The Fanzone will once again be opening its doors to those who wish to watch the Three Lions in World Cup action.

Three-thousand fans packed into the zone on Saturday to enjoy England beating Sweden 2-0.

Now bosses at Ipswich Town believe that there could be even more fans present as England take on Croatia.

There had been some doubt over whether the club would be able to host a further viewing as a private event was already due to be held there.

Insurance company AXA had been due to hold its own event in the Fanzone on Wednesday but was happy to move its event when it became clear that it could clash with a momentous game for the national team.

The ground will be open from 4.30pm for fans, with the club promising more bars and eateries to ensure that all fans enjoy the game.
