Giant TV Screens Installed in Buenos Aires for World Cup

BUENOS AIRES – The mayor of Buenos Aires inaugurated on Monday one of the two giant TV screens being installed in the Argentine capital to give fans a free look at the soccer matches of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

“We Argentines are total soccer fans and getting together to see the games is something that really unites us. We’ll all be cheering on Argentina to reach the finals and win. We have a lot faith, but what’s important is that this will be our meeting place,” Mayor Horacio Rodriguez Larreta told a press conference.

One screen will be located in the Retiro neighborhood’s Plaza San Martin and the other in Centenario Park.

The first broadcast will show the inaugural ceremony and the kickoff match between Russia and Saudi Arabia this Thursday.

Saturday will be Argentina’s turn, when it takes the field against Iceland.

“We have to pump up the spirit of our team, of our selection, and make it felt by each and every one of our players so they have the best World Cup ever and go the highest they can go,” Deputy Mayor Diego Santilli said.
