Just as for your favourite players, physical and mental preparation is required for such an event, and it starts with the following question: where do I go to watch the 2018 Football World Cup matches with friends?
To help you in your quest for the perfect setting, here is a selection of the best spots to meet with friends so you don’t miss a thing in the 2018 World Cup in Cannes.
World Cup Final on a giant screen at the Forville Market
Promises are made to be kept! As the French team is qualified for the FIFA World Cup Final after their victory against Belgium, the city of Cannes will set up a secure fan zone in the Forville Market on Sunday, 5pm.
On Tuesday, a fan zone was already set up in the Forville Market for the France v. Belgium match, and welcomed 1.400 supporters in a festive and friendly atmosphere.
True to its heritage, the Forville Market was and will always be a popular gathering place in Cannes.
Within the limit of the number of places available, limited to 1.400 participants. Any exit is final & bags will be checked before the entrance.
