Nice fanzone expanded for final

Tonight at 9pm, all eyes will be on the French national football team as they take on Portugal in the UEFA Euro 2016 final. Ahead of the highly anticipated event, the city of Nice has announced that it will extend the city centre fan zone to accomodate swelling crowds.

With as many as 13,000 people expected to head to Nice's fan zone on the Promenade de Paillon this evening, the city of Nice has decided to increase the floor space and erect a third big screen, which will televise the live game. 

Access to the fan zone will begin at 7pm - two hours before the final kick off of the tournament - but with such high numbers and limited space despite the expansion, it is recommended that fans head there earlier in the day to ensure they're at the front of the queue when the barriers open. 

The UEFA Euro 2016 final is taking place at the Stade de France in Paris.
