Pubs with televisions are expected to be among the winners when the World Cup kicks off in Germany next month. Sales soared by as much as 35% during the last tournament in 2002 despite many matches kicking off in the early morning. This year, with matches in the evening, analysts are expecting an even bigger rise. Nightclubs could also benefit if England fans have something to celebrate. But restaurants, cinemas and theatres are likely to suffer. Pubs without TVs may also be hit. The Centre for Economics and Business Research estimates that £285m could be generated by additional sales in pubs, clubs and off-licences if England reach the semi-final.
