England vs Ukraine - Where to watch in UK ? BBC or ITV - Let's Go Hangout

The Three Lions secured their place in the tournament last eight with a famous victory over Germany in the last 16. The victory, courtesy of second-half goals from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane, was their first over their old rivals in a knockout game for 55 years and their first in any competitive game against them for nearly two decades.

Gareth Southgate's side are the only remaining team in the competition yet to concede a goal having topped Group D thanks to 1-0 wins over Croatia and Czech Republic and a goalless draw with Scotland.

Now they face Ukraine, who qualified for the knockout phase as one of the four best third-placed teams behind the Netherlands and Austria in Group C. Andriy Shevchenko's side had Sweden to thank for beating Poland in their final group game to ensure that, only to then go on to knock them out in the last-16. The match in Glasgow looked destined to go to penalties only for substitute Artem Dovbyk to head home to win it with almost the last action of the game in extra-time.

The two now meet at the Stadio Olimpico in the Italian capital, a trip that represents England's first travel of the tournament having played all four of their games so far on home soil at Wembley Stadium.

Where to watch

England's quarter-final clash with Ukraine kicks off at 8.00pm (UK time) on Saturday 2 July at the Stadio Olimpico. All fixtures in Euro 2020 are being broadcast live and free on the BBC and ITV, with the quarter-final on BBC One – the TV coverage starts at 7.00pm.

The easing of coronavirus restrictions means outdoor and indoor venues are back open and ready for business and there’s no better place to get in on the kind of buzz that only an England game could generate, than your local big screen venue.

Ahead of the quarter-final game against Ukraine on Saturday, 3 July, which will be kicking off at 8pm, we’ve picked out the best pubs and venues to support the team in the UK’s biggest cities. While tickets at many of the dedicated fan zones and large screens sold out weeks in advance, here are some of the venues still available for booking or taking walk-ins.

Showcase cinemas, nationwide

After a quiet year for the cinema industry, due to the pandemic forcing them shut, Showcase is back open. With cinemas across the country, including Liverpool, Nottingham, Leeds, Leicester and London, the company is using its screens to show England games for free.

An added bonus is that all the screens are indoor, which is particularly convenient given the UK’s unpredictable weather. Tickets are still available at many locations, including its east London-based Newham venue.

Brewdog, nationwide

In celebration of football’s return, Brewdog pubs are turning themselves into fan zones. The chain has venues up and down the country, with more than 20 in London alone. While booking to watch the match is required, many locations still have availability. Visit its website to see which fan zones are still available to book.

Pop Brixton, London

This large outdoor dining and drinking south-London based venue will be showing the game on a mega screen measuring almost 4 metres wide. Opened in 2015, Pop Brixton is home to a range of small, independent businesses serving fresh food from a variety of cuisines. Although it has been taking pre-bookings, the venue has reserved walk-in spots for every match.

The Happenstance, London

A short walk away from St Paul’s cathedral, the Happenstance will be showing the match on multiple big screens both inside and on its huge terrace outdoors. Promising a “sophisticated” spot for the match, the venue has designed a selection of sharing boards and fully loaded burgers for a “summer of sport”. Bookings for Saturday’s match are still available on its website.

Truman’s Social Club, London

East London’s Truman’s Social Club will be screening the match on both of its big screens. Describing itself as a “beer hall”, it has more than 20 beers on tap to get you through the game. Bookings for Saturday have now closed, but limited walk-in tables will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.
