KFC Pub in London for Fifa World Cup

Striking upon the fortunes that the Fifa World Cup 2022 in Qatar entails, KFC has opened a pub in Hammersmith on Fulham Palace road for fans to enjoy watching the games while tucking into buckets of its renowned fried chicken. KFC opens first-ever pub in London for Qatar World Cup. The fast-food chain has temporarily transformed The Old Suffolk Punch to suit its purposes and is open from November 25, 2022, to December 1, 2022. This new pub is equipped with rather large screens, the perfect accessory for watching football games.

The Colonel’s Arms is aptly named after KFC’s founder, Colonel Sanders. The food giant’s tagline “Chicken’s coming home” adequately reflects It’s Coming Home, the anthem of England’s national team. The pub offers fans an “unmatched football viewing experience” where KFC delivery invites fans to munch on finger-lickin’ chicken delivered straight to their table. 

Here is what the chicken chain had to say:

an unmatched football viewing experience, away from the winter frost and beer garden benches as the Colonel brings his Southern fried charm to this British classic

Tickets and Main Features

Entry to the pub requires tickets to be purchased from Eventbrite, which comes with a complimentary KFC delivery and a free drink. Currently, all tickets have been sold out, however, the event page is reassuring that most games will have available spots for walk-ins, which will run on a first come first serve basis. The pub does not deal with cash, requires ID upon entrance, and is only open for one week soon to close on December 1, 2022.
