SPORTS fans will be able to keep one eye on the score while out in Solihull as Touchwood hosts its family friendly Summer of Sport.

The shopping centre will broadcast live screenings of several major sporting events kicking off with England’s Euro 2024 campaign this weekend.

A family friendly fan zone will be hosted for each screened match through to July 14 in Theatre Square.

Once past the group stages all England games will be managed by an online ticketing system.

Touchwood is also set to serve up the two-week enchantment of the Wimbledon Championships tennis tournament from July 1 as Andy Murray could be set to bring the curtain down on an inspiring career.

To round off the summer celebrations, Touchwood will show the 2024 Paris Olympics from July 26 to August 11, with the Games expected to provide plenty of gold medal moments along the way.

Lucy Burnett, marketing manager at Touchwood, said: “With an array of exciting sporting events just around the corner, our Summer of Sport is the perfect destination for families to come together and watch the action unfold in the sun.

“By live screening the events, we hope to create an electric atmosphere at Touchwood for families to experience from June through to August.”
