Though most venues have already been sold out, we've compiled a list of places that are either offering free entry or are holding contests to score tickets to watch the final, so you won't have to miss a moment of the action.

The railway arches of this Bankside foodie hub has been transformed into the ultimate destination for sport this summer, with a gigantic screen in their outdoor courtyard broadcasting all the World Cup and Wimbledon matches. All their usual vendors will be open as well, so you won't have to travel far for a top-up or a snack to calm the nerves. Tickets to the final have yet to be released and entry to the semi-final sold out in a flash, but they're currently running a raffle for 50 customers to win four tickets each, so sign up quick.

Bud Boat

Blame your nerves on the seasickness aboard the Bud Boat, a Thames river cruise-slash-World Cup viewing party hosted by Budweiser. Doors open an hour before kick-off so you'll have plenty of time to grab a brew and sample the street food on board, and DJs will keep the party going after the final whistle. Tickets are £10, and though the semi-final is sold out, you can enter for the chance to win tickets to the World Cup final.
