Giant screen in Jersey park to watch Euro 2024

A giant screen will be set up in Howard Davis Park from next weekend for islanders to watch the Euro 2024 knockout stages.

The family-friendly fan zone will open on Saturday 29 June, and will be free for everyone to attend. 

It's billed as an alcohol-free space, but people will be able to bring in picnic food and soft drinks. 

Matches will kick off at 5.00pm and 8.00pm, with the fan zone opening 45 minutes before for islanders looking to claim a good viewing spot. 

Those thinking of coming along will usually just be able to rock up, but games expected to draw a large crowd will be ticketed, but at no cost.

The Minister with responsibility for sport, Connétable Andy Jehan, is hoping this will be an atmospheric space for all islanders: 

“The Government of Jersey and the Jersey Football Association have worked together to enable this important event in the sporting calendar to be enjoyed by as many people as possible. 

"We want to create an environment where everyone can enjoy the thrill of the Euros, no matter who they support.

"Hopefully the pubs and bars will be packed, and this is an additional alternative which will be more family orientated, and will have a vibrant and exciting atmosphere.”

Jimmy Kelly, Chair of Jersey FA Board of Directors, says this is a fan zone for everyone:

“This is an excellent initiative that will showcase the diverse population of our Island, as well as capturing the impact that a major sports event can have on the Jersey community. 

“Football is accessible to everyone and is an inclusive sport to bring people together.

"If previous international football competitions are anything to go by, we expect a significant increase in the number of people wanting to play, and we hope that this event will inspire Islanders in the same way.”

Free tickets to popular football games at the fan zone can be found on the government events page.
