Pubs and bars where you can watch Euro 2020 in Leeds this summer

Don’t miss a second of the action this summer, you’ve waited long enough.

There’s so much excitement surrounding the postponed Euro 2020 tournament, which finally kicks off this weekend on Friday 11 June.

It’s been a long time coming, with some people in Leeds waiting over a year to simply sit down, enjoy a pint and watch the footy in their local.

But, now the time has come, we’ve put together a list of some of the best places in Leeds to catch the action. After all, you haven’t waited all this time just to be stuck with a subpar seat.

Here are some of our top picks for watching the Euro’s in Leeds this summer.

The Myrtle Tavern

The landlord at this Meanwood pub is putting on a ‘VIP festival of football’ this summer, screening every Euro 2020 game in luxury. There’s a mega  7 x 3 metre screen and 50 VIP benches here, with tickets costing £100. For that, there’s 12 bottles of beer and six packets of crisps included and seats will be reserved after the game.

Dry Dock

With plenty of screens inside and plans to expand outside too, with more seating and screens set to appear ready for the Euros this summer, this characterful pub is a great choice if you want to watch the football. Make sure to book in to avoid disappointment, though.

The Beck and Call

Another Meanwood establishment – operated by the folk behind Belgave Music Hall. Family-run, this boozer has BT Sport and Sky Sports on a huge screen in the Tap Room and on other screens dotted around the venue.

Headingley Taps

This popular student pub has confirmed it will be showing all the Euros games this summer, with bookings being advertised online.

The Royal Armories

The Royal Armouries in Leeds Dock will transform into a football festival for the Euros, with each game preceded by a three-course meal, special guest speakers and live entertainment. The Magnificent 7 event will see all the action beamed onto huge indoor screens alongside match analysis.


With some tasty beers and grub on offer alongside the football this summer, Toast is a good choice if you’re looking for somewhere to spend a few hours before watching the game.


A good stop-off for sports fans in general, this summer Walkabout is going all-out for the Euros with a host of big screens showing all the matches. There’ll likely be some special offers closer to the time too.

The Box

A great place to watch the footy, both venues in Chapel Allerton and Headingley will be screening all the Euro action this summer.

The Brotherhood

Another popular choice for sports fans, all the football matches will be screened here for Euro 2020.

This large pub in Headingley has a big screen in the beer garden and smaller ones dotted around inside too. Arguably the finest sports pub on Otley road, what sets it apart is its lovely beer garden complete with a huge screen.


This lively Call Lane drinking den will be showing all the Euros matches throughout the summer. With big screens inside, fat burgers and tasty cocktails and you can’t really go wrong here. 


Known for its boozy bottomless brunches, crazy cocktails and free stonebaked pizzas (before 9pm), Cuckoo might not be the first place you’d think of to go watch the footie but we can confirm they’ll be showing all the matches here. 

Call Lane Social

This family-run favourite is going to be screening all of the Euros matches. Even better, there’s no need to book – just walk straight in. 


For cold beers and top tequila cocktails, Verve is always a shout. Football fans will want to pull up too, because management have now confirmed they will be showing all the matches for the Euros here. 

Mean Eyed Cat Bar 

This Merrion Street tiki bar pulls no punches on its cocktails, serving up a mix of signatures and twisted classics alongside tasty pizzas with a variety of toppings. Now taking bookings and walk-ins, you probably want to reserve a table here to make sure you get a good view of the footy action.
