Are you a football fanatic? Are you the one that kicks your flatmates in the shins for calling rugby or AFL “football”, or calling football “soccer”? Then you’re going to LOVE Sydney this June and July! FIFA World Cup Fan Fest events will be taking over the city of Sydney from the 11th June – 12th July – and everything is free! Here’s a quick run down of some of the events:
LIVE PUBLIC BROADCASTS
3 massive screens will be floating on Cockle Bay, with a 4th mounted in Tumbalong park. Games will be broadcast live on the screens, and anyone can go! Take some mates and enjoy the games.
Some of Australia’s best street soccer players will be taking to the pitch – on water! There’ll be a floating soccer pitch on Cockle Bay and, once again, it’s free to watch the games.
If that wasn’t enough, the Fan Fest website assures us that there will be a “dynamic entertainment programme” to be announced. To keep up to date with what’s happening and when, check out the FIFA Fan Fest website:
