Trafalgar Square Is Screening England's Euro Final This Sunday

Up to 7,000 football fans will be able to watch a free screening of the UEFA Women's Euro final this Sunday (31 July), following England's rout against Sweden in Tuesday's semi-final.

England beat their Scandi rivals convincingly — with a 4-0 scoreline, and possibly the cheekiest Lioness goal of all time, courtesy of an Alessia Russo backheeled nutmeg.

England face Germany in this weekend's final. They beat England 6-2 in the Euro 2009 final, so maybe there's a chance for sweet revenge...

The final kicks off at Wembley at 5pm on Sunday 31 July, but fans not fortunate enough to score tickets for this will have the chance to watch on two big screens, for free, in Trafalgar Square.

The Trafalgar Square site opens at 11am (queuing is strictly prohibited until 10am), and is expected to reach full capacity well ahead of kick-off. It's standing only, so you might want to bring a picnic blanket (no camping chairs allowed). Accessible viewing space with chairs and space for wheelchairs will be available.

People are asked to register their interest and sign up for updates (this doesn't guarantee entry, it's more so that the Mayor's Office can get an idea for numbers and plan accordingly.)

The screening is part of the EURO 2022 Trafalgar Square Fan Party. Featuring a pop-up football pitch; live panel discussions, interviews and music; murals of England legends Fran Kirby, Leah Williamson and Beth Mead; and official UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 merchandise, the fan party is in situ from now till the final.
