Where to Watch College Football and NFL in Boston

Watch sports, drink beer, eat wings

View as Map

Stroll into any Boston-area bar or restaurant, and it's almost guaranteed that at least a few televisions will be tuned to a Boston sports team — and plenty of the people watching will be covered in Boston sports gear.

But what if you want to cheer on a non-local team and be surrounded by likeminded fans? Now that football season has arrived, here's a collection of local bars and restaurants that host regular gatherings for fans of non-Boston college football and NFL teams, updated for the 2018-2019 season.

Each map point includes any pertinent details about the location's television configuration, as well as some sample menu items, notes on the booze selection, and more. While this information is kept as up-to-date as possible, we recommend checking in directly with your alumni or fan group to confirm details before heading over. We’ve linked to websites, Facebook groups, and other relevant sources when possible.

Did we miss your team? Hit up the tipline if you know of another game watch spot that should be included here.

A version of this map was first published in September 2014. It is updated each August or September, with occasional small updates throughout each football season. The date of the most recent update appears above.
