Roaring on England in Millennium Square

England's bid to win the World Cup this summer can be backed by capacity crowds watching the big screen in Millennium Square.

Every England game in the World Cup will be shown live.

Up to 8,000 people can enjoy the big-match atmosphere in the square.

Leeds City Council's Events Team will create the arena that has proved popular in previous tournaments back to 2002.

Every game

England's bid begins against the USA on Saturday, 12 June, followed by their other group games against Algeria on Friday, 18 June and Slovenia on Wednesday, 23 June.

The square has been the venue for live England games during previous World Cup campaigns.

Admission will be free to each game, and should England progress to the knockout stages every game will be shown live.

Fans are advised to arrive early as admission will be on a strictly first-come first-served basis until the maximum capacity is reached.

No tickets will be issued or required, and the arena will feature a fully-licensed bar and food outlets.

Alongside England's games, all the World Cup matches shown by the BBC will be on the big screen along with the usual mix of news, weather and local information.


The action will also be shown at Headingley Carnegie Stadium, home to Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Leeds Rhinos.
