It will be as a supplement to the fan zones during the UEFA European Football Championship matches.

A football park can be created near the Yubileiny sports complex. This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the Committee for Physical Culture and Sports of St. Petersburg.

“The UEFA EURO 2020 Organizing Committee has come up with an initiative to organize a football park during the European Football Championship on the territory adjacent to the Yubileiny sports complex. ” The positive experience of organizing such an event in this territory was obtained within the framework of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, ” the committee said.

So, the park should become a point of attraction for vacationers with families. Visitors will be offered a cultural and entertainment program, football simulators, participation in master classes from coaches, autograph sessions with football stars.

However, the committee emphasizes that the football park is not a third fan zone. This means that there are no plans to broadcast football matches publicly.
