THE Australian Hotel & Brewery at Rouse Hill is hosting a World Cup soccer screening on Saturday to raise money for Blacktown City Football Club.

They'll be screening Australia v Chile live from Cuiaba, Brazil, from 7am.

"It is great to see kids playing sports, having fun and keeping healthy but all sports cost money with registrations and uniforms etcetera, so if we can help raise some money to keep kids playing then that's great," said Kylie Murphy, the brewery's marketing manager.

Activities on the day include entertainment, raffles, guests, a face painter and $10 egg and bacon pizza specials.

Tickets, $10 or $5 (ages 4-12), are available on 9679 4555.
