and live on Freeview channel 276
England held their nerve to win a penalty shoot-out against Nigeria in the Last-16 of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The match finished 0-0 after extra time and Chloe Kelly scored the clinical spot kick to book a quarter final place.
The date and opposition for the quarter final clash has now been confirmed. Columbia defeated Jamaica 1-0 and set up their clash with England.
The fixture will kick off at 11.30am UK time on Saturday August 12. The winners of this quarter final will face either France or Australia in the semi-finals.
Many of the matches at the tournament have been tricky to follow given the time difference to the host nations of Australia and New Zealand. Yet this late morning match for the UK should be easier to follow- and many fans will be looking to watch the game out and about in Manchester.
Some of Manchester's eateries and drinking establishments have got events planned for people to come and enjoy food and drink whilst watching the football. One of these is The Oast House, which has advertised a ‘first come, first served’ event on social media.
The pub will not take bookings but will be open from 11am. The match will be shown on a big screen in the garden and the kitchen will be open for food from 12pm.
Port Street Beer House
Port Street Beer House near Ancoats and the Northern Quarter is another Manchester City Centre pub which is advertising that it will be showing the game live. The bar will be open from noon but you can get in for free in time for kick off.
A social media event post reads: “Sweden may be massive fans of our content (thanks for the support pals), but it is Lionesses who we’ll be showing this Saturday at 11.30am as they reach the World Cup quarter finals. Doors open from 11am, but our licence means you’ll need to wait until midday before you can grab yourself a pint. You can wait for that, right? Free in, as god intended. See you then.”
The Crafty Pig
The central pub has put on events for each of England’s games so far at the World Cup- and the quarter final is no different. The pub will be open for the match- and you’ll even be able to get yourself a special bottomless brunch.
The Lioness Bottomless Brunch is available for £28 per person. You can get booked up by visiting The Crafty Pig website.
Fans can watch the match through the drama of the big screen. Tickets to watch the game at the cinema are £7.99 and can be purchased through the Vue website.
