Watching Rugby - Sky TV in Stockholm

I know this is a long shot but I will be in Stockholm on January the 4th and there's a rugby match that is live on Sky TV (UK) on the Friday night.

Does anyone know of any bars / sports bars & pubs where I would be able to watch the game !?

Many thanks and regards for your help !!

Hi Dan,

I'm not a big sports fan myself but I'll try to help you out with at least one tip:

There's a chain of sports bars called O'Learys that show sports on big screens. They will probably have Sky.

But I must warn you that rugby is not that big in Sweden so they may be showing something else, on weekends there are usually a lot of local sports going on...

I suggest you contact them by email or phone to find out more. If they won't be showing the rugby they should be able to guide to some other sports bar that do.

These three are in central Stockholm, follow links for map, email and phone numbers:

O'Learys Götgatan - http://www.olearys.se/gotgatan

O'Learys Kungsholmen - http://www.olearys.se/kungsholmen

O'Learys Stockholm Centralstation - http://www.olearys.se/vasagatan

Hope this helps you out at least a bit.

There's the Southside pub on Södermalm that's popular with ex-pats. It has multiple screens and will often show several events at once. If it doesn't clash with too many major football games then they might put it on one of the small screens if you ask. Go to www.southsidepub.se for contact details. It's right outside Zinkensdam station on the red underground line.

There's also a pub call Wirströms on Gamla Stan that might be worth a try. The Dubliner near the NK department store is also a popular venue for six nations and world cup games.

O'Leary's have some small booth tables with personal screens (seats 4) so they are a possibility as well even if other big games are on at the same time. The one on Götagatan was particularly helpful when we organised a big stag do on FA Cup Final weekend earlier this year.

If it is the Ulster vs Munster game or any other matches featuring Irish teams then your best bet is O'Connels in Gamla Stan. see the link below.

Hi Dan,

What game are you wanting to watch ? I saw one reply that mentioned O'leary's which is a decent bar and good food but im not 100% that Rugby would be shown. Its very Americanified if you know what I mean.

One bar I would suggest is The Tudor Arms (located in Östermalm). Traditional English with full sky sports (O'learys does not have Sky). As with all English pubs, they have great food and a really great atmosphere.

Cheers Mike
