The ball must go into the net. Every football fan in Europe confirms that, only the question for which team you cheer, that lets the emotions rise, especially when you are in between a bunch of enthusiastic fans, because there the atmosphere explodes.

Fan Arena along the Vienna Ring Road

No wonder, then, that the fabulous Fan Arena on the Ring road in Vienna will again be a hotspot during the European Championship 2016 – in the truest sense of the word. On the Rathausplatz, the City of Vienna offers a special kind of fan experience: every day, from 10 June to 10 July 2016 when the hearts of football fans, who support their national squad, beats, we start at 11 the largest public viewing of the city, accompanied by sporting and musical supporting programs as well as culinary offers – and framed by the unique flair of the Vienna Ring Road.

Even larger LED screen in front of the town hall

By the way, during the EC 2008, when Austria was the host nation together with Switzerland, the fan zone in Vienna stretched from Rathausplatz over the Ring Road to Heldenplatz. The largest screen measured more than 70 square meters. This year, the fans can look forward to a 100 square meter LED screen – we promise that you can even see the sweat drops of the football players dripping on the lawn.

We can promise: the sporting event of the year heats the minds, because joy and grief are so close together, as hardly any other. It is quite wonderful that a view over the magnificent Vienna Ring gives a little relaxation. We would like to wish all Viennese people and of course also all tourists an exciting European Championship 2016!
