Where to watch Rugby World Cup in Osaka 2019/9/16 15:11
Hello,

We are going to be in Osaka on 2 Nov, which is the day of the Rugby World Cup 2019 Final.

Unfortunately we don't have tickets for the actual match in Yokohama, and the official fan zone in Osaka is not open for the final match (which is very strange and disappointing!).

Can you recommend where to watch the final on a big screen, perhaps in sports bars in Osaka? Do they need reservations to get in?

Thanks!

Two Sports Bars in Osaka that are advertising they are showing RWC games , are
Nambar 10 Sports Bar, which is situated inside Swisshotel complex , ontop of the Namba Railway Station. I would definitely book, phone 06 66461111

or Coolabar Sports Bar, Australian/New Zealand themed sports bar, 2-16-13 Housen Building 1F Nishishinsaibashi Chuo-ku Osaka 06 6213 5153 or 090 42992202.

Hanazono Central Park Baseball Stadium 1-1-43 Matsubaraminami Higashiosaka, free admission.

Thank you for replying so quickly!

Unfortunately the Fan Zone in Tennoji will not be open for the Final match on 2 Nov according to the Rugby World Cup official webite, which is disappointing.

It also looks like the Nambar 10 sports bar has now closed down. It's no longer showing on the Swisshotel website.

Try this bar, Murphy's Bar Shinsaibashisuji 1-5-2 . Floor 2F. phone +81 6 6245 3757.
They are advertising they are showing RWC... but who knows it might be only if Ireland are in the finals!!
They have a facebook page with a message contact, so you could check. They are cash only. Good Luck.
