Football fans can cheer their England heroes on in style tomorrow.

Roy Hodgson’s men take on Wales in their second Euro 2016 group stage game tomorrow and the game will be screened live on the giant 20 metre-high screen at Park Lane – with local bars and restaurants offering a range of special offers and competitions.

This is definitely one of the games that everyone will want to see. And what better way to watch it than for free on a giant screen and with lots of great food and drink offers available from the bars and restaurants near by?

The Fanzone will open from 10am, giving supporters plenty of time to get in the mood before kick off at 2pm.

Created by Sunderland Bid in conjunction with local venues, The Fanzone has proved a hit since it was launched last week and tomorrow’s game is expected to draw the crowds.

“This is definitely one of the games that everyone will want to see,” said Bid chief executive Ken Dunbar.

“And what better way to watch it than for free on a giant screen and with lots of great food and drink offers available from the bars and restaurants near by?”

The Fanzone is screening all the Euro 2016 matches along with F1, Ascot, Wimbledon, cricket and athletics.

And music fans will also get in the action with plans to showcase highlights from festivals such as Glastonbury.
