Smash-hit fan zone Road to Victory returns to Manchester for Euro 2024

The scenes they produced were among the very best highlights of the Qatar World Cup.

The tournament hasn’t even started yet but you can consider our excitement well and truly through the roof because we can now confirm that Road to Victory, the hugely successful fan zone which debuted at the 2022 World Cup, is coming back to Manchester for Euro 2024.

Presented by entertainment pioneers AIX Live – ‘amplified immersive experience’ – Road to Victory (Rtv) first landed at Depot Mayfield for its maiden tournament but now the huge fan park is making its much-anticipated return at a brand new venue just down the road.

Set to take over popular beer garden and food hall Diecast for the first time, RtV is set to welcome around 3,000 fans for every Euros match and will be screening every England game for as long as we stay in the tournament.

And it all kicks off with the Three Lions‘ opener against Serbia on 16 June, which starts at 8pm but don’t worry, the party will already be in full swing hours before then.

With over 30,000 square feet of Euros action, including space for up to 2,500 standing fans in the sprawling Brooklyn Beer Hall, multiple screens and one large festival LED screen, this place is going to be absolutely bouncing.


They make sure of that too, creating an incredible atmosphere with a fully immersive light show, making the entire venue light up yellow or red as corresponding coloured cards are given out and other big match moments (hopefully lots of goals), as well plenty of music, cheering and chants throughout.

Pre and post-match entertainment is great too, with DJs from start to finish, live on-stage hosts hyping up the crowd, quizzes, special guests, competitions and much, much more.


The Road to Victory team has fine-tuned the experience since their inaugural event in 2022 and given how electric the crowd was back then, we can only imagine how good this summer is going to be.

With Diecast‘s unreal food menu also on offer, you’ll be just as sorted for scran as you are the sport. They’ll be serving up their famous ‘NeoPan’ (Neapolitan meets NYC) style pizzas in various flavours, as well as other easy picky bits like their tater tots straight from the Ramona and Firehouse kitchen.

Standing tickets cost £12.50 or just a tenner for early bird ticket holders. Early access has already gone live on the Road to Victory website and you can get ready to grab general admission from 9am on Tuesday, 28 May.


Alternatively, if you’re looking for hospitality packages – which include one pizza per person, sharing tots, plus table service with ice cold beers to your table for up to eight people per booking – they’ll set you back just £20, or you can enquire about larger booking by emailing [email protected].

Fans are also being encouraged to keep an eye on Road to Victory and Diecast social media channels for further booking links and updates ahead of each game. Let’s hope to see more scenes like this next month. It’s coming home.
