Fans without tickets for the early Cricket World Cup matches at Trent Bridge needn’t miss out on the electric atmosphere as Nottingham plays host to the country’s biggest fanzone.

What’s more, they can avoid the hassle of finding a parking space or negotiating the traffic by taking the tram to the heart of the cricket-themed celebrations in Old Market Square.

In the fanzone they can watch live TV broadcasts of matches on a big screen and the family-friendly event also offers a host of cricket activities plus food, music and entertainment from around the world.

Stephanie Moss-Pearce, NET Marketing Manager, said: “The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup is set to come to life at the fanzone in Old Market Square, where enthusiasts can celebrate their love of the game in a relaxed and friendly environment.

“At a time when the city is set to welcome a huge influx of visitors from around the world, taking the tram to the fanzone offers hassle-free way to join in the fun – even if they aren’t lucky enough to secure a ticket for the sell at matches at Trent Bridge.”

Nottingham’s fanzone is open from Thursday, May 30 – when England play current champions South Africa in the opening game at The Oval – until Sunday, June 2.

It will also be showing the Trent Bridge between West Indies and Pakistan on Friday, May 31.
