Watch the first set of Premier League matches at a South Bank screening this weekend

Samantha Willis

It’s time for London to get excited about football again, post-waistcoat. The good folk at Sky Sports are hosting outdoor screenings of this weekend’s matches on a supersize telly in South Bank’s Bernie Spain Gardens.

Their hearts are set on reawakening your football spirit, currently filed in a part of your brain marked ‘World Cup 2018’, so they’ve come up with an immersive experience to kick-start your season. Their little outdoor door hub will house a VR experience (we’re not sure what that entails, but it sounds intriguing), the ‘Soccer AM’ Volley Challenge, a FIFA ‘19 gaming area and the opportunity to have your photo taken with the Premier League trophy.

Doors open at 10am on both days and fixtures include:

Saturday August 11: Newcastle vs Tottenham and Derby vs Leeds

Sunday August 12: Liverpool vs West Ham and Arsenal vs Man City

Beats watching from the sofa. Back of the net!
