The thing at Potters Fields is called the Sure Fanzone:

I only found out about it this afternoon.

It seems that you have to enter a prize draw to get tickets.

It's a disaster. It was meant to be ticket only for a little over 100 people. In the event apparently Sky TV promoted it this morning and hundreds of drunken fans arrived only to find they couldn't get in so they blocked the pavement at Tower Bridge looking at the screen They also climbed over the fencing and the police had to be called. There were five police vans at one time trying to control the situation!

Went to the Belushis Sports Bar on Borough High Street for the 1st time to watch the England v Paraguay match - never been there before but it was really good - decent beer, good food, air conditioned (vital on a 28C day !) - I am going to watch all our matches there

Oh dear. I saw the numerous live reports and sky news which made no mention of the fact that there were only 100 tickets. It sounded like a very good fun free for all. No wonder they had trouble! Shame.

The IMAX at Waterloo isn't outdoors but it is showing some of the England games on their huge screen.

There's some info on their website

I understand from Southwark Events that the screen in future will not be visible from the road. However if Sky continue to promote the event we will have to cope with all the unhappy punters who turn up as on Saturday. Maybe we should have a sign up directing them to Canary Wharf!

the one at Canary Wharf may not show any more as there was a lot of trouble there 16 people injured-including a child hit by yobs throwing bottles. the police made them turn the screen off.

According to Metro, there was a "brawl" at the Canary Wharf screening, involving 200 people!
