Sports bars in Phuket are ideal for passionate fans visiting Phuket. If the idea of not being able to follow your team while you’re in Thailand concerns you, these are the places for you, with each one having multiple TVs tuned to a wide array of sports. Many of them list their schedules on social media, so you know you'll be able to catch the games you’re interested in before you go.

    Many of the best places to watch sports in Phuket are Aussie-owned bars, where the sports of the Antipodeans reign supreme. Most also air major European sports, while a few show US sporting action. They all attract fellow sports fans, creating the same lively team spirit you'll find back home, which is what makes many of them popular as bars and restaurants in their own right.
