Wales at the Euros: MP leads calls for Rhyl fan zone



The Vale of Clwyd MP has led calls to set up a fan zone in Rhyl for Wales’ historic Euro 2016 semi final.

Dr James Davies says he has contacted Denbighshire County Council about the possibility of setting up a big screen for Wednesday night’s match against Portugal, following calls from local people.

On Friday night, hundreds watched Wales’ 3-1 win over Belgium at the Mona showground on Anglesey – the only such fan zone to be set up in the North for the quarter final.

Ahead of the game, plans to set up a fan zone in Wrexham town centre were scrapped. The council said such an event would have cost between £15,000 and £20,000 – and months of preparation work would have been needed.
