If you’re looking for somewhere to watch the Women’s World Cup, here’s a list of five venues in the Paris area screening the matches.
FIFA Fan Experience Village
Don’t call it a fan zone, it’s a “village”. Located at Les Halles in the heart of Paris, the FIFA Fan Experience Village (Village FIFA Fan Expérience) will broadcast World Cup matches on two giant screens throughout the month-long competition. An estimated 10,000 people are expected at the venue, which will also host a number of family-friendly activities and events.

Like last year for the Men’s World Cup, the eastern Paris suburb of Noisy-Le-Grand will again host a fan zone. All of Les Bleues matches (as well as the final 16, quarter, semi and championship games) will be shown on a giant 20-square-metre screen set up on the grounds of the local town hall.
