For those who want to cheer on the U.S. men’s national team along with hundreds of other Team USA supporters, downtown Boston will be the place to be Thursday morning.
Boston mayor Marty Walsh and the New England Revolution have partnered to host a massive outdoor watch party at City Hall Plaza for the USMNT’s pivotal 2014 FIFA World Cup matchup with Germany.
A win or a tie against the Germans would automatically send the U.S. to the knockout stage. A loss could still be enough for Team USA to advance, but only if it’s coupled with a favorable result in the Portugal-Ghana game. Check out the full breakdown of tiebreaker scenarios here.
The Rev Girls, the Battalion street team and the Revolution mascot, Slyde, all will be on hand for the event, which also will feature giveaways and other fan activities.
Fans are encouraged to arrive at 11:30 a.m. ET, with kickoff scheduled for noon. And, of course, make sure you wear your red, white and blue.
