One of the biggest international sporting events is happening right now. And no, we’re not talking about the Olympics or the qualifying rounds, but the Copa América. The international tournament featuring teams from North and South America is currently underway, with the finals taking place on July 14. If you’re looking for places to watch the games or have Copa América watch parties, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve rounded up the 5 best sports bars in Tampa where you can watch the games.

It’s been a long and crazy tournament so far and we’re currently in the semifinals. Unfortunately, the US team was eliminated in the 2nd round by Panama. The final four teams are Argentina, Canada, Uruguay and Colombia. Argentina has already secured its place in the finals with its 2-0 win over Canada last night.
