What are these events about?

Drive-in football is a brand-new and exciting sports-viewing concept in the UK.
We’ll be screening Premier League and Champions League matches, live and direct at our drive-in cinemas across England.

Drive-in football puts you at the heart of the action by bringing you the big game atmosphere we all love and enjoy and showing live games the largest mobile screens in the UK.

Simply park up, tune in to the FM audio commentary and watch our live stream of the match – all from the safety of your vehicle.
We’re kicking off with the long-awaited return of the Premier League.
In the second half of the summer, we’ll be turning our attention to the culmination of the Champions League.
Our first events are scheduled for London and Manchester.
If a location near you isn’t listed on the ticket page, it means we’ve yet to confirm it as a screening site.

We want to ensure the venues we are using are suitably accessible and meet the high standards we expect for our events to run safely.

We are in discussions with a number of excellent outdoor venues throughout the UK and will announce the final list soon. Check out our events page for the latest developments.

How does it work?

We offer a unique drive-in cinema experience that is build around the current government guidelines and the safety of the fans.

We advise all guests to stay in their vehicles to enjoy the full experience as intended. Food and drinks can be ordered from within your vehicle and will be delivered to your car.

There will be ample spacing between each parking spot to allow safe, socially-distanced movement outside vehicles when using the toilets, or in case of emergency.

We ask all fans to enjoy the matches responsibly at our family-friendly events.
Our screens are some of the largest in the country, ensuring great views for all fans.

You will be given an FM frequency on arrival so you can tune your car radio to broadcast direct commentary from the match.

You could also bring along a wireless FM radio.

Our fans can purchase pitch-side experience tickets – allocating your vehicle to the front two rows.
Our event space will be organised to allow clear and safe usage of on-site toilet facilities.

Our event marshals will ensure your safety throughout the site, in-line with the current government social distancing guidelines.

Accessible toilets will be provided separate to the main facilities, to allow for quick and easy access in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
We’ll be bringing an exciting array of street food vendors and bars to our events.

All orders will be made from your vehicle. There will be no direct contact with the vendors or event staff.

Your order will be delivered to your car and left outside the vehicle for safe, contact-free collection.

Designated drivers will have an array of non-alcoholic beers and soft drinks to choose from. Alcohol will be available to passengers who can provide proof of age.

We are here ‘4thefans’, so rest assured that we won’t be charging extortionate venue prices for our food and drinks – prices will be similar to your local pub or street food stall.

In the interest of staff safety, we kindly ask all our attendees to please take rubbish home.
Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions, you cannot bring you own food and drinks onto our site. We have a full range of licensed food and drink suppliers at affordable prices, just like you would expect at your local multiplex. Random safety searches will be undertaken on vehicles entering our site to ensure compliance with this regulation.
Our bars will be serving a range of non-alcoholic beers and soft drinks.
