"The World Cup is a great opportunity to bring people together around a common love for the game," said Republic FC COO Ben Gumpert. "It is a fun way to invite our fans to stop by our team store on their way to work, grab coffee on us and enjoy watching the games with other passionate fans. Knowing the passion of our fanbase, some might even call in sick to work for the morning - and we're ok with that."
