June 30 – July 15, 2018
Soccer fans, get ready to join in on the action! Telemundo Deportes in partnership with New York City Football Club (NYCFC) are bringing the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia to Rockefeller Center. Bleachers and giant screens will be set up on the plaza for the public to watch all live matches that take place from June 30 through the end of the Final on July 15. The space will open to the public on June 30 with a viewing party for the first Round of 16 matches, followed by soccer programming on the pitch, and a viewing party for NYCFC's away match against Chicago Fire at 8:30pm.
In addition to the custom-built soccer field on the plaza, fans will have the opportunity to participate in a number of soccer activities, including pick-up games, tournaments, clinics, and meet and greets with players from NYCFC.
Also taking place is a vintage soccer jersey exhibit produced in partnership with Classic Football Shirts, which will take soccer fans through the history of some of the most emblematic shirts of the last 32 years.
All activities are free and open to the public.
