World Cup at Welcome Family Holiday Park
22nd May

Our New Lounge Bar Hosts the 2018 FIFA World Cup!

It’s the countdown to the FIFA World Cup 2018, the biggest sporting event in the world. It’s the time where the very best football talents from across the globe are on display, and sporting and non-sporting fans alike gather to support their national teams.

If you’re planning a holiday to Devon during the month-long tournament, Welcome Family Holiday Park is the ideal location to follow all the games and ensure you won’t miss out on any of the action. And they’ll still be plenty of time to enjoy a fun-packed holiday in this lovely part of the South Devon coast.

To get you in the football mood, here is our quick guide to the FIFA World Cup 2018 and our fantastic facilities here at the holiday park, where you can enjoy every game in a comfortable, relaxing and fun environment.


Russia 2018

The 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup takes place in Russia, where 32 teams will play 64 games hosted across 12 stadiums.

The first game between hosts Russia and Saudi Arabia kicks off on 14 June. The final will take place in Moscow at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday 15 July.

Group G

  • England
  • Belgium
  • Panama
  • Tunisia

England is in Group G and will be playing its Group Stage matches on the following days:

  • 18 June, England vs. Tunisia, 7pm (BST)
  • 24 June, England vs. Panama 1pm (BST)
  • 28 June, England vs. Belgium 7pm (BST)

Although England’s 23 man squad has yet to be officially announced, it’s anticipated that coach Gareth Southgate will pick a Tottenham-heavy squad headed by Harry Kane, who’s been in fantastic form this season.

Ex-international Southgate is confident that England will make it through to the knockout stages, although Belgium could prove a strong contender for first place.

Could this be the year England proves itself? It’s certainly going to be a tense, nerve-wracking and exciting tournament for the Three Lions.

Even if you’re on holiday, you’ll want to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the action, and can follow the crucial games.
