THE whole country is gearing up to hopefully watch England win Euro 2020 on Sunday with many people scrambling last minute to book tables at pubs showing it.

But is your town showing the game on a big screen?

Many people in East Lancashire places like Blackburn, Darwen and Hyndburn thought this would be a good idea, so The Lancashire Telegraph asked readers if they thought the match should be played on a big screen. 

Here’s what people said:

Nicola Jane Grimshaw from Blackburn said: “Yes, every advertising screen even the one outside the council itself - show some pride for England, they did for the World Cup so why not the Euros. It's coming home.”

Sarah Emily from Darwen said: “Yes! Darwen has a big town square ideal for a big screen, and it’s surrounded by local pubs and food places too so a boost for the local businesses as well.”

Jen Tomlinson said: “Is the one in town not showing it? Be ideal with the couple of small bars there, give them a needed financial boost too.”

Currently, there are no plans for Blackburn with Darwen to show the game on a screen anywhere, so for those with no reservations anywhere, they may just have to watch it at home.

Cath Lucy Howarth thinks the game is already being shown enough places. She said: “No, it’s already dominating TV for people who don't like football.

“Enjoy it all you like and congrats etc but don't shove it in everyone's face.”

Nicole Richmond was worried it would be blamed for a rise in Covid-19 cases.

She said: “It would be nice if they did, however, it’s unlikely, and football will then be blamed for the ‘rise in cases’ over the next few weeks.

“Not everyone can get to the pub to watch it (fully booked) but it’s nice to have the atmosphere, they should (probably won’t though).”

Ricky McGrew from Darwen said: “No! Covid cases are still on the rise and all these football hooligans aren't helping.”

Marc Parry from Blackburn said: “No, get in the pubs they've been closed for a year.”

Kevin Nolan said: “How about the cinema just put it on their big screens? Plenty of room and vodka tango ice blasts...missing a trick here.”

Connor McDonald from Hyndburn said: “Providing the weather is fine, then why not They’ve spent a fortune on it, so why not put it to good use? It would bring people together.”

Jill Hetherington from Hyndburn said: “Yes it cost enough to make that square, let's use it, however the weather forecast is not looking great Sunday night.”
