It’s football season across America, but no one gets as excited and pumped up as Philly fans do. Here are some places to indulge in your favorite passion – rooting for the Eagles!  

There’s no better place to start than at the game itself. You can make a day of it at Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Eagles. Tailgate away or just come in for the game on public transportation. Make sure you check the schedule as it could be a 1 pm or 4 pm start on a Sunday, or a weekly night game. If spending all your hard earned cash on tickets and a day at the park is a little too pricey for you, try viewing the game at some of these spots listed below.

Every day is game day at Cavanagh’s Headhouse located at 421 S. 2nd St. off of South St. Cav’s has 7 rooms  to view with tons of screens and tons of taps, and killer wings. They are one of Philly’s top sports bars and they’re open until 2 am nightly.

Try Chickie & Pete’s as they are a proud partner of the Philadelphia Eagles. They’re located at 1526 Packer Ave. and open til 12 am Sunday through Thursday, and until 2 am on Friday and Saturday. Chickie and Pete’s are noted for their world famous crab fries.

There are plenty of other places to view football around Philly. Try Philadelphia’s oldest tavern. McGillin’s Olde Ale House has been serving since 1860 and they are still going strong. They are located at 1310 Drury St, and they are open until 2 am. McMenamin’s is located at 7170 Germantown Ave. They are open till 2am on Friday and Saturday and until 12 am the rest of the week. They may be a chain, but Buffalo Billiards is the place to go to shoot pool and watch the games. They are located at 118 Chestnut St. and they have all the games on Sunday. Fado Irish Pub has the atmosphere to watch football and soccer. They are located in Center City at 1500 Locust St. at 15th St.

If you want to get in some football practice yourself before the game starts, throw the ball around at Belmont Plateau. Not only will you get some exercise before going to view the game, but Belmont Plateau also has some of the best scenic views of the city. Maybe you’ll see the Eagles soar!
