Manchester Grant Giant Screens For UEFA Cup Final
Manchester City Council have buckled under pressure from ticket-less Glasgow Rangers fans and agreed to install giant screens in Albert Square and Piccadilly Gardens for the UEFA Cup Final.
The game against Zenit St Petersburg takes place on May 14, and more than 100,000 Rangers fans are expected to converge on the city.
Talking about the giant screen installation, Councillor Pat Karney spoke on behalf of Manchester City Council...
'In the light of Rangers qualifying for the final and the massive reported demand from fans for bigger and better provision, we've arranged for big outdoor screens for fans to watch the match.'
'Manchester is looking forward to welcoming fans from Rangers FC and from FC Zenit St Petersburg for a day to remember on 14 May.'
'Our city is well used to friendly invasions of many thousands of visitors for major events like the UEFA Cup final.'
'I'm confident that Manchester will give a very warm welcome to fans from Rangers and from Zenit and that all fans will have a fabulous day.'
The council said that fan zones with entertainment and access to food and drink throughout the day would be available for both sets of supporters.
