Sports film lovers will get their money’s worth at the evening summer cinema powered by Kinopolis (June 26 to 28). As part of the public viewing powered by meine Bank, the public will also have the opportunity to watch selected matches live on an LED screen. In addition, live bands, a DJ bus and food trucks with culinary delights will provide a very special summer festival atmosphere during the tournament week.
