D.C.'s Dupont Circle is poised to become World Cup central for the District. Fans will be able to watch the United States' first game on giant video screens.

ESPN, which holds the broadcasting rights for the game, says it has granted a permit for two local fans to show the U.S.-England match on June 12th.

The fans are the same men who organized the widely-attended snowball fight in Dupont Circle this past winter.
