THE EUROS are just around the corner and football fans are gearing up for the start of the long-awaited tournament.

Kicking off on June 11, the competition is being held across 12 cities in Europe, with many of the games taking place in stadia across Britain.

This includes the final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, July 11.

Plenty of people in Brighton will be desperate to experience live sport again, sharing the highs and the lows of the tournament in the company of equally passionate fans.

Gareth Southgate's Three Lions will be hoping to go at least one better than they did at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, with the impressive run to the semi-finals sparking extraordinary celebrations across the country.

In Brighton, thousands of fans watched England triumph against Sweden to make it to the World Cup last four.

Chants of “it’s coming home” soundtracked the summer and scenes of celebratory pints being thrown high into the air became commonplace.

Sadly, the coronavirus pandemic means we are unlikely to see scenes quite like those we saw three years ago repeated this summer.

Face coverings must be worn inside all pubs when not at a table and there's no ordering from a bar, only table service as social distancing remains in place.

Not many of us will be lucky enough to get tickets to attend this summer's games in person and restrictions on the number of supporters at the games means tickets will be even harder to come by.

But there is still plenty of options of where to watch the games in Brighton if you're searching for a party atmosphere.

Here are some of the places where you can watch the games in Brighton and Hove:

The Blind Busker, Church Road, Hove

The popular pub is inviting customers to watch every minute of the Euros live on its indoor and outdoor screens.

Staff are recommending people book a table well in advance as spaces are quickly being booked.
