    Answering this from Russia so can't be sure but other big matches have been shown on a giant screen in Times Square which is next to the Centre for Life and close to the Central Station. Also a new sports bar on the corner of Westgate Road and Grainger Street which is huge. Otherwise other likely spots which will have a good atmosphere will be Shearers Bar which is part of St James PArk or bars in the Bigg Market (City Vaults, Old George)
