Women’s football is a lot like men’s: the game is technically the same, the stars are memorable and the competition is fierce and addictive. Oh, and there’s nowhere better to watch it than down in your local.
But if you had free reign over all the pubs in the country, where would be best to go?
Well, from London to Glasgow, this is our run down of the best pubs across the country to watch the Women’s Euros in, starting on Wednesday.
TOCA Social, Greenwich, London
This temple to all things soccer claims to be the world’s first interactive football and dining experience, combining immersive gaming with top-notch food and drink.
The main goal (sorry) is to take part in a series of interactive games with a bunch of mates and enjoy a little healthy competition.
And for the Euros, you can book your own private box to watch a screening of the matches in comfort with up to 20 friends, from £350 (includes a keg of 14 pints of beer).

The Grand Central, Brighton
Something for the whole crowd (Picture: Supplied)
Moments from the railway station, this opulent building houses its own theatre, among other things.
But once the Euros kick off on Wednesday with England v Austria at Old Trafford, the real drama will be taking place on the TV screens, so settle in to watch with a pint or three and order from the crowd-pleasing menu – anything from chicken wings to battered haddock, via plant-based nachos, veggie curries and more.
The Merchant, Glasgow

A stylish contemporary bar in the heart of Glasgow’s fashionable Merchant City, this venue dazzles with high ceilings, gilded mirrors and retro columns.
Sink into a velvet-covered chair or leather banquette and catch all the action on the big screen, whether it’s with a pint or a cocktail.
The Crafty Pig, Manchester

Set in the city’s Northern Quarter, this slick craft pub has a few surprises up its sleeve, including its daily bottomless brunch from just £30.
But it’s the live football showings you’re really here for so get down, choose which big screen to watch from and cheer on those Lionesses.
