and live on Freeview channel 276
Just one year after the Lionesses won the Women’s European Championships at Wembley Stadium, Sarina Wiegman’s side are hoping to go one better this weekend when England face Spain in the Women’s World Cup final.
A stunning 3-1 win earlier this week sent England’s lionesses through to the nation’s first senior World Cup final since 1966 and Newcastle is gearing up for what could be a once in a lifetime event.
The largest event to watch the final is taking place at NE1’s Screen On The Green, described as an open air cinema in Old Eldon Square. The site will see coverage of the game start at 10:30am to give fans a chance to settle in ahead of the final. Deckchairs and seating will be out and available to the public with all seating being first come, first served.
After a hugely successful Men’s World Cup over the winter, NX are also bringing back their fanzone for this weekend's fixture. Tickets for the morning watchalong are available through the venue’s website at a cost of £7.75. The city centre club and music venue is opening its doors at 9:30am ahead of the 11am kick off Down Under.
