PUBS in England are ALREADY fully booked for the Euros final on Sunday, even though the Three Lions haven’t played their semi-final match yet.
A whopping 34million fans are expected to tune into ITV and cheer on the lads tonight as they battle it out against Denmark for a position in the finals.
But Brits have already booked out the pubs for Sunday’s match – despite not knowing whether England will make it through.
Fans have taken to social media complaining they can’t find a free table anywhere for the weekend.
One fan said: "Not being able to book a pub in London for the Euros semis or final is absolutely gutting."
Another said they couldn't find a free table anywhere, while one said their local was already booked up.
One Brit said fans are having to "fight amongst ourselves" to bag a seat in a boozer for the last match.
When The Sun checked availability of pubs in London, we found tables had been fully booked up.
The Mitre, in Holland Park, had no space left, while the Hope & Anchor, in Brixton, wasn't taking any more bookings.
The race for space at pubs comes after The Sun exclusively revealed Boris Johnson is extending pub opening times to 11:15pm for the final match on Sunday.
Usually, pubs have to close at 10:30pm on a Sunday, but an emergency tweak of the law will be made so boozers can show all of the match.
The extended opening times is in case of extra time and penalties – and this will happen no matter if England make it through to the finals.
But punters will still have to follow Covid rules when watching the match.
Customers don't have to wear masks or stick to social distancing rules – but this only kicks in from Monday.
It will come as a bitter blow to Britain's boozers, who have begged the PM to relax restrictions so they can pack punters in for the big games.
Pub experts estimate that businesses have lost out on £5million worth of sales during previous Euro 2020 matches because of Covid restrictions.
Every pub-goer must check in with the NHS Covid app to get a pint.
This also means that pub-goers will be told to book a test immediately if they sit near Covid drinker in a pub.
