Moran’s Pub, City of Oak Creek Partner to Bring
World Cup Viewing Party to Drexel Town Square

Three-Day, Thanksgiving Weekend Event Features Food, Beverages,
Music, Family-Friendly Activities and Games on the Big Screen

OAK CREEK – It’s a soccer celebration eight years in the making.

Moran’s Pub and the City of Oak Creek are hosting a special Thanksgiving weekend event bringing soccer fans from across the region to Drexel Town Square for three days of food, beverages, music, family-friendly activities, and, of course, World Cup soccer on the big screen — outdoors.

Moran’s Soccer on the Square is set for Friday, November 25 through Sunday, November 27, with two games each day showing on the big screen – including a Black Friday matchup between England and the United States at 1 p.m.

Food trucks are also planned, and Moran’s will serve beer and craft beverages. There will also be soccer skills challenges and other outdoor games. All activities will be at Drexel Town Square, 8040 South 6th Street.

“I’m excited to bring this event to Oak Creek, and I can’t thank the city enough for its partnership,” said James Moran, owner of Moran’s Pub in downtown South Milwaukee. “Our pub has been in the family more than a quarter century, and our passion for soccer and the Bucks, Packers and Brewers comes through in everything we do. That will be on full display in Oak Creek.”

Said Oak Creek Mayor Dan Bukiewicz: “We take pride in the special events we bring to our city, and this World Cup Weekend will be a truly unique family experience.I can’t wait to see Drexel Town Square come to life with the World Cup – and show off our city to fans from across the region.”

“I love how soccer brings everyone closer together – where you leave friends no matter what the outcome is of the match,” Moran said. “That type of atmosphere is what we try to bring to the pub every week during Premier League matches and Packer games – and it’s what we’ll bring to Drexel Town Square.”
