The Tigulio Car Park in St.Julians will once again be the venue that will host Malta’s largest outdoor screen and guarantee all football fans an unforgettable atmosphere during the World Cup games to be screened during the months of June and July.
Philippe Gatt an organiser of this event said “For the past 16 years, in organising the screening of these World Cups and European Football Championships, we have always been successful in entertaining and give both locals and tourists the opportunity to be part of matches yet away from the stadium.” He continued “that, thanks to the constant support of the St. Julians Local Council over these years, the Tigulio Car Park venue is one of the best and most appropriate venues for such events.”
St. Julians Mayor Mr Peter Bonello explained that “This year as in previous years we are keen to support this event organised by Massive Promotions because we believe that it is an additional attraction and facility for many tourists that visit and reside in and around our locality during these peak months.”
Mr Bonello also said “that the car parking facility of this venue will only be closed off to the public for eleven matches throughout the whole World Cup to reduce any possible inconvenience.” Car owners will not be allowed to park after 6.30pm but access to the Scotts supermarket for shopping will be allowed. This event in itself attracts large amounts of supporters and all the business community in the Spinola Area benefits.
Edward Mifsud another of the organisers said that “The Tigulio Fanzone will be the only outdoor giant screen in Malta – measuring 8 metres by 6 metres – to be projecting the games on a fully HD Digital Projector thanks to the local agent of Infocus, Jos Vincenti & Co which for the last 16 years has been our projection suppliers.
The games, which will be screened live through Melita’s recently launched High Definition TV system, at the Tigulio Football Fanzone will feature amongst other teams Italy, England and Germany from the preliminary round, the second round, the quarter-finals, the semi-finals and the final. All the games that will be screened are those that are showing at 20.30hrs. The first match to be screened will be England vs USA on Saturday 12th June.
Massive Promotions has been associated with major football events for the past 16 years where thousands of keen supporters have attended and followed its organised events with much anticipation. We would like to invite all the general public to keep up to date with all that’s going on at the World Cup Tigulio Fanzone through our facebook group and upload photos & videos.
Entrance will be at a nominal fee of €2 which however could be redeemed as a €2 voucher at the bar. Tickets could be purchased in advance from Pizza Hut, Saddles and Tony’s Bar or at the door.
