Many of Greater Brockley's leading venues are stepping up to the challenge. Some are studiously avoiding the whole thing. Here's a run-down of some of the best options. We'll add others as they are suggested.
Will be showing all the games except for the 11pm kick-offs. Nice sofas to watch a game from if you can bag one.
The Royal Albert
The team have bought themselves a nice posh telly specially for the occasion and will be showing "almost all World Cup games" being shown - with a goal scorer sweepstake for each game.
Showing the games and promises even to have the sound on!
The Ladywell Tavern
Promises to show as much World Cup football as humanly possible and that there will be happy hour specials during every England game.
The Ravenbsourne Arms
Will be screening games and kicks-off the World Cup with a night of Samba and BBQ tonight.
The Deptford theatre is screening nine World Cup group games in their cafe, with beer and food by Flippin Cow burgers.
The Wickham Arms
Has a late licence to show games in May [sic].
The Hill Station
Telegraph Hill's community hub is hosting an opening night party tonight, plus showing any games featuring England or Brazil.
In Honor Oak, they'll be showing all the games, and have a late license for Saturday's England match.
The Crofton Park bar, which has already courted controversy by hosting soft-play mornings for toddlers, has vowed it will remain a "World Cup-free zone" although it will substitute dancing for football, with a range of music nights during the tournament.
