Avaya Stadium in San Jose hosted a FIFA viewing party on July 10. The stadium provided a live stream of the face-off between Belgium and France along with food and refreshments at the concession stands.

Despite the warm weather, fans from around the city gathered at the stadium to cheer on their favorite teams.

The FIFA party hosted a friendly environment for fans to enjoy the game together. Many people say they enjoy sharing their love of soccer with other fans.

“It’s better than being all by yourself while watching it. At least you’re here with other people that share the same passion,” said Chris, an event attendee.

Other people simply enjoyed watching the game and being with friends and family.

“It’s an opportunity for me to kinda meet with my friends, some family members, and just to enjoy with the crowd at large, people from other parts of the city, other parts of the Bay Area to come out and enjoy soccer, the sport we all love,” said William.

The event lasted until about 1 p.m. with France moving to the finals. The Avaya Stadium will continue to host viewing parties for the remaining semifinals and finals. For more information on the upcoming viewing parties, visit the website here.
