Are you ready to swap your sofa for your local to cheer on England in the Euros?

If so, you'll be happy to know that plenty of pubs and bars across Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and the surrounding villages are planning to show the games.

Many venues have been preparing outdoor areas after an influx of bookings and are expected to be at capacity during the competition although numbers will be limited due to coronavirus restrictions.

England's first two games will be played under current regulations, with their third and final group game, against the Czech Republic on June 22, happening the day after the rules could change, allowing more people into the pubs.

Here is a list of venues around the borough showing the matches:
