Jordan to set up 23 big screens for World Cup fans
font size    

Jordan will set up 23 big screens across the country to offer football fans in impoverished areas to get live World Cup coverage, Jordanian officials said on Wednesday.

The Jordanian armed forces and security agencies will also be provided with satellite receivers to be able to enjoy the game.

"The king is determined to allow poor members of society to join the world in following this important sporting event," the official said.

Jordanian King Abdullah was president of the Jordan Football Federation for five years until he ascended the throne in February 1999 following the death of his father, King Hussein.
