There’s a summer of sports ahead, with Wimbledon, Euro football and the Paris Olympics — and away from watching at home or in the pub, several large outdoor screens are set up across London.

As you might expect, seats tend to get grabbed fast for the big matches, but you’ll often be able to sit on the floor or grass, so bring a rug.

The ones I have found so far are below. If I’ve missed any, add them to the comments at the bottom of this page. Thanks.


Battersea

Summer sports finals will be broadcast on the big screen at the Battersea Park Bowling Green on 13th and 14th July.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
