Cape Town will experience the Barclays Premier League like never before when the official fan park, Barclays Premier League Live comes to the Mother City.

- Free and interactive fan park at Camps Bay High School 19 - 20 March

- Premier League legends and interactive attractions on offer

Soccer fans will get the chance to get up close and personal with the Barclays Premier League Trophy, meet former players, visit team tents and watch matches live on a giant 118-square-metre screen.

BPL Live will take place at Camps Bay High School on the 19th and 20th March 2016. It will be free, interactive experience designed for the entire family to enjoy. Hosted by the Premier League and their title sponsor, Barclays, the park will be open from 12:00 each day and will close shortly after the matches finish.

Two of South Africa’s greatest Premier League players, Quinton Fortune and Lucas Radebe, will join other Barclays Premier League legends like Peter Schmeichel, Robbie Fowler and Shaun Goater in giving fans the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of their heroes.

All of the action will be overseen by John Dykes, the lead presenter for SuperSports’ coverage of the Premier League, who will be on stage, providing insight into all of the weekend’s exciting match-ups including Everton v Arsenal on Saturday 14:45 and Sunday’s grand finale, the Manchester derby at 18:00.

Fans interested in attending should register at http://www.bpllive.com/ or by dialling *134*275#. Entry will be granted on a first come, first served basis, but all fans must register before entering.

To help get fans to the free event, a free park and ride facility will run from the Grand Parade, Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha on a loop system to Camps Bay High School.

Premier League presenter, John Dykes, said: “BPL Live is all about bringing the electrifying atmosphere of a Premier League match to our international fans.

"The first ever BPL Live in Johannesburg reminded us just how passionate South African fans are about the Premier League.

"I can’t wait to see that the enthusiasm the Cape Town fans will bring to the park now that they're getting their chance.”
