Devonshire Green screening for Lionesses in World Cup final

England fans sit on Devonshire Green watching a football match on the big screen

Sheffield will come together to cheer on the Lionesses in the FIFA World Cup Final as the city hosts a free screening for families to watch the match.

A big screen will be on Devonshire Green for fans to watch England take on Spain in the final on Sunday 20 August at 11am. Fans are invited to come along from 9:30am to enjoy the match, which will be shown live from Stadium Australia in Sydney. There will also be food stalls and soft drinks available.

Councillor Martin Smith, Chair of the Economic Development and Skills Committee, said: “Sheffield is the home of football and the legacy from the incredible Women’s Euros still lives on in the city. Last year the Lionesses brought home the European title, and now England has a chance at World Cup glory, Sheffield will be out in force to support the Lionesses on Devonshire Green in a safe, family-friendly environment. I encourage football fans and families to come down and soak up the atmosphere as we cheer England on and bring it home again.

“It is fantastic to see so many people getting behind the Lionesses, it’s a testament to their huge success. That’s why Sheffield is inviting everyone down to roar with the Lionesses and enjoy the game together. Good luck to England!”
