San Francisco Civic Center Park

SAN FRANCISCO—As the competition heats up, the San Francisco Recreation and Park department today announced an additional free, live FIFA Women’s World Cup viewing party to be held this Friday, June 28.

This bonus screening, held in partnership with the San Francisco Parks Alliance, will be held at noon at Sue Bierman Park at Washington and Drumm streets along the Embarcadero. It will feature the USA vs. France quarterfinals on the big screen, food trucks, soccer-related activities, and family fun.

“We are so proud to support the incredible U.S. women’s national soccer team, both for their excellence on the field and their position at the forefront of gender pay equity,” said San Francisco Recreation and Park Department General Manager Phil Ginsburg. “It’s a powerful experience to cheer alongside hundreds of community members gathered together to celebrate women’s sports.”

The addition of Friday’s screening was made possible by the Yours in Soccer Foundation. It will be the second of five viewing parties in San Francisco parks. Other upcoming dates include the July 2 and July 3 semifinals, both at noon at Sue Bierman Park; and the July 7 final at 8 a.m. at Civic Center Plaza.
