If your couch doesn’t bring you enough excitement when watching the football, head on down to one of these spots to cheer on your World Cup team.
The 2014 World Cup games kicked off this morning with Brazil vs. Croatia (if you didn’t know, Brazil won!) and King George Sqaure was the place to be.
6am doesn’t sound like an ideal time to be freezing out in the open in the middle of the city, but for the opening match the Square was alive with Brazilian music, dance, capoeira performances and of course, the live showing of the game.
You’ll be able to watch all games live that Australia is playing in, as well as the finals at King George Square for free.

If the family-friendly situation isn’t your thing, the Treasury Casino will be open 24/7 during the Cup, showing all games live on their big screen in the LiveWire Bar.
You can also fuel up pre or post-game with a half price ‘Big Brekky’ at the Kitchen.
The Treasury is running a ‘show us your goal face’ competition with the major prize being a VIP World Cup experience for you and three mates worth $1900.

The Pig’n’Whistle Riverside is also doing cheap breakfasts and live broadcasts of the games — but be warned, Queensland lock-out rules still apply so you’ll need to get in before 3am to avoid an annoying argument with venue security.
