Best bars to see a football game in Bilbao

Bilbao has second oldest football team in Spain, Athletic of Bilbao. It is a very popular team with all the players exclusively from Basque origin during more than 100 years, and counting...

Even in the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao they love Athletic of Bilbao football team. That is local football team flag on the left. Aupa Athletic!

There is a big quantity of supporters every weekend and you will feel the love for this team in a lot of corners to the city, but where to see a match in a good atmosphere? Best places are in Licenciado Poza street (called by locals "Pozas". This street is one of the most popular places for having a wine and a pintxo after, before and during the match. But these are three of the best bars out of that street that I can recommend for Athletic of Bilbao and international football fans:

A La Granja. The second oldest bar in Bilbao is a great option to see the football match. And you can enjoy their great pintxos and drink local txakoli white wine whilst enjoying the unique atmosphere with local fans.

B Ein Prosit. I This bar, famous between locals for the sausages that his German owner has been making for years, is a great place for seeing Athletic of Bilbao matches, but also other international matches from Premier League, and, of course, German Bundesliga... specially if you are a Bayern Muenchen fan! 

C Covent Garden. With 5 screens this is a good place to see international matches as well.
