Drive-In matches help fire football’s flames
Drive-in gigs and movies are set to be a popular summer phenomenon in Ireland, as we highlighted recently in Now, Near, Next. This trend is now extending to the domain of televised sport with news this week that the RDS is to host a drive-in Premier League match this Sunday.
A 12-metre x 5 metre LED screen will allow up to 800 people to watch the Everton v Liverpool derby match from a maximum of 200 cars. Commentary from Sky Sports can be accessed via car radios. The shape of things to come surely, with the Premier League and major European competitions set to be concluded across the summer. Sport, whether witnessing live at stadia or via TV, is for so many a shared experience that they long to be part of again and initiatives like this are a welcome opportunity for fans to be part of a collective again, in a safe environment.
The Ballsbridge venue is extensively served with high quality digital and classic roadside OOH formats and events such as these will drive traffic in these areas at traditionally less busy weekend and night times.
Similar events are also taking place in Dundalk for the Spurs v Man Utd game on Friday and the Merseyside Derby on Sunday.
