A few Fridays ago (11 June 2010), I had dinner with friends, Jackie and Chie (Jojo, Jack’s husband eventually joined us). We had a taste of the yummiest burgers at Grill’d. It’s the newest burger place in Darling Harbour and they serve the healthiest burgers ever (will blog about them soon).
It was the opening night of the International FIFA Fan Fest Sydney at Darling Harbour, so after dinner we had a bit of a walk around Darling Harbour and took some photos (our group photos courtesy of Jojo).
For this year’s FIFA World Cup, Sydney has joined London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Rio de Janeiro and Mexico City as International FIFA Fan Fest cities.
Sydney’s International FIFA Fan Fest is setted up at Darling Harbour, one of the globe’s leading waterfront leisure and entertainment destinations with more than 100 restaurants, cafes and bars and over 20 nearby accommodation options from serviced apartments to five-star hotels.
They have this massive soccer ball that has TV screens, it’s so cool.
This area gives soccer fans a chance to watch matches live on a 50-square metre floating screen, with a view of Darling Harbour and the city skyline as backdrop. Soccer fans come to watch and enjoy live music and soak up Australia’s amazing cultural and culinary diversity at the biggest World Cup celebration in Australia.
There are booths for food, drinks and souvenirs. The soccer celebration at Darling Harbour is on til 12 July 2010.
