Groningen’s Football Fever Faces New Rules: Will The Excitement Persist?

The European championship starts today. In Groningen there is one big question this summer: will there be a real football fever coming up in the city? Not only will there be no public viewing in Groningen, the local government also recently announced new rules and measures for bar owners to show the games. Screens can only have a size of maximum 55 inches, there is a limit for the volume of TVs, and further – the screens are not allowed to be placed in a way that people can watch them from outside the terraces…

Our reporters Alina Stehle and Henrike Laing spoke with the pub and café owners and citizens of Groningen about their reactions to the new measures and their enthusiasm for the tournament.
