As part of the arrangements for this year's World Cup, all 12 venues will be organising an official 'fan park' in their city, where fans can gather, party and watch the games on giant screens.
Fan Fest on the Volksfestplatz
The 'Fan Fest' in Nuremberg will take place within sight of the Franken-Stadion on the fairground site known as 'Volksfestplatz' alongside the gargantuan Kongresshalle.

The Fest will run for the duration of the tournament with a big screen showing all of the games (except those on at the same time as others).
Fun and games
In addition to the live screenings, fans will also be provided with a wide range of entertainment, fun and games. There will be five-a-side football pitches and opportunities to measure how fast you can kick the ball and to test how accurately you can shoot. There will also be a play area for kids and area for female fans to get a massage or sit in deck-chairs with a cocktail!
The 'Fan Fest' will also feature an 'information village' with fan embassies and stands providing information about the city.
Beer village and wine festival
The range of facilities is completed by a 'Franconian Beer village' and a 'Wine Festival' section, plus a range of catering with an international flair.
The Fest on the Volksfestplatz will run every day from 9th June until 9th July. Admission will be free.
