The screening of the match between England and Uruguay on Thursday 19 June is being hosted by Paragon Hospitality and VIP Events. More than 300 people are expected to attend the event which will include a gourmet three course dinner followed by the game, which will be broadcast on a large projector screen in the Assembly Hall.
The dinner will be hosted by Sky Sports’s Ed Chamberlin, and a team of pundits will talk guests through the match, including Southampton idol Matt Le Tissier, former England cricketer Phil Tufnell, Arsenal legend Paul Merson and top-flight referee Dermot Gallagher.
Head of Events at Paragon, Lucy Ainsley, explained their choice of venue: "We contracted Church House to hold our World Cup screening as it is the perfect fit to host our VIP clientele and legendary football personalities."
