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!
