A Covered Fan Park Showing all of 2022’s World Cup Tournaments is Coming to Manchester

And there’ll be some familiar footballing legends providing live commentary throughout each match…

The eagerly awaited World Cup is set to take place across the colder months this year, with it being hosted live from Qatar in the midst of winter from November 21st to December 18th.

Because of this, footie fans are having to abandon their usual flip flop and shorts sunshine attire and retreat to the cosy pubs for a pint of stout, but luckily for us Mancs a huge covered football park will be erected at Soccer 6’s in Trafford Park to host the ultimate, immersive viewing experience.  

Following sold out Euro 2021 Fan Parks, which saw 25,000 fans come together to cheer on England’s historic Euro campaign, 4TheFans is bringing back the big game atmosphere and unmatched fan experience, this time without any restrictions.

Fans can expect huge anti-glare screens, world-class sound systems, exclusive bar and food traders, DJs, competitions and giveaways, all brought to you by a 4TheFans host. 

Each match screening will also welcome a genuine football legend, bringing back 4TheFans favourites from last year, including; Paul Merson, Tony Cottee, Trevor Sinclair, Wes Brown and Stuart Downing

With all the atmosphere of a big game crowd, plus celebratory special FX such as pyrotechnics and cO2 cannons, 4TheFans Fan Parks are an all-out entertaining, friendly and welcoming experience – much more so than watching the game in a pub or traditional fanzone. 

The football legends confirmed for Manchester are:

  • Monday November 21st: Wes Brown for England v Iran. Doors open at 10am for 1pm kick off.
  • Friday November 25th: Joleon Lescott for England v USA. Doors open at 5pm for 7pm kick off. 
  • Tuesday November 29th: Wes Brown for England v Wales/Scotland/Ukraine. Doors open 5pm for  7pm kick off.

4TheFans will be taking over Trafford Park for the full duration of the tournament from November 21st to December 18th. The line-up of local food vendors will be confirmed at the end of August.

General admission starts from £12pp, while VIP tickets start from £30. Season tickets are available for all three games in England’s group and the final, with prices starting from £40. Groups of six can also get 30% off their tickets.
