Tips - What to Watch Out for at Public Screenings

We have put together a few tips for a carefree football experience:
•    Get there as early as possible - the European Championships are popular and many others want to cheer on their favourite team. We recommend getting to your favourite public screening venue as early as possible to get a (good) seat.
•    Think about alternatives - if your favourite venue is already full, have one or two alternatives in mind where you can still watch the game.
•    Don't bring a big bag - you probably won't be able to bring a gym bag or large backpack, especially at the big public venues. Save yourself some stress and pack just the essentials.
•    Sun cream or umbrella - check the weather forecast and pack sun cream, an umbrella or jacket.
•    Take care of your valuables - it will be crowded, so make sure you keep an eye on your valuables.
