ITV Reveals Plans for World Cup Fan Park



ITV is preparing a World Cup Fan Park at the old Granada Studios in Manchester. This summer’s World Cup inspires our youth to get involved more in sports, which is great for fun, exercise and personal discipline. ITV will provide a morning programme for youth to promote sports involvement.

TV are to bring a World Cup ‘fan park’ to Manchester where fans and families can watch the tournament on a big screen at the old Granada Studios.

World Cup games will be screened live from Brazil every match day throughout the tournament which starts in June, at the Manchester event called ITV Fever Pitch.

450 tonnes of sand will be brought in to create a Brazilian-style beach soccer stadium at the heart of the fan park, with the games broadcast live on the arena’s giant 40 square metre screen.

During the group stages, the arena will also host beach soccer matches before the live action from Brazil, organised by Beach Soccer Worldwide, with fans being able to watch England’s beach soccer team take on some of the best players in the world from Italy, Uruguay, Costa Rica and Germany.

ITV will be using the World Cup, which runs from June 12 to July 13, to inspire youngsters to get active and take part in sport by running a morning community programme at the fan park, before it opens to the public, in partnership with Join In.

Schools and sports clubs from the North West will be given the opportunity to come down and have a go at beach football, with coaching provided by professional players. This programme will be part of a wider partnership between ITV and Join In, to raise awareness and encourage more volunteers into local sport.
