15 places to cheer on the U.S. women's soccer team in the World Cup final

The Women's U.S. National Team will hopefully end this long Fourth of July weekend with an extra dose of patriotic excitement as they take on the Netherlands in the World Cup final for their second straight global championship.

But why watch the big game and drink your invisible tea alone at home when you can who that with fellow fans? Thankfully, a lot of local bars had the same thought and are opening up early on Sunday morning for the 10 a.m. match – plus some other fun bonuses.

Here are 15 places where you should kick it on Sunday for the World Cup final. U.S.A! U.S.A! U.S.A!

1. Nomad World Pub

1401 E. Brady St.
(414) 224-8111
nomadworldpub.com

Get ready for futbol madness down on Brady Street with not one, not two but three soccer finals – the Copa America final between Brazil and Peru at 2 p.m., the Gold Cup final between the U.S. Men and Mexico at 8 p.m., and, of course, the Women's World Cup championship. With all that going on, Nomad's got no choice but to shut down Warren Avenue starting at 9 a.m. so people can drink and eat in the street – not to mention party with a DJ set from Fuzzy Logic from 4-8 p.m.

2. Old German Beer Hall

1009 N. Old World 3rd St.
(414) 226-2728
oldgermanbeerhall.com

Watch the United States give the Netherlands the boot in the World Cup final – and then get yourself a boot, as the Old World Third Street bar will offer limited edition half-liter soccer shoe boot glasses for $10, plus $5 refills, that you get to keep. Get there early, however, because they've only got 90 of these tasty collectors items.

3. Moran's Pub

912 Milwaukee Ave.
(414) 902-0148
moranspub.com

Moran's is one of the city's most famous soccer bars – so of course they're going all out for the World Cup final, featuring the game at 10 a.m., tasty food served from the Rose Mob Grill food truck, drink specials including $5 imports and $3 Tully shots, and even prizes for two lucky attendees. In case a U.S. win wasn't enough of a prize.

4. Deer District

1134 N. Vel R. Phillips Ave.
(414) 908-0401
themeccamke.com

Milwaukee's primo basketball zone will become soccer central on Sunday morning, as both The MECCA and The Deer Garden The Beer Garden will host soccer festivities featuring $3 Miller Lite taps, $5 Bloody Marys, $10 buckets of Miller Lite and obviously the Women's World Cup final – as well as the Men's Gold Cup final later in the day – plastered across its many VERY large screens. According to Deer District's Twitter account, drums and vuvuzelas are allowed, but they will enforce a very strict no stroopwafel policy.

5. Mo's Irish Pub

10842 W. Bluemound Rd.
(414) 774-9782
mosirishpub.com/wauwatosa/

Check out the Wauwatosa location for a breakfast and World Cup domination! Mo's Irish Pub will open at 9 a.m., serving up $3 Miller Lite drafts. Then, at 10 a.m., the final will kick off and the kitchen will open up, serving $6 breakfast boxties (Irish potato pancakes).

6. Three Lions Pub

4515 N. Oakland Ave.
(414) 763-6992
threelionspub.com

A party so big they have to shut down the street. Starting at 9 a.m., Three Lions Pub will shut down the street and put up a jumbtotron television screen to watch the Women's World Cup final. (Be sure to bring your own seating!) If you're nervous and need a distraction from the game, the festival will also have live entertainment, food and beverages, local vendors, a video game station for kids and a marketplace dedicated to female-owned businesses.

7. Lowlands Grand Cafes

Multiple locations
lowlandsgroup.com

Root for the U.S. or root for the Netherlands? It'll be conflicting allegiances over at the Dutch-influenced Lowlands Grand Cafes (Benelux, Hollander, Centraal and Bavaria) but there should be no conflict over whether or not you should drop by any of their many locations for the World Cup final at 10 a.m. sharp. In addition to serving up the game and surely an animated crowd for both sides, they'll also cook up a specialty Bloody Mary, quiches and other drink specials.

8. Jackson's Blue Ribbon Pub

1203 N. 10th St.
(414) 276-7271

Jackson's Blue Ribbon Pub earns the blue ribbon when it comes to throwing a World Cup final viewing party. The Downtown location will not only open up early at 9:45 a.m. before the morning match, but it'll also serve up happy hour all day – which means $2 Pabst and Miller Lite taps, $3.50 tap beers in general as well as house wines and rail cocktails, a dollar off appetizers, $10 bottomless mimosas and a Bloody Mary bar. No matter if the U.S. win or lose, you'll definitely leave the champion of Sunday Funday.

9. Who's On Third

1007 N. Old World Third St.
(414) 897-8373
whosonthirdmke.com
