Street entertainers will keep fans happy as they head to Auckland’s Eden Park for the last New Zealand-hosted match at the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Tournament organisers expect more than 40,000 fans to attend the semi-final between Spain and Sweden, starting at 8pm on Tuesday August 15.

From 6pm, tournament mascot Tazuni, the football-loving penguin, will greet spectators with other performers including Tinsel monsters (The Human Agency), LED suit roaming dancers (Vosperton), eight-piece big band (Auckland City Scoundrels) and multiple face painters (BodyFX).
