Tickets for World Cup village sold out

Tickets for Saturday's World Cup screenings at Ashton Gate's Fan Village have proved so popular that they have now sold out.

Up to 5,000 free tickets have been snapped up in a little over 24 hours, allowing football supporters to watch Saturday's Sweden v England contest on the stadium's big screen.

The venue has become the place to watch football's grandest tournament and it looks set to host the biggest fan gathering for the quarter-final in the UK.

Fans should note that more tickets may become available but they are advised to keep an eye on Bristol Sport's social platforms for the latest updates.

Gareth Southgate’s men face Sweden in the quarter-finals of the competition tomorrow (Saturday, July 7th) at 3pm.

For those with tickets for tomorrow's event, the fan village will be open from 12noon, with food and beverage stalls available, as well as a Pimms tent.*

Please note, there is only one entrance into the fan village, via the Ashton Road and Marina Dolman way. Winterstoke Road and Raynes Road entrances are for emergency access and exit only.**

Toilets, refreshments and free drinking water is available from South stand concessions, while there will be a family area in the coffee shop.

Allow plenty of time to pass ticket checks and security searches. Please note, no megaphones or loud hailers are allowed in the fan village. No Rucksacks, holdalls, bum bags, shopping bags, shoulder strap bags or larger bags will be allowed in the Fan Village.

There will be a zero tolerance on poor behaviour and pyrotechnics are strictly prohibited. No alcohol, soft drinks or food will be allowed to be taken into the fan village. Water is allowed.

*A maximum of four free tickets can be collected at any one time

**There is no re-admittance to the fan village once an individual leaves. The outdoor fan village close after full time of England’s game, but the sports bar will remain open for Russia vs Croatia
