Knowsley Social doubles up as North West’s biggest England fan zone for the Euro’s
2 years ago
The North West’s biggest football fan park is coming to Knowsley for Euro 2020 this summer.
Three giant screens, a mega sound and lighting system plus a fully-stocked bar have been set up on The Knowsley Estate for 1,000 people to watch England take on Scotland on June 18 and again when the team take on Czech Republic on 22 June.
Kick-off is set for 8pm on the 18th at Wembley Stadium and will be the Three Lions’ second match of the tournament.
Organisers are promising a “big game atmosphere” and a free beer, cider, house spirit and mixer or soft drink with each ticket starting at just £5.50.
Live music will be played on the night before and after the historic match with a huge build up also taking place underneath a giant big top tent as doors open at 5pm.
Danny Thompson, co-founder of The Knowsley Social, said:
“The atmosphere here is set to be unrivalled anywhere in the North West and will be as close to the real thing as you can get.
“We’ve already had an unbelievable amount of success with our events and the feedback from people is that they’ve had the absolute best time.
“Our England v Scotland match is going to be no exception and is guaranteed to be the best place to watch the game this summer with special effects, a world-class sound system and the three giant screens.”
The event has been put together by Creamfields supremo Chris Quayle and Mr Thompson, with more than 18,000 tickets already sold for all performances across their festival.
Watch as we take you inside the big top as the @KnowsleySocial gets set to launch.

The England v Scotland clash will be shown on big screens underneath a blue purpose-built tent structure which holds 1,000 people and is the North West’s biggest event space.
The tent contains 200 socially-distanced pods, sectioned off by white fences, and includes VIP areas for football fans to cheer on England and party the night away
