As we’ve previously reported, the Sheffield attraction will be based at Devonshire Green this summer. Launching for this summer's European Championships, Fan City will screen every England Euro 2024 match.

They’ve announced plans for a free to enter event for the opening match between Scotland and Germany on Friday, June 14.

For big England matches, organisers have booked a host of football legends, all with Sheffield links, to appear at the screenings.

You can see below who is lined up:

  • Sunday, June 16 - Chris Waddle and Tony Currie will appear at the England v Serbia screening

  • Thursday, June 20 - Danny Wilson will appear at the England v Denmark screening

  • Tuesday, June 25 - Viv Anderson will appear at the England v Slovenia screening

Chris Waddle said: “Fan villages like this are like a New Year’s Eve party. People just enjoy it, it's a lot of fun and there is loads going on. If you enjoy your football, you enjoy a party, then why miss it?”

Fan City aims to offer football fans the ultimate Euro 2024 party. England games will be ticketed while all non-England games will also be screened for free. The attraction will boast a food village serving up an array of global street food and thirsty fans will be able to choose from a selection of beverages, from ice-cold beers to signature cocktails.

Fan City will also be teaming up with vintage clothing store Glass Onion to launch a rare Football Shirt Exhibition at their Division Street store from Tuesday, June 11.
