This year’s Premier League season had the sort of fairytale storyline that captivated the most avowed football sceptics. Leicester! Who’dathunkit? Even your mate who can’t fathom the offside rule without sock-puppets will have a view on Jamie Vardy and Claudio Ranieri’s heroics.
The domestic season wrapped up last weekend, but there’s good news for even part-time footy fans looking for a new bandwagon to jump on – Euro 2016 kicks off in France on June 10. And almost everyone gets caught up in the excitement of international football, especially with three Home Nations teams to cheer on (if you’re from one of the countries who didn’t qualify, well… here are some top phone apps to distract you for the next month or so).
We’ve teamed up with our friends from FourFourTwo to create The Road to France, in association with Continental. It’s a site that contains everything you need to know about Euro 2016 – whether you’re a lifelong football fan who will spend the next month stadium-hopping in France, or just a casual fan getting caught up in the fervour.
The Road to France site includes handy guides to the major host cities and sights, quizzes to test your knowledge, and features on some of the teams and key storylines. And even if you find football as interesting as watching your pants dry on the washing line, it’s packed with some top technology features you’ll love.
Read about how technology is changing football (for both spectators and players) and the essential apps you need to follow Euro 2016. You’ll even find a list of 11 winning football games from the past four decades of computing (which made us want to dig out our Amiga 500 for a quick blast of Sensible Soccer).
It’s everything you need to know about Euro 2016, plus a load of top technology content, in one easy to digest website. Simple. To take a look, just click here.
