COMPLETE COVERAGE OF UEFA EURO 2016TM ACROSS ALL SCREENS, ONLY ON ASTRO


Ok, yours truly is not exactly a HUGE football fan but I do enjoy watching my favourite teams play against one another... as a member of the fairer sex, I take the opportunity to "cuci mata" (make googly eyes....) or admire the good looking players more then understand the game, like my male friends and husband....

I was at Sunway Pyramid for the UEFA EURO 2016 Kick Off.. When I got there to the main entrance of Sunway Pyramid, the action was already in full throttle... there were plenty of stage performances and activities



There were face painting of your favorite teams logo as well as a caricature booth for free caricatures...


Football players wanna be can try their luck at the score & win game booth...


And best of all for all us social media and internet addicts... YES network provided us with free WiFi!!!!!


 And we were definitely wowed by Raje Freestyler  during a freestyler football demonstration....


So with this, brings us back to the  UEFA EURO 2016... So what is it... Will France rise to the occasion with home advantage? Can Spain stop Germany, the current World Cup champion, to achieve a remarkable third straight European Championship? 


Malaysians are set to get the best front row seats to all the thrill and drama of UEFA EURO 2016TM with the most comprehensive coverage on Astro - TV, online, mobile and radio.

The highlight for the UEFA EURO 2016 Kick Off was the presence and appearance of  ex- football legend (I would call him a legend as he has so many goals and such under him... and he has played in the very notable football clubs, such as Liverpool and Real Madrid and naturally for Spain as well!!! None other then Fernando Morientes., which got many fans excited and thrilled to be seeing him in person..


2016 is set to be a great year for sports fans.

The event continued with a Stompers performance when one of the Stompers managed... (yeah... sempat lagi, tu) to get a selfie with Fernando Morientes right in the middle of the performance... hahaha, followed by a press conference and fans meet and greet....
