towns like Seattle, Portland and Columbus get packed bars for the U.S. games. A Spain vs. Brazil match will have a packed bar opposed to a US. vs. Uganda match. But plenty of people for the U.S. too. But the world cup is a big event in Miami.
