Big screen to show final

The World Cup final between France and New Zealand will be shown on a big screen at the Stade de France.

France will be making their first appearance in a World Cup final since losing to New Zealand in 1987, and Sunday's match sees them face the All Blacks again. New Zealand have home advantage at Eden Park in Auckland.

The French Rugby Federation (FFR) had previously announced that the courtyard at the Hotel de Ville in Paris would be open from Friday to Sunday for a festival of rugby, with rugby-themed events running alongside screenings of the third-place match between Wales and Australia, and the final.

The Stade de France screening will run alongside that, with French supporters being urged to reserve tickets in advance.

Stade de France officials announced entry will be free for the occasion, available from the stadium website.
