Time again for UEFA EURO 2012 where 16 national soccer teams in Europe do battle to see who is supreme. This year the host countries include Poland and Ukraine. Spain is the heavy favorite with wins in both the 2010 World Cup and the UEFA Euro 2008 European Football Championship. Other powerhouse teams include the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, and Portugal.
While most NYC sports bars featuring soccer are English & Irish pubs, you will also find Czech, Russian, German, Spanish, French, and Italian restaurants and bars hosting the games as well.
Nevada Smith’s. 125 E. 11th Street, East Village, Manhattan. The most famous of all soccer bars in New York City. This NYC sports bar will be packed with screaming fans for each EURO 2012 match.
