Jim King, chief executive of European Festivals at AEG Presents, said: “What an unbelievable moment for us all to share our generation’s greatest sporting moment at this special live screening in Victoria Park. We’re so happy for the Lionesses, women’s sport, and all sporting fans throughout the country. This is it! A World Cup final!  Come on Lionesses! Come on England!”

“The Lionesses’ run to the final - and hopefully to bring the World Cup home - will deliver a further massive boost to the popularity of women’s football in this country and inspire more girls and women to get involved in sport.

“The atmosphere for the screening on Sunday will be electric and I can’t wait to see Londoners come together at Victoria Park and at the many fantastic venues, bars and restaurants across London showing the final to cheer the team on to glory. Come on England!”

Lutfur Rahman, mayor of Tower Hamlets, said: “The Lionesses are an amazing squad of incredible talented players who are an inspiration to us all. I hope that their success inspires and encourages women and girls not just in Tower Hamlets but across our nation, to participate in sports and physical activity.

“We look forward to welcoming visitors to our award-winning Victoria Park to cheer the Lionesses on.”
