Fan Fests

Bristol 2018 fan festsFan Fest sites are areas in the city which provide spaces for the screening of live matches. These spaces have been selected due to their size and relative location within the city. The sites allow fans to travel to the city and still enjoy the tournament even if they don’t have tickets for the games. In Germany during the 2006 World Cup, there were over 18 million visitors to the Fan Fest sites, offering spectators areas for watching live matches, refreshments and entertainment. Bristol’s proposed Come and Play sites offer spectators further areas to enjoy the tournament. These sites can be used for tourist information but are also designed to encourage visitors to play the sport in mini tournaments across the city.

Bristol is a city that already hosts an annual programme of events and festivals that fill the calendar from April to October. Its blend of open spaces and superb international venues means that it is extremely well placed to host a number of simultaneous events during the 2018 World Cup.

Our intention is to spread the excitement of the World Cup across both the city and the region, bringing the World Cup to Bristol and the South West and showcasing the area to the rest of the world. The locations proposed for the 2018 World Cup in Bristol are;
