Rhyl’s fanzone will be open again on Sunday despite Wales’ exit from Euro 2016.
Around 7,500 people turned up at the Events Arena on Wednesday night to watch Wales’ 2-0 semi-final defeat to Portugal – the fan zone had been set up with two days notice following campaigning from the local community and politicians.
Denbighshire County Council and Rhyl Town Council confirmed on Friday that the fan zone will screen not only the final between France and Portugal on Sunday evening (8pm), but also the Wimbledon men’s singles final between Andy Murray and Milos Raonic (2pm start).
The fan zone will open early at 1pm – but plans to open a bar on-site have been cancelled. Instead, visitors will again be allowed to bring a limited amount of their own alcohol in cans or plastic bottles. There will also be security checks on bags at several entry points.
Organisers repeated their call for fans to ensure it remains a family friendly event and anyone caught in any public disorder will be asked to leave immediately. On Wednesday, three youths were thrown out of the fanzone after flares were let off.
