World Cup Viewing Experience Held on Fosun Plaza

World Cup Viewing Experience Held on Fosun Plaza

Live World Cup matches will air on a newly installed 40-foot LED screen in the heart of downtown Manhattan.

Why duck into a dark, crowded watering hole when you can bring the whole family to an outdoor plaza to watch World Cup matches live? In partnership with the New York Red Bulls, Fosun Plaza will air live World Cup matches on the newly installed 40-foot LED screen, according to a press release. Enjoy the exciting soccer game without missing out on a second of the NYC summer air you've been waiting all year for.

During the event, which will take place on the west side of 28 Liberty, facing Nassau Street, fans can cheer on their favorite teams in real time. On days with different matches at the same time, event organizers will show one match at its discretion. These conflicts will be announced on 28 Liberty's website, so viewers can plan ahead.

In addition to viewing opportunities, the players from the New York Red Bulls will make special appearances. There will also be a soccer field set up for free play, pubic tournaments, and more. Soccer enthusiasts are encouraged to arrange a pick-up game with kids, family, and friends. 

"We are excited to partner with New York Red Bulls to celebrate the 2018 World Cup," said Bo Wei, chief executive representative of Fosun Group in the U.S. and vice president of Fosun Property Holdings. "We are pleased that Fosun Plaza will be a central location where where soccer fans from all over the city can enjoy an array of different soccer-related appearances and activities while experiencing the thrill of the World Cup."
