Where to watch the Women’s Euros final as Lionesses face Germany
England is once again on the verge of football greatness with the Lionesses storming through to the finals of the Women’s Euros.
We’ll be facing Germany at Wembley Stadium on Sunday after England defeated Sweden 4-0 in the semi-finals.
As with all great sporting events, the best place to soak up the atmosphere (without forking out for a ticket to the actual game) is going to be in one of Manchester’s many brilliant pubs.
Plenty of venues across the city centre will be wheeling out the bunting and the big screens for the occasion.
We’ve picked out some of the best and the biggest places to watch the Women’s Euro final.
Piccadilly Gardens fan-zone
The massive expanse of decking from the Christmas Markets has now been reimagined as a fan-zone for the Women’s Euros.
Ahead of the big final, Manchester City Council is adding in a second screen and doubling the crowd capacity, with people admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Manchester’s new-ish giant sports bar Box is, of course, screening the final this Sunday.
The huge venue has screens all over the place, so you’ll never be far from the action if you pick the Deansgate bar to watch the Women’s Euro final.
Escape to Freight Island
The massive screen at Escape to Freight Island will be taken over by the footie this weekend.
The huge street food venue near Piccadilly will show the match at the Platform space, with free tables available to book here.

Pen & Pencil
The Northern Quarter’s Pen & Pencil is going to have the Women’s Euros final on its big screen too.
Perfect if you fancy sipping cocktails instead of pints while you watch the footie (though there are PLENTY of pints on offer too.
The Brotherhood is rebranding itself as The Sisterhood this summer in its commitment to celebrate women’s sport.
The sports bar, which is female-owned, will be screening the game right through its bars in Manchester and Leeds.
Nell’s at Kampus has been one of our go-tos for the Women’s Euro games up to now, but it’s closed this Sunday for a private event – so it’s over to their sister site at Common we go!
Kick off is at 5pm in the Kestrel Suite. You can book, but walk ups will be available too.
