Small Plates Turns Sports Bar to Kick-off 2014 World Cup

Small Plates Turns Sports Bar to Kick-off 2014 World Cup

The onset of arguably the world’s largest sporting event, the 2014 World Cup, leads to one important question: Which sports bar is best to take in the game?

Small Plates, in downtown Syracuse, has been designated as the home stomping ground of the Team USA soccer fanatics, known affectionately as the American Outlaws. A national organization comprised of over 130 chapters covering all 50 states. The Syracuse chapter was founded by a group of soccer fans, including current chapter president Steve Haller.

Haller said, “We are extremely grateful to the people and all of the establishments that have helped the Syracuse (American Outlaws) Chapter over the past years and look forward to increasing the involvement of the Syracuse community through this tournament and beyond.”

Small Plates is excited for the opportunity to host the American Outlaws and all soccer fanatics in the Syracuse community.

“We are honored to be named the host bar for the 2014 World Cup and the American Outlaws. We haven’t been open quite a year and this will be a great motivation for people to come and enjoy all Small plates has to offer,” said Andrew Belair, Small Plates General Manager.

Small Plates’ open layout and high ceilings create the perfect atmosphere for the enthusiastic soccer fans; with 17 TVs and two private rooms it should be easy for everyone to get a great view. The restaurant will be showing every game of the 2014 World Cup, with full audio for all Team USA games, beginning with the kick-off game on June 12th, and concluding with final game on July 13th.

Update: The USA plays Ghana at 6:00 pm today, June 16th. 

World Cup fans are invited to join The Syracuse American Outlaws to watch all matches of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil at Small Plates. The complete World Cup match schedule is available here.

“We’ll be the crazy fans in the red, white and blue, “Haller says with oblivious pride.
