PRLog - Apr. 26, 2012 - MANCHESTER, U.K. -- It is estimated that more than 500,000 people are expected to join Manchester’s 2012 Olympics celebrations as the city centre is set to become one of the country’s official viewing parks. Exchange Square will be turned into one of 22 national ‘live sites’ for the London Olympics and will screen up to 18 hours of coverage each day of the games this summer. The Managing Director of CM3, A Sales and Marketing Company based in Manchester, commented on the news, saying “The Olympics are a big deal! Everyone is really excited for them to begin and I personally think 500,000 is an understatement”.

The square will open in ‘Olympics mode’ on July 26. Viewers will have the opportunity to watch the games, which start on July 27, on The Triangle’s big screen. The square will be decked out in Olympics colours. There will also be food and drinks stands and sports activities. CM3’s Managing Director commented further, “It’s going to be celebrated in a huge way, it’s really exciting to see preparations for events all over the UK going underway, it’s going to be incredible.”

Manchester’s city centre spokesman, Pat Karney, said: "Exchange Square is a perfect place to celebrate this city’s love of sport. It’s going to be one of the biggest celebrations we’ve seen. It will be like being at the Olympics itself." Coun Mike Amesbury, spokesman for sport and leisure, said: "This will bring the Olympics alive for Mancunians and reaffirm our position as a world capital of sport." Old Trafford is one of six major venues being used to host Olympics football. Nine matches will be played there including both a men’s and women’s semi-final. A source from CM3 said, “Old Trafford is one of the most iconic football stadiums in the world and it will be thrilling to watch footballing greats from all over the world compete for the gold medal.”
