USA takes on Belgium Tuesday in the World Cup and in San Diego, fans can watch the soccer match in a special viewing area at a mini park within downtown's Petco Park.
The San Diego Padres and Mayor Kevin Faulconer have announced the Park at the Park will be open to the public free of charge for the 1 p.m. World Cup match.
Thus, local soccer fans skipping work for the day or perhaps taking a long, late and leisurely lunch break will have a comfortable outdoor space to watch the big game.
Not to mention a pretty sweet big screen from which to take in the sports action.
The LED video display is located directly behind the batter’s eye in the Park at the Park area. The screen is 17 feet high by 29 feet wide, so those normally teeny, tiny soccer players will look larger than life.
The East Village and Gaslamp Gates to the park will open at 12:30 p.m. Once the game ends, the Park at the Park will quickly close so stadium crews can prepare for Tuesday night’s Padres home game against the Cincinnati Reds.
Discounted parking for the soccer game screening will be available in both the Tailgate and Parcel C parking lots. Some select concessions will also open in the Park at the Park area, including the beer garden, so World Cup fans can enjoy some snacks and refreshments, too.
Sounds like a "gooooooal," right?
