There's no question that the World Cup grows in popularity in the U.S. as each four-year period passes, and most sports bars can be counted on to show big matches like the finals or anything involving the home team. But for the real soccer aficionados, the brave souls willing to rise at 9 am to hit the bar and cheer with their fellow fans, nothing less than a serious soccer spot will do. And so, as the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off tomorrow, we bring you
19 32 spots in San Francisco and Oakland that are showing every single one of the 64 games, whether it's early-morning or late-night, a top-seeded team or an also-ran. Unsurprisingly, many of them are Irish pubs, but you'll also find classy salumerias, craft beer bars, and food-truck parks on this list. They're listed in no particular order.
