By  | 

Football fans are a breed of their own. As the season is now underway, you will want to know where you can show off your true team colors. The Chargers are well loved in San Diego, but there’s something to be said about hometown, out-of-state, or alma mater pride.

Here are five of San Diego’s top football bars where you can be a part of unique game-day parties celebrating teams with football specials that’ll take you to the end zone.

Sunday and Monday nights hold a special place in the hearts of football enthusiasts! If you’re in Pacific Beach,  The Duck Dive is a place where you can touchdown with a wide range of specials. Dive into all of the football action with a great beer selection during all NFL games. Besides pledging loyalty to the Chargers, Duck Dive is also a Nebraska Huskers bar, serving specials for Husker game-days that allow fans to go “Big Red.” As if you need an extra incentive to stop on by, The Duck Dive will donate $1 to the San Diego Husker Scholarship Fund with every Husker Special, Red Beer and Runza sold.

Make every Chargers’ game a family event with brunch specials on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at Union Kitchen & Tap, located in the heart of downtown San Diego.  Union Kitchen & Tap is stacked with the best game-day essentials including 12 TVs, and a projector screen showing your favorite highlights with sound. Spike your breakfast with bottomless mimosas, two Union Bloody Mary’s or a bucket of four domestic beers for $15. Can’t make it out on the weekend? Why not host your very own fantasy draft party! You and your friends can argue over this season’s top draft picks with house wine, great beer, craft cocktails and well drinks, and ½ priced bottles of wine.

After your evening surf session, make a pit-stop at Pacific Beach Shore Club to prove what it takes to “be a badger” and cheer on Badgers football with fellow Wisconsinites (with cheese curds in hand)! With wall-to-wall TVs both indoors and on the outdoor deck provide, Shore Club also has ample room for Midshipmen to cheer on Navy Football in their sea of blue and gold. Take a seat, party on, and enjoy special game-day discounts, prizes and raffles with a beach view!

Football season is right around the corner and Pacific Beach AleHouse knows how to celebrate with their Buffalo Bills, Iowa Hawkeyes, and Oregon Duck fans!  Put on your red and blue jersey and cheer on the Bills with “Buffalo-themed” AleHouse football specials. They’ve got all your favorite Western New York grub for the game including Sahlen’s Hot Dogs and traditional Buffalo wings with Franks Hot Sauce. Not mention AleHouse is also stocked with enough Labatt Blue bottles of beer to make you want to throw your hands up and “shout!”

In Mission Beach, Sandbar Sportsbar & Grill is the place to be if you’re a Boise State fan. Enjoy discounts on food and drinks while trying your luck with prizes and raffles. Choose from a variety of artisan burgers and tacos to keep you energized while rooting for your team, all while taking in the view of the sunset from the Sandbar sky deck.

In North County? Union Kitchen & Tap in Encinitas also has specials to help you get into the football spirit. In addition to bottomless mimosa brunch from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays, Union will be hosting Social Hour all night long for Monday Night Football.
