Festivals across the UK are making a big decision this week about whether they will screen the final two World Cup games which are taking place this weekend.
This summer’s tournament will culminate with the third place play-off game on Saturday (July 14) at 3pm, before the final takes place at 4pm on Sunday.
One of these two games will definitely feature England, with Gareth Southgate’s side set to play Croatia tomorrow evening (July 11) for a place in Sunday’s final. That game will be screened live in the grounds of Hyde Park’s BST festival site in central London.
Four major festivals are taking place this weekend in the UK: Latitude, BST, Lovebox and Citadel. NME has contacted all four events to ascertain which, if any, festivals will be showing the two World Cup games.
Latitude confirmed to NME this afternoon (July 10) that they will be screening both the third place play-off and the final on the big screen on the Film and Music Stage. If England make it to the final, the match will then be shown on big screens throughout the festival site.
Citadel Festival, which takes place on Sunday, have also told NME that they will be screening the World Cup Final at 4pm.
We are still awaiting word on whether BST will show either game, while Lovebox have yet to confirm if they will be screening the third place play-off on Saturday.
This week, Danny Dyer’s Eastenders character made his prediction for England’s big semi-final game against Croatia.
