Lincoln Castle World Cup big screen awaits the whistle

Waiting for the green light.

A special fan zone complete with giant screen could be brought to Lincoln for the live World Cup Semi-Final this week.

Organisers have been ramping up support through a registration page online following England’s 2-0 win at the weekend.

If given the go-ahead, the fan zone would be held at Lincoln Castle from 5pm on Wednesday, July 11, when England face Croatia.

It’s expected an announcement whether the event can go ahead will be made on Tuesday afternoon.

Awaiting the go-ahead.

Should they succeed they’ll have the chance to play France or Belgium in the World Cup final.

Organisers at Major Label said in a statement: “Whilst we can’t yet confirm this event is taking place, the organisers are working hard to bring the dream to life.

“Public Safety is paramount and we are working in co-operation with the relevant authorities to enable this event to take place.

“We aim to release a further statement by Tuesday PM. Thank you so much for your patience!”
