CHB

For those interested in watching the 2015 Rugby World Cup this year, there are a few places around to catch your country in action. Defending champs New Zealand may be the favorites to win the Webb Ellis Cup, but hosts England won’t go down without a fight.

Twenty nations are competing in the seven-week-long tournament, which culminates at the final at Twickenham Stadium in London on October 31st (November 1 local time).

While the times of the matches are eight hours ahead of England, some bars around the city will stay open into the wee hours to let you catch all the action.

Where to watch the games

Gwanganli

Beached Bar – The best bar for rugby in Busan. Will show almost all the games, and if you are an All Blacks fan, you are in luck. Kiwi owned and operated, there are drink specials when the All Blacks play.

Haeundae

The Wolfhound – Also a great place to watch the games. Almost all will be played and you can enjoy the good menu as well.

Sharky’s – Will probably be showing most of the early games, and there’s plenty of other options to do if the game is not your thing.

Kyungsung

Eva’s Ticket – Known more for American sports, if you ask they will likely oblige to show the early games live as well and possibly late on the weekends.

PNU 

The Basement – The only bar in PNU showing the games that we know of. Great place to enjoy the games.
