World Cup Village countdown under way

World Cup fever will hit Ashton Gate in a week's time.

Fans will be able to flock to the Bristol Sports Bar & Pizzeria and enjoy all the summer tournament's fixtures on the big screen.

The world's best players will be on show and you'll have one of the best seats outside of Russia by enjoying the beautiful game on the largest indoor pub screen in the UK.

The large Fan Village will also be set up at the stadium, sponsored by Gorilla Grass, who will be providing a seated lawn.

In the Fan Village will be a prosecco bar, Martin Miller Gin bar, cocktail bar, fish and chips and a BBQ.

The Village will open at 11am for afternoon kick-offs and 5pm for evening kick-offs, featuring the bigger games of the tournament.

Fans will remember the success of the Fan Village and Sports Bar during Euro 2016, with England and Poland matches attracting huge crowds, along with fixtures for the other home nations Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland.

The host nation Russia will kick-off the World Cup when they face Saudi Arabia.
