Good news for footy fans who were hoping to take their World Cup party outdoors this weekend: Soccer in the Circle is happening! You can watch all three first round matches taking place on Saturday – including the crucial USA-England match – on two huge screens inside Dupont Circle Park.

Here’s the schedule:

South Korea v Greece, 7:30am kickoff
Argentina v Nigeria, 10am kickoff
USA v England, 2:30pm kickoff

Note: alcohol is not permitted (hey, it’s DC, not New Orleans). But there are plenty of places to grab food near the circle, and the event also features sponsor booths and performances between matches.

Also worth noting: the Capital Pride Parade will be rolling through the same area later in the afternoon/evening, so be wary of road closures after the matches end.
