You'll be able to get your World Cup kicks for free this month in San Francisco.

Encouraged by the popularity of last summer's World Cup viewing  events at Civic Center Plaza, the San Francisco Recreation and Park  Department will host free, family-friendly viewings of this summer's women's competition at the same location.

Between July 9 and July 17, attendees can watch the quarterfinal,  semifinal and final matches of the FIFA Women's World Cup on a 13-by-17-foot  screen.


Events for kids - such as mini soccer games, giant inflatables and  soccer skills challenges - will be available thanks to a partnership with  America SCORES Bay Area, the parks and recreation department said.


Gourmet food trucks from Off the Grid will park nearby to feed the  participants.


The quarterfinals and semifinals take place July 9 and July 13,  respectively, and matches begin at 9 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. both days.

The  finals will be July 17 at 11:45 a.m.
