Trafalgar Square will broadcast the England Vs Sweden semi-final match on a huge screen to 5,000 footie fans this Tuesday (26 July).

So far, the Lionesses have been tearing up the competition in these Euros — with four consecutive wins, and a rather sublime 16 goals.

The semi-final kicks off at 8pm at Bramall Lane, Sheffield — but 5,000 Londoners can watch the action on a screen in the centre of London, in what will be the country's largest outdoor screening.

Interested in being in Trafalgar Square? The screening's free to attend, and it's first-come-first-served (though people are asked to register their interest and sign up for updates).

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.

The screening is part of the EURO 2022 Trafalgar Square Fan Party. Featuring a pop-up football pitch; live panel discussions, interviews and music; and official UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 merchandise, the fan party is in situ from now till 31 July — when the final is played at Wembley.

(On Tuesday, the Fan Party closes at 5pm, reopening at 6pm ahead of the 8pm kick-off.)

More information about the semi-final screening and Trafalgar Square Fan Party can be found over on the Mayor of London's website.

Other big screens are set up round town for the action, too. Check them out.
