Belfast fanzone all set for World Cup play-offs

By Staff Reporter

Excitement is reaching fever pitch as football fans get ready for Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to try and earn their place at the 2018 World Cup finals.

And now there's a new fanzone for the Green and White Army at South 13 (S13), the massive former B&Q store on Boucher Road, Belfast.

The venue is expected to be popular as it's close to Windsor Park, where the first play-off match will take place on November 9.

The new S13 fanzone offers free entry and gives families the chance to enjoy supporting their team in a safe, convenient location with plenty of parking.

Fans can also wear their team's football strip, unlike in many venues in the province.

The S13 fanzone aims to offer a family-friendly experience, complete with bouncy castles, face-painting, penalty shoot-outs and a chance to win prizes, so children will be entertained while their parents can cheer on their team.

Gary Flynn from S13 said: "This is the biggest fanzone in Belfast, complete with a 40 square- metre screen, live music and 10,000 people capacity.

"The atmosphere is going to be electric."
