Brian Ching’s newly opened Pitch 25 quickly joins list of top soccer watch spots in Houston

HOUSTON — The FIFA World Cup kicked off with the host country, Russia, easily beating Saudi Arabia 5-0. With so many more matches and goals to come, Brian Ching's Pitch 25 has opened up just in time. The Dynamo legend launched the soccer-themed bar in East Downtown, and already had a big crowd for the opening match.

"There's a big, open feel," Ching said. "We have lots of space, tons of TVs, great craft beer on tap. We actually have a little soccer field which adds a nice little touch to it. Being so close to BBVA Compass Stadium, I don't think it gets much better than this."
