With the Matildas taking the FIFA World Cup by storm, the Advertiser has collated the best spots in the Kimberley to watch our girls take on England tomorrow night.

Multiple venues around the Kimberley are going all out to broadcast the Matildas World Cup semi-final clash against England on Wednesday night, as the game shapes up to be the marquee Australian sporting event of the year.

Players were mobbed as they left their hotel in Brisbane and again on arrival in Sydney as Matildas fever sweeps Australia in a fashion unfamiliar to so many team members who have spent much of their career kicking balls with “no one watching”.

Other codes have shifted game times so as to not clash with the Matildas, live sites are expanding around the country and there’s a likely public holiday if they win it all.

The Roebuck Bay Hotel and Pearler’s Bar will both be streaming the Matildas game live on big screens from 6pm in partnership with the Broome Soccer Association.

Divers Tavern will also be cheering on the Matildas with the pub streaming the game on all four of their huge screens plus the many smaller screens throughout the pub.

The Mangrove has hired a massive projector screen for patrons to enjoy the game on the main deck over looking Roebuck Bay.

The Broome Surf Life Saving Club will also be showing the game in its newly rebuilt and refurbished clubhouse on both its internal and external screens with free flowing drinks available for purchase, exclusive to Broome Surf Life Saving Club members.

Derby

In Derby Matilda fans can stop by the Boab Inn to enjoy the game with the pub playing the game on free to air TV on its pub screens.

If the Boab Inn is full, soccer fanatics can also drop into the Spinifex Hotel which will also be showing the game on its bar screens.

Kununurra

In Kununurra options are thinner on the ground with the Ord River Sports Club the only venue confirming it will have the game playing on their TVs.

The sports club is also hosting the local darts competition final on the same night so soccer fans better get in quick to claim their seats.
