Monday, June 30, 2014

With a crowd of well over 150 people in attendance at the last public World Cup viewing party, River City Company will host Chattanoogans again for the USA vs. Belgium match on Tuesday. With one 70” big screen and four 55” screens playing the game along with sound, River City Company will begin streaming coverage at 11:00 a.m. for the game beginning at 4 p.m.

Set up with chairs and tables, this free public viewing is a unique opportunity to enjoy this City Center spot, cheer on the USA and support the eateries in and around Miller Plaza.

“Last week’s viewing party was remarkable,” said Amy Donahue, marketing and communications manager for River City Company. “Seeing the U.S. represent on a global stage and being able to be a small part of the excitement here in Chattanooga was a lot of fun for us and all the spectators.”

Attendees are welcome to bring outside food and beverages to Waterhouse Pavilion in Miller Plaza. However, please note that alcohol will not be permitted at this event, and Miller Plaza is smoke-free.
