WIRRAL football fans will be able to watch England's World Cup semi-final clash at Prenton Park tonight.

Tranmere Rovers will work in conjunction with the Council to arrange the showing on a pitch-side 7m x 7m LED screen.

England will take on Croatia in the World Cup semi-final from 7pm.

Rovers chairman Mark Palios said: "It is 28 years since England were last in a World Cup semi-final, a feat they had achieved only once since winning the Cup in 1966 prior to this year’s tournament.

"The North West is a hotbed of football and it seemed right to give people in the Wirral community an opportunity to watch such a critical game at the home of Wirral football.

"It’s a great opportunity to make some memories that will last a lifetime.”

The screen will be placed in front of the Kop stand with around 5,000 spectators able to watch the match from the comfort of a seat.

Food and drink will be available throughout the evening and viewers will be able to eat and drink from their seats but no drinks will be allowed in from outside of the stadium.

Gates will open from 5pm to allow viewers to watch the pre-match build up and will close by 10.30pm.

Parking will be free but there will be a £2 entrance fee to watch the game with no concessions.

There is a limited number of wheelchair bays available so recommend that these are pre-booked through the Tranmere ticket office on 033 3014 4452.

No seats can be reserved and will be issued at a first come first served, with entrance by cash on turnstiles.
