Pubs Across England Already Fully Booked For Sunday's Euro Final


Pubs Across England Already Fully Booked For Sunday's Euro Final

Unless you've been living in a cave for the past few days, you'll know that England are set to play in the final of Euro 2020 this Sunday - the team's first appearance in a major men's tournament final in 55 years. And we all know what happened last time...

However, it's not all good news, especially for fans hoping to watch the game in the comfort of the boozer - it seems many pubs across England are already fully booked at 8pm this Sunday.

Yep, if social media is any gauge, it looks like football fans nationwide are struggling to book a place to watch England take on Italy:


Still, those who are lucky enough to find a seat in their local can rest assured that they needn't worry about being booted out if it goes to extra time - or, indeed, the dreaded penalties.

Boris Johnson recently announced pubs in England would be able to stay open until 11.15pm on Sunday to ensure no pub-goers would miss any of the game.

Usually, pubs have to close at 10.30pm on a Sunday, but an emergency tweak of the law will be made so they can show all of the match if it goes beyond the standard 90 minutes.

Many England fans are also hoping for an emergency Bank Holiday should England win the Euro 2020 on Sunday.

According to The Sun, officials have been drawing up proposals for a national day off so fans can celebrate England's victory - if they win.

When asked about the possibility of an official extra day off for the country, Prime Minister Boris Johnson neither confirmed nor denied the rumour, saying: "I think that would be tempting fate.

"Let's see what happens."

However, the 57-year-old PM has reportedly ruled out the possibility of a surprise bank holiday on Monday because it would be too close to the final for bosses to grant at the last minute.

The idea came after Lee Jones set up a petition on Thursday asking the Prime Minister to grant a last-minute Bank Holiday in the event of the Three Lions beating Italy at Wembley on Sunday night.
