BERLIN, Mar 23 (Reuters) A scaled down replica of Berlin's World Cup stadium will be built in the centre of the German capital to show games to around 10,000 ticketless fans, according to plans announced today.

The mini-stadium will sit on the lawn in front of the Reichstag parliament building and show all 64 matches live on giant screens.

On days without matches, it will host pop concerts.

Fans will still need to apply for passes for the public viewings at a cost of three euros from World Cup sponsors adidas, who are behind the project.

Construction will start in mid-April.

Berlin's real World Cup stadium will host the final on July 9 in front of over 66,000 fans.
