World Cup: Where to watch football in Melbourne

Melbourne’s AAMI Park will open its doors to football fans as one of three live sites in the Victorian capital where the blockbuster match between Argentina and the loose football match will take place on Sunday morning (Australian time).

The Victorian government announced on Saturday that round 16 of the World Cup will be screened at three live sites in Melbourne.

The match will be screened again at Fed Square, which has drawn football-loose fans to the first three World Cup games.

Prime Minister Dan Andrews announced on Saturday that AAMI Park will open at 5 a.m. with free admission and spectators will be able to watch the game on the big screen from the grandstands.

The match will also be transferred to Cheltenham’s Victoria Golf Club before play begins at the Australian Open that morning.

The match against Argentina, which will determine which team advances to the quarterfinals, will be played on the big screen in the village of the course.

The first 500 people through the gate get free entry and are allowed to stay for that day’s Australian Open.

“As thousands of football fans flock to Melbourne’s CBD again this Sunday, we will be adding more live sites where football fans can watch football’s historic World Cup match against Argentina,” said Andrews.

“This is Australia’s best ever World Cup performance and we want as many people as possible to enjoy the on-field action in Qatar and cheer on our side.”

Live sites have opened in cities across Australia as the Socceroos enter the knockout stage.

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet announced on Thursday that Tumbarong Park in Darling Harbor will become a live site for the city and public transport will be free throughout the city on Sundays from 4am to 12pm.

Brisbane fans can’t miss watching the match live on the big screen. Mayor Adrian Shriner announced that the game will be screened at King George Square and Queens Street Mall on Friday. 4:30 am on Sunday.
