The England-Germany game should be quite the thriller. Can anyone who's been around to the different venues airing matches in Kunming recommend some places to go? Jerseys, binge drinking and loud cheering is preferred.

Been to the Hump and Ganesh so far but for a couple of minor games so still no idea which place to go for some genuine WC fever.

Ganesh seems to have been pretty rowdy at times with a strong English presence. Plus, the beer 套餐s they're offering are certainly not designed to discourage binge drinking. I think it's seven bottles of imported Australian beer for 100 kuai.

I am looking forward to that game!

The Double Happyness Bar in Beichen is having a very big screen and I am going to watch the game there.

My guess: Germany - England 1:0 :-))
