The next France World Cup match on a giant screen in front of Hôtel de Ville, Monday 30th June 2014 at 6pm

Sport (en)

The ‘Blues’ are through to the round of sixteen in the World Cup. Cue general hysteria and screens in every café and bar. None of those can compete with what the Paris city council has organised though.

A giant screen will soon be placed on the square in front of Hôtel de Ville (here) and at 6pm on Monday 30th June 2014, they’ll be showing the France match. Perhaps you’ll get carried away by the ambiance yourself?

As it’s only a 15-minute walk from our hotels, why not pop down and experience what is sure to be a pretty moment. 🙂

Enjoy the match!
