Summer of Sport on Screen on the Green

Tomorrow, Thursday 27 June, the city of Newcastle is being encouraged to get behind the Lionesses and cheer on the England Women’s football team as they take on Norway in the Fifa Women’s World Cup Quarter Final.   The match will be screened from 7.30pm – 10pm on NE1 Ltd’s big open-air screen at Old Eldon Square.


The screening is part of NE1’s Screen on the Green Summer of Sport, which will see a packed programme of international sporting events broadcast at Old Eldon Square, as part of NE1’s Screen on the Green Summer Schedule.


This summer, as well as the much- loved movies, NE1 is proud to present Screen on the Green’s Summer of Sport, a month long programme of international sporting action.  All the best tennis action from Wimbledon, the knockout rounds of the Women's Football World Cup, two live games from the Cricket World Cup, action from Formula One’s British Grand Prix, stages of the world-renowned cycling Tour de France, and the Semi-Finals and Final of the Netball World Cup will all be shown on the big screen in the heart of the city for everyone to enjoy.


As well as action on screen, NE1 will be bringing the sport to life with a series of sporting activities linked to the on screen championships.  For instance during the Netball world cup, NE1 Ltd will be teaming up with England Netball who will attend the Screen on the Green netball screenings on 20 and 21 July bringing with them netball balls and hoops.  They will be offering the public the chance to ‘have a go’ and to try their hand at netball, which is the fastest growing female participation sport in the UK.
