World Cup 2018 Match Broadcasts


World Cup 2018 kicks off today, but where can you watch the matches? 

The World Cup fanzone by Hala Stulecia is one option, but there are countless others. Check out our ultimate guide to watching World Cup 2018 for all the info.


Gastro Nocki


Wrocław's most popular night market is all set to return to its new location on pl. Społeczny this Friday.

Last year 'Gastro Nocki', held on the grounds of Świebodzki station on weekends in late August, proved a real hit. Hundreds of Wrocławians flocked to the night market each night to sample a variety of street food and craft beer, as well as do a bit of alternative shopping.

Earlier this year the organisers of Gastro Nocki announced that they would be leaving Świebodzki station to explore new sites. The first edition of the 2018 night market was held on pl. Społeczny last month. The choice of location seemed to make sense as in recent years the site has been home to several live gigs and food truck festivals. 

In another twist to the format, Gastro Nocki are planning to twin editions of their market with various festivals taking place in the city. Last time out it was the Jazz on the Odra festival, and in the upcoming edition RAP SZALET will perform live as part of the WroSound festival.

'Gastro Nocki' kicks off on Friday at 5pm and will run throughout the weekend until late on Sunday evening. You can find more details on the official Facebook event page


10th edition of the Football Against Racism tournament

For the 10th time amateur footballers from Poland and all over the world will compete in Wrocław's annual 'Football Against Racism' tournament. 

While almost all eyes will understandably be on the first matches of World Cup 2018 this weekend, at the same time an immeasurably smaller tournament will be held in Wrocław for a good cause.

The 10th edition of the Football Against Racism tournament on Saturday will feature players from the likes of Poland, Vietnam, Azerbaijan, Ukraine and many African nations to name just a few.

The tournament is being backed by The Wroclaw Center for Social Development and Śląsk Wrocław Football Club amongst others.

Football won't be the only attraction at the event either, as they'll be live music as well as workshops and sporting activities for kids.
