As England head through to the Euro 2024 semi-final, one Manchester venue has announced it will be hosting the game... with a great deal for the first 200 fans through the doors.

The Three Lions have gone through to the semi-finals and are set to face off either Turkey or the Netherlands on Wednesday, July 10. Gareth Southgate's side put on an impressive display in the closing moments of tonight's quarter-final against Switzerland.

The team went through on a magical clean sweep of penalties after a tricky 1-1 match with added and extra time. Following the final whistle, Manchester's Albert Hall announced it will be screening Wednesday's game.

Kick off will be at 8pm, so the Albert Hall is opening its doors from 5pm for fans to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy pre-match commentary. Entry is £5 - but there's a deal.

Everyone who arrives between 5 and 6pm gets free entry, and the first 200 people through the door get a free can of beer each.

The venue will be hosting a big screen with the venue's full sound system, well-known by music fans who have enjoyed some iconic Manchester gigs there.

Gareth Southgate's England side is heading to the semi-finals after taking on Switzerland in the quarter-finals of Euro 2024.

England fans are on cloud nine in Manchester's AO Arena, along with a host of other fan zones and pubs showing the match in the city centre, as the team faced down Switzerland to win on a clean sweep of penalties. The last time Switzerland beat the Three Lions was back in 1981 - failing on the last 13 occasions to win matches against the England team.

But Switzerland failed to break England this Euro tournament, with Southgate's side getting five barnstorming penalties to Switzerland's three.

England had been one of the favourites heading into the tournament, but the team's performance since has not matched the hype. Southgate's men looked shaky against Slovakia in the last 16, ending in a 2-1 victory after a searing bicycle kick goal from Jude Bellingham and a goal to clinch the win from Harry Kane in the final minutes of play.

But faith has been restored as the Three Lions roared in the dying moments of the match, proving penalties were no problem this time.
