Surviving watching sports

It may be too cold to play or even think about playing your favourite sport, but there’s no reason you can’t enjoy the game together with your team. We take a look at places across Deft that show the games, from football to tennis.

Cafe Bonte Os
If a Champions League match is on, chances are that Cafe Bonte Os will be packed. The venue has two big screens, one of which is in the smoking lounge, so fans can keep an eye on the game wherever they are. The café, which opened in 2012, kept the name of the inn that was in that spot around 1560. No football match is too small for them to screen here. “The most popular, of course, are the Champions League and Premier League football matches. We have up to 60-70 people at a time,” said Andre Lubach, the owner. They also screen dart competitions and Grand Slam tennis tournaments.

Biercafe ’t Proeflokaal
During the 2014 Football World Cup, Biercafe ’t Proeflokaal was among the few pubs in Delft that remained opened to screen even the latenight matches during the kick-off stage. They also screened nearly all of the Euro 2016 matches, opening early to do so. Besides their beer, darts and pub quizzes, Proeflokaal is a favoured venue among football fans. Besides multiple screens to screen simultaneous events, they even host special on-topic quizzes for fans. “Since 1997 we have been showing the World Cup and European games live on multiple screens,” the owner, Edwin van Schijndel, told Delta in a previous interview. Famous with expats, you’re likely to bump into fans from around the world here

Café de Tobbe
Another popular venue is Cafe de Tobbe. They have three bars and, most importantly, one large screen that is usually showing football. The bar was taken over by a new owner in 2014, 27-year-old Danny de Quaasteniet . “If people call and let us know in advance that they’d like to watch another sport, we can do that,” said de Quaasteniet.
Address: Café de Tobbe, Buitenwatersloot 17, Delft

Cafe Huug
Situated right on the Markt, this brown café also screens a fair amount of sport. From football to rugby to Formula 1. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for the latest schedule.
