Jose Lara SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) — Wolf’s Biergarten opened a couple of years ago with a very peculiar slogan — “Soccer, Beer and Sports.”
Voted the second best soccer bar in the country, it is what many people in the city have called the place to be for soccer fans in Syracuse when there’ a big soccer game. With the Women’s World Cup taking place this year, people are excited to go and support the world champions.
“Yeah, I was surprise to see too many people in a Tuesday afternoon, but plenty of people came to support our country,” said bar employee Zach Sullivan. “It is the first year that we are open for this big event and to see too many people here lets me know soccer is bigger now than what it was before.”
The U.S. Women’s team beat Thailand in a record setting game 13-0, the biggest victory in any World Cup game, including men’s soccer. People attended the bar nonstop until the game ended when most of the people in the bar started chanting.
“I love coming here with my friends, we are big soccer fans and to feel the atmosphere and feel like we are at the stadium is just the best,” said Michael Sage, an avid soccer fan.
The USA team continues the world cup on Sunday when they face Chile in their second game of the group stage.
“We expect to have more people on Sunday, that’s for sure,” said Sullivan.
