MIKE KOOZMIN/THE S.F. EXAMINERFans watch Game 6 of the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals on the big screen set up in Civic Center Plaza on Tuesday.

Civic Center Plaza will host World Series Game 7 viewing tonight

This evening's winner-take-all World Series Game 7 will be broadcast live at Civic Center Plaza, the Mayor's Office confirmed. The Kansas City Royals staved off elimination with a 10-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants in Game 6 on Tuesday night, tying the series 3-3 and forcing tonight's elimination game. Game 6 was also shown on a Jumbotron screen in front of City Hall and police said there were no major problems or arrests among the hundreds of people who had gathered there. Police, including Chief Greg Suhr, were there before the game confiscating alcohol, which is not allowed at the event. Police are also prepared with extra staff if the Giants win and celebrations get destructive after the game, as they did in 2012 when fires were lit in the streets, businesses were vandalized and a Muni bus was destroyed. Patrols will primarily be watching for illegal activity in South of Market and the Mission district, where most of the mayhem happened in 2012. Game 7 is scheduled to start at 5:07 p.m.Bay Area NewsSan Francisco GiantsWorld Series
