Sometimes watching the Olympics without a cheering crowd just isn’t that much fun. What if you could watch the Olympic soccer matches in a mini-stadium with a large screen along with fellow enthusiasts all within a subway ride or walk?
Upper 90 Brooklyn has turned their indoor field into a stadium for the London Olympics: with theater-style seating, an HD projection screen, and 5.1 channel surround sound, it’s a perfect place to watch Olympic Soccer! Entry is free and reservations are not required.
Upper 90 Brooklyn has invited A Child Grows and our friends to watch the Olympic soccer gold medal match between the United States and Japan- Thursday, August 9, at 2:45pm(!), at Upper 90 Brooklyn (359 Atlantic Ave at Hoyt).
