We won EURO 2004, a victory that’s still discussed at length in sports bars up and down the country. Unfortunately, we’ve been disqualified from EURO 2020 which makes us very sad, but we are still fiercely passionate about the king we call ‘football.’ You’ll still find us gathered around the big screens in bars and parks this year, cheering on our second favourite teams!
If you want to feel the excitement of EURO 2020 as the locals do, then read on. Here is my guide to where to watch the footie, while you’re in Crete.
World Sport Cafe Edem is by far an edem for all kinds of world sports. Located next to the beach of Rethymno, this amazing place with its mini cinema-style atmosphere provides more than 10 screens for watching the world premier sports. Its menu includes a variety of cold beers as well, salty and sweet delicacies.

Located on Agia Marina beach, the touristic zone and sandy beach of Chania, Oki Bar is a great sport cafe that attracts locals and tourists. Relax in any of the comfortable armchairs, sip your beer or your fresh cocktail and have fun with your friends while watching the best soccer players on the large screens.

If you are spending your days in the beach resort town of Hersonisos, you should visit the all-day cafe bar White Lion Pub, a perfect place to catch up on whatever sport you like; football, tennis, Formula One, the Olympic Games and many more. Order your own 3 litre / 6 pints draught tap or cocktails on tap at your table and enjoy your favourite sport game!

Located on the main square of Elounda, Babel cafe bar has great views to the little harbour of the town. Its spacious space can accommodate everyone who wants to chill out, watch any live sports event on the big screen or dance.
