Football fans will be able to watch the Euro 2016 football matches on the big screen for free at The Light Cinema in Wisbech this month.

The cinema will also be screening selected Poland games during the tournament, which gets underway on Friday night.

General manager Matt Sparrow said: “We love football and we hope that lots of people will come along and watch to make this a special event. I think there’ll be a great atmosphere.”

Initially the cinema will be showing group stage matches and the final, with more matches coming up if England makes it through to the next stage of the competition.

Confirmed matches so far include England’s opening game against Russia on Sturday, which kicks off at 8pm, and the clash with Wales next Thursday afternoon, June, 16, at 2pm.

Later that evening, fans will also have the chance to enjoy Poland’s clash with world champions Germany, which kicks off at 8pm.

And England’s final group match against Slovakia will also be screened on Monday, June 20 at 8pm.

Tickets for each of the screenings are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

The first 11 people through the door will also get a free large popcorn. For more details, visit www.lightcinemas.co.uk.
