While the men's national team plays three group matches in the Park at Østerbro, there will be an opportunity for the rest of the city to participate in the celebration of the first European Championship at home ever.
The four battles will be the catalyst for creating the ultimate national folk festival. During the European Championship final, you are welcome to look past Ofelia Plads, where Danes and football fans can experience many different activities during the day. Look forward to a program packed with entertainment, big screen viewing and free games.
During the tournament's 31 days, Ofelia Plads will be transformed into an urban space in the city with food stalls, bars and daily activities, while the area at Øksnehallen shows all European Championship matches on the big screen. Large screens of the European Championship matches will also be shown at Ofelia Plads.
The program for Ofelia Plads and Øksnehallen is planned in accordance with current guidelines that apply to major outdoor activities. Therefore, the capacity of the two sites will also be less than originally planned with about 3000 people at Ofelia Square: 500–1000 people at big screen screenings and up to 1200 people in Øksnehallen. In addition, Ofelia Plads will be included in a test schedule for future settlement of major events.
The current restrictions mean that it is not possible to make a big screen on Rådhustorget and other fan events in the city, which were otherwise planned.
