Details of a planned fan zone in Greenwich Park for next year’s Euro 2020 tournament have been revealed in planning documents.
It shows the main viewing area located a scenic spot in front of the Queen’s House.
Plans show a sizable area with food stands off to the east and a separate section to the west. Documents reveal the area “will consist of a main stage, two broadcast screens, delay screens, various event spaces, concession stalls, food and drink outlets” and that there will be “live and recorded music as part of the regulated entertainment. Areas of the site will be floodlit for public safety and way finding.
The event will use Blackheath Circus Field at the southern end of Greenwich Park (between Charlton Road and Shooter’s Hill Road) as a holding area for service vehicles with support equipment and facilities.”
The Greater London Authority are planning a number across London, with the final to be held in the capital next summer. Access during major games will require a ticket through a ballot system- with 30,000 people across an entire day consisting of three matches.
Enabling work would begin on 24th May 2020 with the site returned to normal on 25th July.
Discussions are ongoing with Southeastern and Thameslink – though as things stand Southeastern will not be in charge by the time it commences. A shuttle bus is being looked at to run to North Greenwich tube station.
