Updated July 2023 to reflect changes in town – check out this list of apres spots for more sports bars. 

Football, soccer… call it what you want, the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup is being hosted in Australia and New Zealand and for the next month it’s “Football Fever” across the globe as people come together to watch games and cheer for their favourite teams.

But where to watch? If you’re holidaying in Whistler for the weekend or the month you may not be as familiar with the lay of the land, or more importantly the big-screen TVs. Fear not. The Insider has you covered.

Whistler’s Top World Cup Watching Venues

Tapley’s Neighbourhood Pub

Tapley’s has long been home to watching football in Whistler. They routinely play Premiership and Champions League games and they are pulling out all the stops for the World Cup. Tapley’s is right across from the Whistler Conference Centre, look for the flags of the World Cup countries hanging out front and listen for the cheers.

Cinnamon Bear Grill

The Cinnamon Bear has probably the comfiest chairs of any sports bar in town and is located in the Hilton Hotel.

Table Nineteen at Nicklaus North

Table Nineteen is in the clubhouse of the Nicklaus North Golf Course and besides epic views of Green Lake and Armchair Glacier on the patio you can also request to have the Women’s World Cup play on the TVs inside. Nicklaus North is a five-minute drive North of Whistler Village, we’d suggest jumping on local transit or riding a bike / e-bike along the Valley Trail.

Roland’s Pub – Whistler Creekside

The Village isn’t the only spot to check out some World Cup action. Roland’s Pub down by Nita Lake is showing the games and offers daily specials and a relaxed, community vibe. If you want the sound turned up, they will.

When in Whistler, don’t forget to offset all that awesome World Cup TV watching with some fresh air and killer outdoor activities. Find them all at Whistler.com


Feet Banks moved to Whistler at age 12 so his parents could live the dream and ski as much as possible. He ended up living it too. After leaving home Feet did a few good stints in warmer climates and 4 years of writing school before returning to the mountains to make ski movies, hammer out a journalism career and avoid the 9-5 lifestyle as long as possible. He’s been a hay farmer, a hole digger, a magazine editor and has a jump named after him on Blackcomb Mountain, Feet’s Air. It’s tiny.
