The Hangar Lounge, 318 Colorado Street, has been converted into a World Cup house, with FOX Sports sending a small army of talent to promote its coverage of the biggest tournament on the globe this summer from Russia.
There will be open houses from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, 11-8 p.m. Saturday and 11-4 p.m. Monday. A SXSW sports kickoff party is Friday night from 7-10.
FOX soccer on-air personalities in Austin for the long weekend include Alexi Lalas, Stuart Holden, Rob Stone and Rachel Bonnetta, who will do a live daily kickoff version of her Twitter show that will air in Moscow during the World Cup. Bonnetta’s show will be from 4:30-5 p.m. Friday-Sunday and 11-11:30 a.m. Monday.
The open houses will include panel conversations, documentaries, interactive digital presentations, social media exhibits, tattoo artistry, food, drink, music and other entertainment.
