Euro 2020: The battle of St-Viateur

Bishop & Bagg (England) vs. Café Olimpico (Italy).

The postponed Euro 2020 soccer tournament is about to kick off this afternoon at 3 p.m., and as traditional rivalries begin to play out on the pitch, fans are getting into it, too. In Montreal, two businesses on St-Viateur are engaging in their own tradition, placing a bet over whether England or Italy will go further as Euro 2020 plays out. British-style pub Bishop & Bagg will of course be cheering for England while, a couple of blocks away, the Mile End flagship location of Café Olimpico is betting on Italy.

The staff from the losing business will have to wear merch from the other business for a full day once the tournament is over.
