Located just off Oxford Road, this friendly spot is one of the best football pubs in Manchester. Head in for live sports across its numerous TV and projector screens, as well as plenty of affordable pints at the bar, classic grub and pool tables.

If you're looking for more bang for your buck, with a side of sports, Slug and Lettuce Albert Square will sort you right this football season. Bringing you a whole roster of matches alongside affordable food and drink options, book a table to make sure you're in with the chance of bagging a seat before kick off. 

A great spot to watch live football in Manchester, Yates is the sleek late night bar that boasts TV screens throughout. Grab a stool, order a pint and spend your night catching up on all the action, be it from the FA cup or Europa League.

Manchester Bierkeller

8 user reviews 3

Less tucked away, more heard from the sound of stein glasses clinking, Manchester Bierkeller is the hustle and bustle of any good German inspired beer den, with some Manchester attitude thrown in for good measure. Not only can you watch it in the beer hall, but the Shooters sports bar means Premier matches and cup games alike can be enjoyed.

The Green

You want to watch the football in Manchester on a floor to ceiling projector in your own private room with friends? You got it. Want to watch it in the main bar with the crowd? You got it. Whatever you want, this excellent Sports Bar just around the corner from Piccadilly Train station has enough TV screens to screen all of the Premier League and International games. 

Tib Street Tavern

1 user review 4

One of the Manchester locals' favourite places to catch a game. Tib Street Tavern is one the best Northern Quarter bars, offering a stylish approach to football. With plenty of comfy couches, leather booths and plasma televisions nobody has to miss out. If you're bringing along someone who is less football enthusiastic then the bar/pub offers a quieter, no football zone.

Not only is this football bar in Manchester called Café Football, but it's run by a bunch of the Manchester United Class of '92 boys, so you could say football is on their mind. Sat in the Museum of Football, you can get some delicious food while watching a match (though maybe don't wear your City colours), and they boast more than just lager: with global wines and craft beers from dozens of countries.
