What Are These Events About?

4TheFans on the pier is a brand-new and exciting sports-viewing concept in the UK.

We’ll be screening Football, Rugby, Formula 1 and Tennis, live and direct at a purpose built socially distanced fan village on the world famous Brighton Pier.

4theFans Big Screen Sport on the Pier puts you at the heart of the action by bringing you the big event atmosphere we all love and enjoy,  showing live games and events on a huge screen, combined with all the thrills of the funfair, with drinks and food packages included in the ticket price.

Simply arrive at the pier, come along to our exclusive venue, relax on a deckchair and watch our live stream of the event – order drinks and food to your chair.

We kick off on September 8th with the long-awaited return of international football with England vs Denmark, followed closely by Formula One and the Italian Grand Prix, before we then move onto other sports such as the Premier League, the French Open, and the grand finale of the 6 Nations.

The stage we will be using for all of our screenings is situated upon the world famous Brighton Pier.  4theFans will be fully taking over Horatio’s Bar, ensuring we are central to all the action, funfair, and food outlets.

How Does It Work?

We offer a unique experience that is built around the current government guidelines and the safety of the fans.

We provide all the essentials, deckchairs, ambiance, full waiter service, and monster sound system and screen, meaning you can sit back and relax in a safe and secure environment with all your family and friends.

Tickets are limited to allow for ample spacing and socially-distanced movement when using the toilets, collecting food and drink, or in case of emergency.

We ask all fans to enjoy the matches responsibly, and remain courteous to our staff and fellow fans alike.

The screen we use is large, ensuring a great views for all fans.  Coupled with that we have a monster sound system, ensuring you will hear and feel all the action as it is played out.

Our event space will be organised to allow clear and safe usage of on-site toilet facilities.

Staff will be on hand to ensure your safety throughout the site, in-line with the current government social distancing guidelines.

We may have to adapt our infrastructure to meet current guidelines, so it is important that you take note of the instructions, and listen carefully to any announcements from event staff.

There will be an exciting array of food and drink on sale at our screenings, all provided by our full waiter and waitress service.  Whether its fish and chips, pizza, or a burger, we have it covered.

All of our tickets offer excellent value and come with either a burger/pizza, and a glass of wine or a beer.

Food and drinks vouchers will be given out to customers on arrival at the venue, and can be redeemed from when doors open.

Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions, you cannot bring you own food and drinks onto our venue. We have a full range of food and drink at affordable prices, just like you would expect at your local multiplex.

Random safety searches will be undertaken on customers entering our venue to ensure compliance with this regulation.

Our bars will be serving a range of non-alcoholic beers and soft drinks.
