A Scottish shopping centre’s pop-up area with six plastic seats in front of a television has been described as the ‘worst fanzone in Europe’. 

Antonine Shopping Centre in Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire, launched the designated fan area earlier this week.

The zone was assembled so shoppers could follow all the Euro 2020 action ahead of Scotland’s first game against Czech Republic on Monday.

An image shows how the two-metre wide area, placed in front of Superdrug, has been set up in the middle of the shopping centre walkway and sectioned off by string with flags attached. 

Lauryn Keating posted a video to TikTok on Wednesday after being left shocked by the bleak-looking area.

Lauryn captioned the footage: ‘Euro 2020 in Cumbernauld’, followed by a face palm and crying with laughter emoji.

In the clip, she says alongside a photograph of the area: ‘We all know Glasgow has the Fan Zone for the Euros, wait till I show you what Cumbernauld town centre has.

‘What the f*** is that? 

‘Who f****** thought of that and who in their right mind is going to sit in the middle of a pure s***hole of a town centre outside Superdrug watching the Euros?’ 

The clip has since been viewed over 47,000 times and received hundreds of comments from viewers. 

One social media user wrote: ‘Just seen Cumbernauld’s version of the fan zone and I am losing my mind.’

Another said: ‘Omg. Totally the worst fanzone in Europe, would have set the whole look off if the TV was an old Grundig.’

And a third commented: ‘Walked past it the other day and everyone was sniggering at it.’

Others described it as the ‘next level of tragic’, while one person simply wrote: ‘Only in Cambernauld.’  

MailOnline has approached Antonine Shopping Centre for comment.
