The World Cup. Where to watch it in Bali?

Football’s biggest championship, The World Cup is on the way soon. It starts with the opening and first game between host nation Qatar and Ecuador at the Al Bayt Stadium at local Bali time of midnight Sunday, November 20, 2022.

The World Cup 2022 is being held in Qatar for the first time this year from Nov 20 and finishing with the final on Sunday December 18, right in time for Christmas!

There is a 5 hour difference in the time between Qatar to Bali so expect some late games, but some are reasonably timed during the group stages.

Group stage games will be televised live in Bali at 6pm, 9pm, midnight and 3am. The qualifying finals will be televised at 11pm and 3am. Thankfully, the Final itself is on at the manageable time of 11pm.

There will be some glary eyed football fans roaming around the streets of Bali late at night during that month so be careful on the roads.

So how can you watch it at home?

Free to air local stations SCTV (56-matches) and Indosiar (16-matches) will be showing all the games between them. Get an antennae quick. Moji and Mentari TV (selected group stage matches), Champions TV, Nex Parabola and Vidio (all matches and cheap)

Where to watch the World Cup in a bar?

Since some of the games are out of normal operating hours it could be difficult to find a place open for the late games but the early games should not be an issue at your usual sports bars. Ask if they are open for the 3am games. We shall update the list below as information comes in.
