After beating the host nation in the semis, our incredible Lionesses take on Spain this Sunday as the first English side to reach a World Cup Final since 1966.

Here are the spots around Manchester where you can book a table to watch them bring it home.

Kick-off is at 11am.

Nell's | Kampus, Common and The Beagle

With screens at their Common, Kampus and The Beagle outposts, Nell’s are hosting a World Cup Final watch party across all their outposts this Sunday. Whether you’re in town or Chorlton, head down in plenty of time to secure a seat and settle the nerves with their vast array of pizza, beer and cocktails.

Libero | Altrincham

Billed as ‘the queerest sports bar on the planet’, Altrincham’s Libero banishes the baying jeans-and-sheux crowd and the smashed-pint jeers in favour of an achingly chic celebration of vintage football, redolent of Italian soft-spread shirt sponsors, billowing collars, the Adidas Copa Mundial, cosy continental haunts, Calcio on Channel 4 and everything else that made us fall in love with the beautiful game. As always, they’ll be serving a variety of delicious craft beers throughout their World Cup Final coverage on Sunday.
