Nicosia’s rugby fans can enjoy all the fun of this weekend’s World Cup semi-finals on the big screen at the French Cultural Centre, which will be showing the two big matches on giant TVs in their gardens.

The France Vs England match kicks-off at 10pm on Saturday, with South Africa Vs Argentina starting 24 hours later. Entrance is free.

Communications Officer at the Centre Yiannis Hadjiloucas explained that “since France is the host nation, we thought it would be a nice idea to set something like this up”. He acknowledged that Rugby Union is not a popular sport with Cypriots but said that Saturday’s France vs England match-up “is sure to attract many expats currently living in Cyprus.”
