No World Cup Viewing Party Is Cozier Than Berlin's

Throughout the World Cup, fans will be watching games in a "World Cup Living Room" set up on the pitch of FC Union Berlin. The organizers, inspired by a fan chant about the stadium being their home, set up the grass with end tables, lamps, and it all amounts to one of the more special atmospheres I can imagine.

The only caveat? Fans have to bring their own sofas.

A small price to pay. The living room will be open for every match of the tournament. Here are some AP photos of the scene at last night's Brazil-Croatia match.
