Football Fan Zone Now Holds 600 Spectators

The government and SandPiper CI have extended the fan some into Vittoria, A.K.A Mimosa, meaning even more people can join in the football fun!

The extra space means that capacity can now reach 600 in Liberty Wharf, with the addition of the nightclub's terrace and bar areas.

More 55-inch LED screens have also been added, totalling to 11, to accommodate the extra spectators.

Security has also been increased for Sunday's historic match.

It is a result of Wednesday's semi-finals success where hundreds of islanders and visitors watched the nail-biting match against Australia's Matildas.

Deputy Lucy Stephenson, Sports Minister, says she was overwhelmed by the popularity of the first trial.

"People can often remember where they were when historic events or achievements take place around the world, and it would be lovely if hundreds of Islanders can remember that they watched the match with fellow football fans in central St Helier when England won the Women’s World Cup for the first time."

Numerous other pubs and bars will be showing the match, including Chambers where Channel 103 will be doing a live show where islanders can win a £50 Randalls voucher and other prizes.
