Bars across the United States are celebrating that America made it to the next round of the football World Cup writes Matt Vasilogambros:

  • Bars in the US have seen sales double during world cup matches.
  • One bar that typically opens after 5pm has taken to opening at 11am during matches.
  • The most pressing concern is that the USA will soon be eliminated. If that happens then bars will lose thousands in revenue.
  • After England was knocked out bars, supermarket and sports shop all reported a fall in sales.
