The UEFA Euro 2016 football tournament kicks off on 10th June and what better way to watch the games than with thousands of other screaming fans? Fotballfesten will show every game of the Euro 2016 live on a big outdoor screen at Kontraskjæret, the park in front of Akershus Fortress in Oslo.
Although Norway did not qualify for this year’s tournament, you will be sure to find thousands of Norwegian and other football fans from around the world at this event. During the 2014 FIFA World Cup over 225,000 football fans attended the event and organisers are hoping for good weather to repeat the success.
General admission to the event is free, but fans can purchase fast track tickets to guarantee entrance for your favourite game. VIP seats and tables can also be reserved. Hungry and thirsty fans will also be happy to know food and drinks will be for sale.
