Even though I’m not a big soccer fan I am watching a lot of matches of the Euro 2008 just because it’s in Austria and some of the games are in Vienna. We watched the match Turkey vs Croatia on a huge (!) Full HD screen at the Burgtheater. Telekom Austria invited some members of the Austrian Journalists Club to watch the match there during an “Exclusive Viewing”. It’s called “exclusive” because you were only able to get there with a personal invitation. I got one as a member of the AJC.
We had our very own box in the theater and a very nice waiter who brought anything we wanted. The really great thing was that EVERYTHING was free. Free drinks (nonalcoholic and alcoholic) and a delicious free buffet.
It was a really great evening and a very exciting match at the end. Turkey won the penalty shoot-out.
