For those of us not lucky enough to make the 5,700 mile trip to watch our boys in the Land Of The Rising Sun we have hand-picked the best venues who, despite the unsociable hours, have confirmed they will be showing all of Scotland’s matches live!

The Grosvenor Cafe

(24 Ashton Ln, Glasgow G12 8SJ)

With the largest screens in the city, The Grosvenor Café is a sleeping giant in the Glasgow live sports venue scene. Set down the picturesque, cobbled Ashton Lane they will be opening early for every one of Gregor Townsend’s boys matches and serving up breakfast throughout. To avoid disappointment, we would strongly advise booking ahead.

Committee Room 9

(18 John St, Glasgow G1 1JQ)

Potentially the holy grail of sports venues in Glasgow. An incredible food menu, a great range of draught beers (including crowd beating 2-pint steins) and an unrivalled line-up of large HD screens make this a must visit for the early rising sports fans amongst us. Open from 8am on matchdays it’s also conveniently placed for any pre-work action or early morning business meetings.
