"Public viewing" in Weil?

I don't mean "people-watching" or some state-sponsored Stasi-esque ruse. I mean watching football matches with thousands of others on a field somewhere in Weil.

According to today's Weiler Zeitung, the Dreiländergarten down at the old garden show grounds here in Weil could be the venue for the public showing of matches on a giant screen at Euro 2008 next summer. With Basle's designated "public viewing" venues looking woefully ill-equipped to cope with the 100,000 people expected to visit the city on each match day, the organisers are looking at the possibility of setting up additional venues over the border. Weil has been earmarked as one of these venues.

Anyway, you read it here first.
