Rowdy party bar Font is not only a great place for a night out, it's also a top choice when it comes to watching the World Cup in Brighton. Head to the former 17th Century Chapel to find HD screens showing not just the final tournament, but also the warm-up games taking place throughout August.

The Exchange

From the eclectic murals to the mismatched furniture, The Exchange is one of Brighton's quirkiest pubs. It's also got a penchant for sport, screening major tournaments - and this autumn that includes the Rugby World Cup.

A country-cosy pub made for chilling out, having some good scran and sitting back with a pint to watch one of the biggest sporting occasions of this year. The Rugby World Cup is coming and The Royal Sovereign have got all of your viewing needs covered. A playground of craft beers, a garden and plenty of punters - what more could you need?

Whether you support Ireland or are just looking for a traditional spot to catch the match, Molly Malone's has got what you're looking for. While it might look like a historical boozer from the outside, the West Street watering hole comes alive on match day; grab a pint of Guinness and get stuck in with the fun.
