The England squad has been announced, there are just four weeks until kick off, and now the British Beer & Pub Association has produced some useful tips ahead of the FIFA World Cup.

The full guidance, developed with the National Police Chief's Council and the Local Government Association, is available on the trade group's website.

The advice for licensees includes letting the authorities know you are showing games, ensuring a designated premises supervisor is on site at all times, and providing transport information available to ensure customers can leave safely.

BBPA chief Brigid Simonds said: "Pubs are the home of live sport and will be at the heart of the World Cup for those fans who won't be making it to Russia.

"This new BBPA guidance has been designed to help pubs have a successful tournament by working closely with their local authorities to ensure as many people as possible choose to enjoy the football at their local."

A spokesperson for the National Police Chiefs' Council added: "We welcome the guidance published by the BBPA and hope that premises adopt the good practice it contains, this will help ensure that all those who wish to watch the World Cup in pubs, bars and clubs can do so in as safe an environment as possible."
