I think we’ll all agree that sports like Football are no fun when you are watching it alone at home. The UEFA Final between France and Portugal is being aired at 12.30 AM on Sunday July 10th. A fully charged match won’t be any fun when you have to watch it with the volume down and taking care not to wake anyone up at home. You need the camaraderie, your gang to support your team and of course the freedom to yell out loud at crucial points. So why not join the other football lovers at these spots in Kochi that are going to be screening the game? Why not make this UEFA Finale a bonding moment with your buddies and yell “Viva La France!” or “Go Portugal!”
