2018 FIFA World Cup: a giant screen on the Champ-de-Mars to follow the final

Mairie de Paris said it and did it! This Sunday July 15, from 5 p.m., soccer fans can follow the very expected 2018 FIFA World Cup final and support France or its opponents at the foot of the Eiffel Tower thanks to a giant screen set up on the Champ-de-Mars!

France keeps dreaming while being awake! After making it to the last 16, then quarter-finals and finally the incredible and sensational semi-finals facing off Belgians (victory 1-0), France reaches the big final of this 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The event will take place on Sunday July 15, 2018 from 5 p.m. live from the Loujniki stadium in Moscow, Russia.

Let’s wait to find out which team will play against France to try and win the holy Graal. England, led by Harry Kane or Croatia led by its captain Luka Modrić? We’ll know Wednesday July 11 evening.

But, what’s sure is that Mairie de Paris will keep a promise. After setting up a giant screen in front of the city hall on Tuesday July 10, allowing 20,000 supporters to follow the France-Belgium semi-finals, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo confirmed a giant screen will be set up on the Champ-de-Mars this time, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, to watch this final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup that should be filled with emotions!

Mairie de Paris twitter reads: ‘’On est en finaaale ! On est en finaaaale ! Bravo les bleus ! Rendez-vous dimanche, nous vous suivrons aux pieds de la Tour Eiffel !’’ [We made it to the final! We made it to the final! Well done France! Meet on Sunday, we’ll support you from the Eiffel Tower]

Anne Hidalgo also confirmed it on Tuesday evening, right after the French team won facing Belgians.

I expect everyone to support the French team, to stand behind France and we’ll be on the Champ-de-Mars, where we can welcome even more people”.

Please note that for the semi-finals in front of the City Hall, impressive security measures had been set up. Organization and broadcasting arrangements planned for this Sunday facing the Eiffel Tower have not yet been specified.

Let’s recall that the day before, July 14, is Bastille Day, the Champ-de-Mars will be the theater of a symphonic concert as well as the traditional fireworks!
