The month-long 2010 World Cup, which takes place this year in South Africa, will be broadcast live on a large-format video screen across from City Hall and will be accompanied by soccer activities for kids and food and drink, according to the mayor's office. The free screenings kicked off Friday with the first game.
"There's no greater sporting event than the World Cup, and we hope soccer fans of all ages will come out to City Hall's front yard to enjoy the games," Mayor Gavin Newsom said in a statement.

The match was also aired on the big screens at AT&T Park, where an estimated 15,000 soccer fanatics took in the U.S. match versus England Saturday.
