You may have noticed the World Cup craze all over, soccer fan or not. This tournament, occurring once every four years, is a major worldwide event. Across sports and nations, there is one thing fans like to combine with their favorite sports events. I’ll give you five seconds to think. Ready? Guess! Yes, you guessed right: food and sports go strangely hand-in-hand at sports events.

You can get some basic, fast food options in a stadium. However, the options are limitless at home. Be it on the couch or the table, there are many options to choose from. This article will review the best apps to order food for the most popular matches. And, of course, we’ll fetch you the info on the most popular World Cup matches’ schedules for this weekend.

Important World Cup matches this weekend

There are several essential highlights this weekend. But before the weekend, you should know the USA plays this Friday against England. It’s one of the top events for Friday. Here’s the info:

USA – England

11/25 at 14:00 (EST)

This is a very anticipated match, and we’re very tempted to throw in colonialism/independence jokes, but we won’t. Suffice it to say, England is one of the favorites for winning the tournament, and the USA, unfortunately, has 0.6% of winning the FIFA World Cup according to some forecasts.

The most crucial match for Saturday, 26th

Argentina – Mexico

11/26 at 14:00 (EST)

This is a hot match, as Argentina needs to recover from its surprising defeat against Saudi Arabia and Mexico wasn’t able to win their first match. In the history of the World Cup, Argentina beat Mexico the three times they played. Will Mexico break the spell, or will Argentina keep up with the tradition?

The most important match for Sunday, 27th

Spain – Germany

11/27 at 14:00 (EST)

This is the only match this weekend where two firm candidates to take the Golden Cup home compete against each other. Germany, like Argentina, suffered a humiliating defeat against a less experienced rival, Japan in this case, and is eager to turn the tables. On the other hand, Spain enjoyed a fantastic victory of 7-0 against Costa Rica, and morale couldn’t be higher.

If you want to make sure you don’t miss any of these matches, be sure to check these exciting streaming apps for the World Cup:

Where to get food during the World Cup

Now that you are up-to-date about the important events these days, it’s time to explore the best way to get food to enjoy the matches. Since Qatar and the USA have a considerable time zone difference, these matches occur at about noon or early afternoon.

Whatever the time is, with these apps, you don’t need a browser to find food on Google. You’ll get the best food at home right on time to enjoy the games.


This is undoubtedly one of the most, if not the most, popular food services in the USA. With Grubhub, you can get food in more than 1,100 cities throughout the States. It has more than 50,000 restaurants, including fast-food joints and upscale restaurants. You can even order food four days in advance.

There are several features on the app, like real-time delivery tracking and curbside pickups if you want takeout instead of delivery food.


Did you know Uber Eats is the second most installed app in the USA? It covers more than 500 cities in America. You can find all kinds of restaurants here, and there are no delivery fees if you also use Uber One.

If you want to prepare some snacks or even a great meal to invite friends to watch the games, you can also get groceries delivered to your doorstep.

This is one of the first apps of its kind, and they offer food from restaurants, groceries, alcohol, and more. Forgot the beer? Perhaps some bourbon for half-time? Just get the app and start ordering.

An exciting feature of this app is that it saves your previous orders, and you can reorder them with just one tap. Very convenient to repeat the menu for the different matches.

Rappi is the most popular food delivery app in Mexico, and they’re also the official sponsor for the national team, which means a heavenly combination for soccer fans in Mexico. On top of that, they have a promotion for the first 30 days where you get your deliveries free of charge.

Glovo was born in Spain and, thus, is one of the most popular apps for ordering food and many other things in this country. You can choose food from most places in Spain, including the best restaurants and even flowers for that special someone.
