Everyone needs a good place to watch Iceland smiting the world. If you’re in Reykjavík, here are some good places to see the drama unfold. The smiting begins at 4pm GMT when Iceland take on the yodelling country folk of Austria.
In Public: There’s a special “UEFA Fanzone” area at the Ingólfstörg square where games will be shown. Apparently, the aim is to recreate the terrace atmosphere of France right in the heart of downtown Reykjavík. They better have imported some cheese though, because seriously, the stuff in Bónus is some weak shit.
In a Bar: There are some sports bars in Reykjavík—Bjarni Fel, The English Pub and American Bar are three of the main ones, all located on Bankastræti. But pretty much every bar is probably going to be screening the games. Check with your favorites for their schedule.
At the Cinema: All the Euro 2016 games will also be shown at Gamla Bíó, the converted opera house and cinema that’s more recently been used as a music venue. Entry is free for most games—but not Iceland’s group games, which are ticketed at 5,000 ISK with snacks, seats and refreshments included.
On TV: Iceland’s national broadcasting service, RÚV, will be screening games on RÚV2, presented by Haukur Harðarsson.
