As a South Tampa resident, soccer fan, and avid MacDinton's customer this is one post that I am super proud to write! Recently Tampa's own MacDinton's Irish Pub was named US Soccer Official US Soccer Bar of the Month!

MacDinton’s Irish Pub, embraces the local soccer community and is a loyal supporter of the U.S. National Teams. Last week during the U.S. Men’s National Team 2-1 victory over El Salvador, our friends over at MacDinton’s offered local fans a chance to attend their official viewing party at the establishment and also, if they so chose, take part in their group ticket sales  game at nearby Raymond James Stadium

As Jerm can attest to, in addition to the U.S. Soccer related matches, MacDinton’s also features the English Premier League, Champions League and La Liga matches. Being a huge Manchester United fan, I am frequently out at MacDintons on weekend morning's to watch the games on Santa Sports that I can't get on regular cable.

An assortment of live bands and special events also decorate MacDinton’s calendar. Did I mention the food is awesome also? And I don't mean just awesome bar food, I am talking about awesome food in general. I have yet to sample anything on that menu that I wouldn't recommend to anyone.

If you’re a Tampa-based soccer aficionado searching for some live music and need a place to sport your green for St. Patty’s Day, MacDinton’s is the place for you. Be sure to check out MacDinton's today for the USA vs Netherlands match at 2:30pm, as our boys look to take on the powerful Dutch team as they continue preparations for this summers World Cup!

Congratulations to the crew at MacDinton’s on being the U.S. Soccer Bar of the Month for March! Stay tuned in for more updates on Tampa Bay dining and Tampa Bay nightlife as well!
