Jimmy Kelly, Chair of Jersey FA's Board of Directors, adds: "This is an excellent initiative that will showcase the diverse population of our island, as well as capturing the impact that a major sports event can have on the Jersey community.

The fan zone is subject to permission being granted by Jersey's Bailiff.
