After a draw against Wales earlier this week, the U.S. will battle the Brits in its next FIFA World Cup match against England Friday.

Team USA’s 1-1 tie against Wales Monday only adds to the mounting pressure as the U.S. prepares to play a much more challenging team, which should make for good viewing at several watch parties happening in Lexington.

Friday’s match starts at 2 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, and we’ve compiled this guide to where you can watch the game live.

This list isn’t exhaustive, and if you won’t be in town or just prefer to watch at home, there are other ways to watch World Cup play. Here are a few recommendations.
