DES MOINES, Iowa (Nov. 7, 2022) — The Des Moines Menace and Pro Iowa, the initiative to bring professional soccer to Iowa, invite Iowans to attend a series of international watch parties featuring USA, Mexico and other national teams. Just as the World Cup brings together the soccer community around the globe, these events will unite central Iowans that share a love for the world's game via free watch parties at local establishments.
The family-friendly watch parties will begin with the USA vs. Wales match on Nov. 21 at Flix Brewhouse in Des Moines. The organizations will also be highlighting Mexico’s matches as well as a special opportunity to watch Germany take on Spain at Hessen Haus. Menace and Pro Iowa will announce more watch parties as the tournament progresses and will conclude with a watch party on Dec. 18 for the final match.
The watch parties are open-house style. Reservations are not required to attend but are encouraged. Those who register for watch parties will automatically be entered into a sweepstakes to win prizes including $100 gift cards from host locations as well as a 65-inch flat screen TV from Hisense. Sweepstakes winners will be announced on Dec. 18 prior to the championship match. Additionally, one more 65-inch flat screen TV from Hisense will be reserved for a winner who attends the Dec. 18 final event in person.
A complete list of watch parties follows. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase at each event location depending upon the establishment’s availability.
