Fanzones

When Wales plays in its first World Cup final since June 1958 fans will be able to share in the excitement in not one but two Fanzones to be set up on the High Street and Tŷ Pawb.

Big screens will be put up at both locations and Tŷ Pawb will be a dedicated family friendly Fanzone. The screen will be in the food court, the bar and food court will be open and there’ll be music and football related activities before the games for the evening kick off matches.

On the High Street the evening matches will have live entertainment on a large stage.

The Fanzones will be supporting not only the Welsh team in the competition but also the daytime and evening economies in Wrexham.

Cllr Nigel Williams, Lead member for the Economy and Regeneration, said, “Wrexham has such a rich history with football as the Football Association of Wales was founded here in the Wynnstay arms in 1876. To many, football is the beating heart of Wrexham and I know they will want to come together to celebrate and cheer on our national side.

“We’re also inviting schools to get involved with primaries invited to the morning screenings at Tŷ Pawb and secondaries invited to the High Street screenings.”

“We’re in the early stages of planning and will bring you more details as they’re confirmed.”
