Belfast’s Titanic Quarter is set to play host to screenings of all Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland Euro 2016 matches.

The event is being hosted by Belsonic with a 10,000 capacity open air arena boasting the biggest screen in the country and broadcasting all Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland group games live.

The arena has full bar facilities, delicious and varied food options, a funfair, entertainment before and after games and various family friendly games and activities.

Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill said: “The support during qualification was incredible and a big part of us getting to the finals in the first place. We’re grateful so many are making the trip to France, but anyone watching the games back in Northern Ireland has a crucial role to play as well.

“The idea of thousands of Northern Ireland fans gathering at the Euros Fanzone at Titanic back in Belfast will be another huge motivation for the players.

“Having visited the Fanzone site and spoken to the guys running it, I’m certain it’ll be the next best thing to actually being out there with us.”
