As Glasgow gets set to proudly co-host UEFA EURO 2020 this summer, we are delighted to announce that alongside the four matches being played at Hampden Park and across the rest of Europe (June 11 – July 11), our official UEFA EURO 2020 Glasgow Fan Zone will be open every day throughout the tournament, at Glasgow Green.
The official UEFA EURO 2020 Glasgow Fan Zone will provide a safe and COVID secure environment for Scotland fans and visitors alike to connect with and celebrate the tournament. A festival atmosphere will be created, providing an opportunity for communities to gather together and enjoy an exciting programme of sporting and cultural activity.
There are multiple sessions available to book, with up to 6000 people able to attend the ticketed Fan Zone (split into two sessions per day).
The Fan Zone will be a largely seated venue and will be subject to relevant Scottish Government physical distancing requirements. There will be large screens showing UEFA EURO 2020 matches, as well as a range of food and beverages showcasing the very best of Scottish produce.
Alongside the screened matches there will be a 10m Festival Tower hosting a range of sporting, cultural and digital content, as well as a family friendly sports activity programme encouraging everyone to get involved in the action. This includes a multi-use sports pitch showcasing community groups from across the city who will be part of the celebrations, as well as many other chances to get involved.
Cultural events will take place on days when there are no matches – and the majority of afternoons when there is only an evening match – and will be viewable only from the Food & Beverage Garden area. The Fan Zone will be a largely seated venue, subject to relevant physical distancing requirements and all performances must be booked in advance.
The performances will be ticketed and will be largely free events, except for six selected performances priced at £20 per table, or £10 for an accessible ticket with access to the viewing platform for one person plus a free companion and will be available to book at 10am on Thursday 10th June via glasgowfanzone.seetickets.com
Visitors to the Green can expect fantastic performances from some of Scotland’s most exciting musicians. Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite will spin some tunes from his vinyl collection on Sunday 4 July, funk soul act Tom McGuire & The Brassholes will join a bill of emerging talent for a paid-for New Music Night on Thursday 8 July and festival favourites Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5 will close the party on the afternoon of Sunday 11 July ahead of the EURO 2020 final.
The programme will give visitors a flavour of some of the city’s most-loved festivals, with a number of special collaborations planned including two evenings of entertainment from Celtic Connections priced at £20 a table, featuring the likes of Tide Lines and Kinnaris Quintet on Thursday 24 June and leading folk band Rura on Friday 9 July.
