This popular Aussie pub on Rembrandtplein boasts two large-screen TVs and a further 26 smaller screens across the pub. The place is peppered with rustic leather furniture and offers a selection of hearty pub food. Bigger games – think top-five Premier League teams – are typically shown with English commentary.
Belushi's is one of Amsterdam's go-to sports bars, with its multiple big-screen TVs and projectors. They're known to show an impressive array of international sports; highlights include Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Championship, League Cup, Rugby Union, Rugby League and NFL games.
Plan B has eight massive screens and a seemingly endless list of sports channels – meaning they're usually happy to take requests (especially on quieter days). They also have darts, table tennis and pool facilities to tide you over at half time.
This cosy little Irish pub in the centre of Amsterdam has multiple high-definition TVs – complete with surround-sound speakers – for high-quality sports watching. Of course, there's Guinness on tap and an Irish breakfast on the menu – and they're even known to play GAA games, which is great for Irish visitors (and other fans of the sport).
O'Reilly's, Paleisstraat 103
This typical sports bar on Leidseplein has everything you need when it comes to watching the big game. There's a decent variety of beer and pub grub – including a traditional English breakfast – and the café even gives revellers the opportunity to watch sports outside on one of their outdoor screens. The staff are typically open to live-sports requests on less-busy days, too (they have most of the big channels.)
Café Sportpark is ideal if you want to watch the game while having a quintessential Dutch brown-café experience. Their speciality is football, but they're happy to have tennis, Formula 1 and more across their big screens. Naturally, there's a selection of local beer and a dartboard for half-time antics.
Jan van Galenstraat 130-132
Three Sisters Pub
Three Sisters is a quaint pub in the heart of Amsterdam with 27 TVs for live sports. It's a great spot for those who want to watch sports, but aren't fans of typical sports bars. The kitchen is also open until midnight, making it a great spot to chow down during those late-night boxing matches.
The Butcher Social Club in Amsterdam Noord is one of the quirkier spots to watch live sports in the Dutch capital. It gives you the chance to enjoy one of Amsterdam's hippest creative hotspots – all while chowing down on some of Amsterdam’s tastiest burgers. Or you could go all out with the game night specials: platters of ribs, wings and fries and – of course – buckets of beers. On those sad days when your team's losing, you can take your frustration out on the bar's ping-pong tables, arcade games and pinball machines (or simply drown your sorrows at the bar...)
