Fans set to flock to FanZone for England's World Cup quarter-final with Sweden

A big crowd is expected again in the FanZone on Saturday to see if England can take another step closer to the World Cup final.

Around 2000 fans watched the drama unfold at Portman Road on Tuesday night as Gareth Southgate’s side held their nerve to beat Colombia in a penalty shoot-out.

Now Sweden stand in the way of a place in the semi-final against either Russia or Croatia.

It's the biggest game since England lost out to Portugal on penalties in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in 2006.

Gates open at the FanZone at 1.30pm. Entry as always is free, with kick-off at 3pm.

Close on 5000 fans have watched England’s games in the FanZone so far and it’s sure to be a great atmosphere on Saturday. Make sure you’re there! Football could be coming home!

With the FanZone showing the game, the second day of the music event, IPI LIVE, will now start at 6.30pm.

When the England game has finished, fans will be asked to vacate the stadium immediately to enable IP1 LIVE to start on time. For full details of the line up for IP1 LIVE, click on
