The U.S. team’s first match in the World Cup is going to be shown on the big screen Monday in the Santa Fe Railyard.

A 12′ by 9′ LED TV screen is being set up in the Railyard Plaza, conveniently located near the Second Street Brewery.

Tables are selling out fast with a view of the screen, but you can watch the game from the rest of the area for free.

Apparently this is Heath Concert’s attempt to replicate towns around the world where soccer fans gather in plazas to watch telecasts of the World Cup games, which are taking place in Brazil this year.

Monday’s game of the U.S. vs. Ghana starts at 4 p.m.
