Where to Watch Football in Krakow
Updated: Aug 2
With the new premier league season well under way and the Euro 2020 championships just around the corner, the question on the lips of many visitors to Krakow is, ‘Where can I watch the footy?!’ Never fear, we’ve compiled a handy list of the best Sports bar in Krakow below to make sure you don’t miss a minute of the action.
This new kid on the Krakow block, only opened its doors in December 2019, but with over 30 screens showing Sky Sports live matches (with English commentary) it is sure to be a huge hit with both tourists and locals alike come match day. Located only a few minute’s walk from Krakow’s main square in the Old Town, it’s bound to attract big crowds come Euro 2020.

English football club
Offering exactly what it says on the tin, this cellar pub in the Old Town has four large, underground cavern rooms, all equipped with either a big screen or several smaller screens, making match viewing possible from every corner. The walls are kitted out with the memorabilia of different English football teams and match commentary is in English. Beer prices are standard for Krakow at around the 10zl mark and they can even serve you a pizza from the bar. What more do you need on a Super Sunday?!
Bania Luka is a popular student bar that also attracts locals and tourists due to its very cheap prices. A beer here costs just 7zl and they also serve cheap traditional Polish bar snacks like pierogi and Kielbasa sausage. At the bar they also mix up just about any flavoured vodka shot you can think of. In terms of watching sport here, there are a handful of screens dotted around the place but the main draw is the large back room fitted with a huge projector screen and ample seating space. Commentary is usually in Polish as Canal Sport, the channel that carries most the football here, is a Polish company, but the cheap prices make up for the fact that most tourists won’t understand the commentator. And anyway, “Goaallll” is the same in any language right?!

Situated just off the main square, the Bull is particularly popular with Brits on a boozy weekend, thanks to its handy location and the fact that it has outdoor seating out the front in summer. The pub itself looks more like a London boozer than a usual venue in Krakow and so lacks a little of the local charm of many other Old Town venues. That aside, they have excellent facilities for watching football. There are several screens dotted around the place showing Sky Sports and a bigger screen through the back. It can get pretty crowded in here on a weekend, so if you’re visiting with mates it might be worth phoning ahead to reserve a table.

This large beer hall is a great place for drinks and food in Krakow, serving up beers served to the table in giant tubes fitted with their own taps for you to pour a cold one for yourself as needed. They also have a big screen and a few smaller screens making this another fine choice for watching Football in Krakow.

Those visitors to Krakow who venture further than the Old Town and find themselves in the Jewish quarter of Kazimierz, can be richly rewarded with a plethora of great bars and restaurants to choose from. Amongst these are also some great places to watch football in Krakow. None better than this unassuming cellar pub, which like many venues in Krakow, is a lot bigger than it looks on the outside. Once inside you’ll find several dart boards where you can throw a few arrows while sipping on a cold beer. They also have screens showing English Premier league and Champions league football, various other matches from around Europe and they are sure to be screening Euro 2020 too.

Thanks to its huge outdoor area in summer, which was equipped in 2018 with a giant outdoor screen for watching the World Cup in the sunshine, this bar inside an old tram depot is one of Krakow’s most popular summer spots. Kitted out with deck chairs for relaxing in the sun, Stara Zajedznia is actually a micro- brewery serving up its own beers from the longest bar in Krakow. If the big screen returns for Euro 2020 (which I’m sure it will) then this is another great spot to set up camp for the day and watch the match with your mates in the sunshine.
