    Out of curiosity, why are they called "watch parties" in the US? We call them

    Hmm. Well good question. I suppose its just the custom in Chicago. We are "watching" the match on television, in the pub, and a "party" atmosphere is usually achieved with good beer, food, and friends.

    I think thats cool. I mean the term public viewing came up after the 2006 WC and everyone uses it until this day whilst in actual English speaking countries the term is completely unknown. Typical American to make a party of it, typical German to use a very technical term like public viewing.
