Kickov Time! World Cup Festival Heads to Abbeydale Picture House
Celebrating the 2018 World Cup in style, Kickov will be providing a festival atmosphere for the footy at Abbeydale Picture House next month – featuring live music, stand-up comedy, street food, craft beer, an outdoor terrace, footy-oke, beer pong, FIFA and table football tournaments!
Oh, and that’s not to mention the games themselves being shown in Ultra HD cinema quality on the largest screen in the city.
Drinks-wise, a “mates-rates” bar will be serving up a selection of craft ales alongside Molotov cocktails and Moscow Mules. Grub comes from currywurst and hotdog specialists Get Wurst, while South Yorkshire’s finest gourmet pie merchants Pie Eyed bring the pastry.
Taking place from June 14th – July 15th, Kickov opens its doors with the opening game of the World Cup, on June 14th with a special free entry opening party as the hosts Russia play Saudi Arabia. A Father’s Day special on June 17th should prove popular with a football memorabilia market, three world cup matches and samba bands. All the matchdays and fixtures are listed at www.kickov.com.
Al Daw, Kickov creator, told Exposed: “This is going to be a festival of football in every sense – a unique blend of music, games, drinks, food, fun & a bit of sun! Seeing the game on the spectacular big screen at the Abbeydale Picturehouse alongside what we have planned will be unforgettable, it’s going to be a cracking atmosphere. We’re trying to get fans of each and every team down to the cinema to see a game. It’s going to an inclusive atmosphere that celebrates the beautiful game in all its glory,we’re even organising a world cup #kitgoals competition for the best dressed fan each matchday!”
The opening weekend is free entry, and after that tickets are £5 (which includes a free drink). Limited tickets will be available on the door. Head to www.kickov.com for more information.
