Never been to St Lucia i'm afraid so can't help there but as Spanky mentioned, the Ship will have footie on or just a 5/10 min walk from SL Gap towards Worthing is a bar called Berts which is great for watching sport. That's the place I watched the Carling Cup Final. It has approx 20 odd 42" plasma screens all round the bar and a couple of 50" plasma screens too. I also went there for the Man Utd v Newcastle game and half the screens had that game and the rest showing the Man City v Villa game. Also did decent grub.

Alternatively there's Bubba's next door. I didn't go in there but the place is huge and is apparently good for watching the game although we were warned that the air con is ferociously cold there!!

Seriously, wherever you go you will find somewhere with all the games on. The Bajans are sport mad and all watch the Premier league. As they have the US version of Setanta and the Premier League channel they get access to all the games.....unlike us back home

For a cheaper option there's an off-licence/take away at the far end of St Lawrence (i.e. Oistens direction) , about 400 yards from Dover Beach Hotel. Big screen outside, B$ 2 for a bottle of banks and a bottle opener on the counter where you pay for it.

probably on about the same one blunty, think it was called Tommys or something similiar.

food counter on the left as you walk in, beer at the back and even got it's own toilet.

Tescos have no chance of dominating barbados. ;)

It's called Scotty's & you're right it's excellent value for beer & the food is good too. Anyone going for the ODIs will find much better value at places like this rather than the likes of The Ship. Towards the end of the Gap past Dover Field & Time Out hotel on your left & it's about 150 yards on the right....
