Program Description

Event Details

San Diego Public Library invites you to watch the World Cup on our big screens! 

On Monday, December 5th join us to view the Round of 16!

The FIFA Football World Cup is contested every 4 years by the men's and women's national football (soccer) teams of countries.  It's the most widely viewed and followed sporting event in the world. Held for the first time in the Middle East, in Qatar, in the fall instead of the usual summer to avoid the extreme heat for players.

Four SDPL library locations will each broadcast live a total of 20 matches including the quarter and semifinals during library open hours at the Central, City HeightsLinda Vista, and Pacific Beach libraries. All matches will begin at 11:00 am.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup will be in 2023 in Australia and New Zealand.  Unlike the men's, the US women are the most dominant team in the world. The next men's World Cup in 2026 will be in North America, jointly hosted by the US, Mexico, and Canada.

On Mondays & Tuesdays the Pacific Beach Library opens at 11:30am.  Because World Cup matches start at 11:00am, instead of entering through the library's usual doors you may enter the Community Room directly from the doors that face the Cass Street Plaza, until the library opens at 11:30am.
