INDUSTRY FIRST FOR WALKABOUT AS IT LIVE STREAMS EUROS PREVIEW EVENT WITH HARRY REDKNAPP
However, in a market-leading move the preview will also be live streamed to all participating Walkabouts and to the Coral website, meaning that those not lucky enough to secure one of the exclusive tickets to Walkabout Temple – which were offered to fans free of charge via the @WalkaboutTemple and @walkaboutsport social media feeds – can still benefit from the event. Customers will even be able to interact with the panel, live tweeting their questions by using a specially designated event hash tag. All Walkabouts will also be live streaming these social media feeds, photos and even jokes from the event at Temple. The live streaming has been made possible thanks to state-of-the-art audio-visual technology, which has been installed in the bars.
iNTERTAIN CEO, John Leslie, said: “The live streaming of the Euros Preview event we are holding at Walkabout Temple is indicative of just one of the many ways we are building on our reputation for unbeatable match day atmosphere through market-leading developments and quality partnerships. In addition to a special Euros-inspired menu, with food from all participating countries, there will be dedicated drinks offers and some bars – including Walkabout Reading – have either had or are due to have one-of-a-kind stadium style seating installed. The seating can be pre-booked with eskies (cool boxes full of beer) ahead of the big game, giving fans a true taste of big match atmosphere.”
Seats in all Walkabouts can also be pre-booked for all Euros matches, which will be shown on the bars’ giant projection screens, and multiple HD TVs. Combined with advanced sound and lighting systems, it’s impossible to miss out on the action.
