Some place called Tom Halls Arena on Brunswick Street. Apparently it's next to Tom Halls Tavern. Still think it could be fake but possibly just an overpriced, poorly organised, shit show! £28 to watch the match on a screen! They have no history of organised events that they've put forward to show this is legit and they can pull it off. They originally put the date on as June 26!

Yeah, it is. Never been though. Tom Halls' Facebook are plugging this event now so they must be part of the organisation.

Watched a game there once, there are worse places to be sure, but £28?? What you getting for that?

I have no idea - was just saying that if Tom Halls are involved it is likely to be a legit event.

Bit of a long shot but not sure where else to ask. I am in Benalmadena near Malaga for the final...has anyone been and know of any good spots where I can watch, preferably where some other Reds might be?

Was there with the wife and little ones a couple of years ago, so didn't do the bars. There was a square heading out of Benalmadena towards Torremolinos, that had some Sports Bars/Irish Bars in it, I remember a lot of pissed up Scots wandering about that area. If you get a taxi from Malaga airport to where you are staying, they drive past Torremolinos and then down the main road into Benalmadena, you go right past this square, so keep an eye out when you are going that way and you should be able to clock the place.

We stayed opposite the castilio del bil bil on the front, missus watched her lot on afternoon in a local bar/restaurant that had the footy on, so you won't struggle to find a place to watch. Hopefully the locals will be Madrid haters so you'll be well in.

I was in Tom Halls last saturday and asked them about the Champions League.
The guy I spoke to said there was no charge for entry but expected it to be rammed.
He never mentioned anything about a ticketed event.

Their facebook page is advertising this event and also saying £5 on the door of the actual pub for the game in there.

2 tickets booked in the Anfield Rd Lower Blk 127 for me and my missus.

Sleeping over at a good mates place a mile from the ground on Friday Saturday night (he’s not a footy fan)

I’ve been toying with how to watch this game.

After being at the 2005 final in person I wanted to get as “near as possible” to this one. The feeling of being surrounded by thousands of fellow reds is the only option.  The thought of being in a bar with the strong possibility of rival fans being in there taking the piss was a non-starter for this.  And then I had a nightmare thought that some rivals might even get into Anfield for the screening ... but the way they’ve done it with you having to be an LFC member should make sure it’s only Liverpool fans in Anfield on the night.

And all being well we’ll be waking up in Liverpool on the Sunday with an open top bus parade to look forward to!!!

Can anyone who went to the Roma screening comment on the views please?

I only saw a picture earlier in this thread and the screens didn't look too big, but perhaps it just appeared that way...

We could definitely sell it out. The views of the screen just wouldn't be good enough from the upper main and upper KD stand. Hence why they've been left empty.

The screens and feed is provided and sponsored by BT sport (all the advertising hordings showed BT adverts only). Means they can show the nice reaction shots from Anfield on the TV

I was at the Roma game and the views were great as well as sound.

The only major issue (and will be even worse with a full stadium) is that they are in no way prepared to serve drinks and food properly.

Yeah main problems is that there was obviously a massive rise in demand than usual for beer cos you can take to your seat, also they are still pouring cans into plastic cups instead of all using the fast bottom filling draught beer that they have in some parts of the stadium. Oh and the two girls serving my line were really nice but slow as fuck!

Sounds great Bar the slow Bar  ;D

Hopefully with a larger crowd they have learnt from the last screening and improve that part.

Can you bring your own drink into the ground (stupid question?) and are the screenings in 4K?

Eeeeeeeeew!!!  That's taking things a bit far.  Can he not have a less gruesome mask like that fella with nails all over his head in that film called Hellraiser (or something)?  The oil is acceptable.
