Nottingham Castle confirmed to host screening of World Cup semi-final

Nottingham Castle will screen England’s historic World Cup semi-final against Croatia on Wednesday.

The iconic venue played host to the quarter-final win over Sweden on Saturday when around 3,000 people came together to cheer on Gareth Southgate’s team.

Wednesday evening’s event will be ticket-only. Tickets will be FREE, but a £1 fee will be applied per transaction, to help cover ticketing costs.

A maximum of 2 adult and 3 child (under-16) tickets can be secured per transaction. Adults will not be permitted entry using a child ticket, and proof of age may be required.

Gates open at 5pm and entertainment will again be provided by Gem in the build-up.

Tickets will be available from 1pm on Tuesday 10 July via whatsonnottingham.com, and they should be printed out prior to arrival.

Full catering will be available, meaning that hot food, soft drinks and alcohol will be on sale. Fans can bring a small bottle of water into the venue and will be able to refill for free.

Councillor Jon Collins, Leader of Nottingham City Council, said: “We’re glad that so many Nottingham people seemed to enjoy Saturday’s event at the Castle with around 3,000 fans coming together to share the experience.

“It was a real shame to see the behaviour of a very small minority of people in the city centre afterwards. We will be working with the police to try to identify those involved.

“Saturday’s event was organised at very short notice and we have spent a good deal of time over the past couple of days reviewing where we can improve.

“I’m confident that Wednesday’s event will be a real success and we’re looking forward to see fans of all ages cheering England to the World Cup final.”

Public attending the event are again asked to note the following entry conditions:

  • No outside food or drink permitted apart from a single bottle of water. Food and drink, including alcohol, will be on sale within the venue.
  • Please dress for the weather.
  • No chairs, but blankets are fine.
  • No club football colours or kit – we want people to show as much support as possible for the national team, just not individual football clubs.
  • Children under 16 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • Please do not bring glass bottles, fireworks or flares to the event.
  • Animals, with the exception of assistance dogs, are not permitted in the venue.
  • A full search will be in place upon entry to the site.
  • This is a smoke-free event.
