The FanZones will show live coverage of the Olympic Games at selected times between 1pm and 10pm between 5-22 August – depending on local FanZone opening times – offering the chance to share memorable and historic sporting moments among fellow fans of Team GB. The triathlon takes place August 18-20
Team GB gymnast Beth Tweddle, said: “Team GB fans are so passionate and it was fantastic in 2012 to get everyone together at locations across the country. There is something very special about everyone coming together to support Team GB. I’d encourage fans around the UK to visit a FanZone during the Olympic Games and show the athletes in Rio that they are behind them.
“It is great to see the cities backing Team GB ahead of another exciting Olympic Games, and they’d love as many fans as possible to visit.”
Further cities may be confirmed in the run-up to the Olympic Games as Team GB aims for regional coverage across the United Kingdom.
