Apart from obviously enjoying getting together to watch the football, we hold these events in part because of a concern to support families at what can be a time of stress - on average the UK sees 25-38% increases in domestic violence around major Football Tournaments. There has been surprisingly little coverage of this issue this year, but see this article from 2014 - https://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/jun/08/police-fear-rise-domestic-violence-world-cup
. We offer a fun family friendly atmosphere for all as an alternative way to enjoy the World Cup.
Do think about who you could invite!
Monday, 18 June, England v Tunisia, kick off 19:00
Sunday, 24 June, England v Panama, kick off 13:00
Thursday, 28 June, England v Belgium, kick off 19:00
We’ll keep going as long as England can....we can always hope!
