Biggest crowd yet in the FanZone as England look to reach the World Cup final
The FanZone was rocking on Saturday with 3000 fans watching England beat Sweden in the World Cup quarter-finals. An even bigger crowd is expected this Wednesday for the most important game in 28 years for the Three Lions.
Town legend Sir Bobby Robson was in charge of England when the team reached the last four in Italia 90 before going out to West Germany in a penalty shoot-out.
Now, just Croatia stand in the way of Gareth Southgate’s side going one step further and booking a place in Sunday’s final as a nation holds its breath for 90 minutes, or maybe 120!
The gates to the FanZone will open at 4.30pm, entry free as always, with £3 a pint on offer until 6pm. There will be extra bars open and eateries, with two giant screens in operation to watch the action. Kick-off is 7pm.
“There has been a fantastic atmosphere in the FanZone at each of the England games and it’s sure to be the same on Wednesday night,” Town’s MD, Ian Milne, told the Club website.
“We’re expecting a big crowd. Let’s hope football really is coming home!”
The Club would like to thank AXA, who were scheduled to have a long standing event on the Fieldturf on Wednesday but have agreed to delay their ‘big day’ for England’s big day.
“AXA were straight on the phone to the Club saying that they recognise the importance of showing the game in the FanZone and wanted to rebook for another day,” explained Town’s director of sales, Rosie Richardson.
“I think some of the staff will still be here on Wednesday though!”
Please note no food or drink to be brought into the FanZone. No large bags either for security reasons.
