The Euro 2020 tournament might be a year late, but that’s not going to stop us diving in headfirst and making the most of the games.
And let’s be honest: all the best events including Dubai Expo 2020 take place a year late and keep the name the same.
So, if you like us, you want to watch all 51 games, then head down to the Barasti Fan Zone Euro 2020 Tent.
Euros to save our summer
If ever we’ve needed a month-long celebration of 22 men kicking a ball into a net, it’s this year. After 18 months of cancellations, postponements and no crowds, football’s second biggest competition returns. And – make some noise – there will be fans in the crowds as well.
Starting on June 11, there are more teams and more matches than ever before. In total, 24 teams will be playing across 51 matches in 12 cities across Europe.
The best place to catch the action is at the Barasti Fan Zone Euro Tent. The custom-built tent is free to enter for all matches. And as well as screening all the games, they’ll have live bands and DJs on hand to keep the atmosphere pumped.
They also have some ace drink deals, loads of football-themed games and open from midday each day.
The DubaiLAD team will be taking up residence at Barasti all the way through from the Turkey vs Italy kick-off on June 11 to the final at Wembley onSunday, July 11.
