Football is coming home!
Telford & Wrekin Council and AFC Telford United have joined forces to bring football home to the borough on Sunday for the final of the Euros.
For the first time ever there will be a dedicated FREE fan zone at the New Bucks Head: a place to watch the Euros, in fact the ONLY Fan Zone in Shropshire to watch the Euros!
AFC Telford United have teamed up with Telford & Wrekin Council to provide a giant screen on the pitch.
1,000 FREE tickets are available, on a first come first served basis.
We’ll replicate the stadium atmosphere by taking a fan park to a new level: anti-glare giant screens, the best sound system around and pre-match and post-match music.
That’s what we’ll provide – all you will need is a group of your friends and family!
Cllr Shaun Davies, leader of Telford & Wrekin Council, said:
“I’m delighted that we can provide this opportunity for local football fans to come together and watch this historic match for the England team.
“I know that many, including me, are very excited about the final on Sunday and this is a great opportunity to experience the game together with other fans.
“We so pleased to be working with AFC Telford United who have helped to provide a venue for the big screen – ensuring we’re bringing football home to the home of football in Telford!
“If you can’t be at AFC Telford United on Sunday to watch the match, don’t despair! We have so many wonderful local pubs and hospitality venues across the borough who will be showing the game and who desperately need our help after the year – please go and support them too!”
Andy Pryce, Chairman at AFC Telford United, said:
“We can finally be together again – now is our chance – and what better way to embrace that than watching the Euros together?
“We’re excited to be able to offer football fans the fanzone experience right here in Telford.”

We know many of you were hoping for a big screen in Telford Town Park. Unfortunately due to the pandemic and being able to manage numbers this isn’t possible.
