More information 

The Team GB FanZones are a network of big screens and event spaces across the UK in city centre locations. During the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, these FanZones will become fantastic destinations to watch Team GB, whilst participating in sporting activity run by the National Governing Bodies of the Olympic sports. The FanZones are free to enter and will be great venues to soak up the excitement of the Games and share in memorable and historic moments from what promises to be another exciting Olympic Games. 

There will also be the opportunity to take part in some Olympic sports for free (run by the National Governing Bodies of the Olympic Sports), including canoeing, shooting, equestrian, and table tennis. 

(Please note, that due to Rio being four hours behind, the opening and closing ceremonies will not be shown on the Big Screen).
