SINGAPORE - Visitors to Changi Airport will be able to catch 2018 Fifa World Cup matches live when the first game kicks off on June 14.
A 7m by 4m high-definition LED screen has been set up at Terminal 3, near the Skytrain station to Terminal 1, where 33 key matches will be screened, Changi Airport Group (CAG) said in a statement on Friday (June 8).
CAG said that the area will be lined with soft carpet, football-shaped inflatable seats and cosy lounge chairs.
This is the first time that the Fifa World Cup matches will be screened live in the public area of the airport. In past events, football fans could only catch the matches while they are in transit.
Visitors can take their guess at the winning team for each match to stand a chance to win Changi Gift Cards worth up to $300.
At the finals, $1,000 Changi gift cards will be up for grabs.
Travellers flying through Changi Airport can catch the live matches at television clusters in World is Flat (Terminal 1), Experience Zone (Terminal 2), Pret a Manger (Terminal 3) and Herman Miller (Terminal 4), CAG said.
These areas have been given a "football stadium" makeover, while the event will also feature activities such as face painting and caricature art.
Admission to all live screenings at Changi Airport is free.
Meanwhile, live broadcasts of the tournament in Russia will also be screened at 55 community clubs across Singapore.
The People's Association announced on Tuesday that football fans will be able to watch all 64 matches of the football championship for free.
