Soccer fans can head to Avaya Stadium in San Jose for 2018 FIFA World Cup viewing parties that will feature every match of the tournament on the stadium’s large video board, the San Jose Earthquakes announced Thursday. 

Stadium entry and parking fees for the world’s largest sporting event are free every day. Food trucks, inflatables, FIFA stations and more will be available for fans, the team said. On days with high-profile contests, the host will roll out extra in-stadium activations.

The tournament kicked off Thursday in Russia and runs until mid-July. 

The Earthquakes are encouraging fans to show their support for their favorite teams and players. There will be a best dressed guest competition every day with a prize being awarded to the winner. Additionally, there will be numerous enter-to-win prizes, including a chance at a ticket to the Earthquakes vs. Manchester United friendly at Levi’s Stadium on July 22. 

And for the early risers, anyone who shows up to the first match of the day will be given free coffee.
