The RDS in Dublin to host drive-in screening of the Merseyside derby

Everton and Liverpool go head-to-head at Goodison Park on Sunday.

THE RDS IN Dublin will host a drive-in screening of the Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool on Sunday 21 June.

With the Premier League resuming this week, there is already major excitement about the latest Merseyside clash at Goodison Park on Sunday evening (kick-off 7pm), and the RDS will host Liverpool and Everton fans for a drive-in football experience.

A huge 12 metre x 5 metre LED screen will allow up to 800 people to watch the match from their cars.

A spokesperson for Sky Sports stressed that the event will be family-friendly screening.

“With no spectators at the game, watching the match is going to be a different experience no matter what way you look at it but we’re embracing a unique alternative with this exclusive outdoor big screen event,” said Sky’s Sharon McHugh.

“It’s the perfect way for fans to watch the action from the comfort and safety of their own car. 

“The idea behind the screening is to give families an alternative and safe way to watch the match on a big screen. It’s perfect and so timely with Liverpool v Everton falling on Father’s Day.”

Event organisers say there is a maximum capacity of 200 cars, with a maximum of four people in each car.

Attendees are free to bring their own food and drink, although alcohol is strictly prohibited.

Sky Sports’ TV commentary of the game will be transmitted onto car radios.
