Binks Yard upgrades outdoor fan zone to bring Euro 2024 to Nottingham

Football fans looking to cheer on The Three Lions during this year’s UEFA European Football Championship, will be able to capture all the excitement of the live games in Germany on the East Midlands’ largest outdoor screen at Binks Yard.

Kicking off on 16 June, for the first of England’s group-stage matches against Serbia, the venue’s iconic outdoor terrace will be transformed into a lively hub for fans to come along and support the England men’s team, as they begin their journey to achieve European glory, with tickets to this first game already sold out.

For just £5 a ticket, and with screenings taking place for the duration of the tournament, in addition to enjoying the games on Binks Yard’s huge seven-metre wide, high-definition outdoor screen, fans will also be able to take advantage of its newly-upgraded outdoor area. Key updates include anewly-installed stretch tent for all-weather cover from the elements, an extended outside bar offering and food from the Binks Yard outdoor kitchen.

Ben Hicklin, head of events at Binks Yard said: “The Binks outdoor terrace has had a raft of recent upgrades, including the installation of our brand-new stretch tent, meaning there has never been a better location to cheer on The Three Lions during this year’s UEFA European Football Championship. Our location, only across the road from Nottingham train station, offers the perfect opportunity for those in surrounding areas and beyond to easily come along to support the England team in their campaign to lift the trophy.

“We’ll be transforming the Binks terrace into the ultimate fan zone, with outdoor seating, fantastic food and drinks, a live DJ, and everything fans need to capture all the excitement of the live games in Germany – but right here in Nottingham. We encourage all fans who want to have the optimal watching experience of Euro 2024, to get their tickets quick to avoid disappointment during what is set to be a fantastic tournament, with tickets to watch England’s first game on Sunday 16 June against Serbia, already sold out.”

The venue will also be showing England’s second group game against Denmark on 20 June and the team’s third game against Slovenia on 25 June. Additional dates are yet to be confirmed, dependent on England’s success in the group stages.

In addition to being able to capture the beautiful game with fellow sports fans, football lovers will also be able to enjoy food from the Binks Yard indoor and outdoor menu. And, with the first match set to take place on Father’s Day, there’s never been a better way to treat Dad.

Top menu choices for the first England match on 16 June include grass-fed beef, thyme roasted half chicken, slow cooked crispy ham hock and chestnut and butternut squash nut loaf. Diners will also be treated to a selection of must-have trimmings including garlic triple-cooked roast potatoes, seasonal buttered greens and honey glazed roast carrots. For those who don’t fancy Binks Yard’s extensive roast options, can instead opt for other standout options on the menu including chimichurri cod, chicken caesar salad and cheeseburger or BBQ burger.

Ben added: “Summers at Binks are always really special, but this year with so many fantastic sports events and a whole calendar of exciting Binks events, whether you’re a sports fan, a music lover or just looking for a fun day out with family and friends, we have something for everyone this summer.”

The upcoming Euro 2024 screenings are part of an exciting roster of summer events taking place at the popular canalside entertainment venue. Over the coming months, visitors can also enjoy the likes of Step on Festival on 13 July which is hosted by Bez from the Happy Mondays, the Old-School Hip-Hop Summer BBQ on 11 August, and The Hits of Abba – Waterloo 50th anniversary tour which is taking place on 23 August.
