The grassroots supporter's group for the United States Men's National Team has expanded to more than 125 official chapters and sports many more unofficial chapters across the United States (and there are even chapters outside of the US for expatriates). The local chapters have all announced festivities surrounding the USMNT's three upcoming matches in the World Cup. Here's a chance to go support the US National Team at a pub near you.
