    Euro 2012 Final

    There is an elegant symmetry to the results we have seen throughout this Euro 2012 campaign. We have come a long way since the evening of June 10th; experiencing both the highs and the lows, and suffering the numerous low-scoring matches in between. But it was on that night exactly three weeks before the final that Spain and Italy faced off for the first time in their indecisive opening match in Gdansk. As fans across Europe watched a cautious score-draw being played out, the general consensus was that Italy had done well to hold on for a tie. Spain, as reigning World and European champions, were favourites not only for that match, but for the tournament as a whole. But three weeks on, has any of that changed? Certainly we have all been impressed by the Italian flair and calculated finishing. We have also seen the Spanish looking incredibly rattled...

      The 2012/13 UEFA Champions League competition looks set to be a scintillating one, with many teams strengthening their ranks in a bid to challenge for the honour of capturing the most prestigious title in European club football and becoming Champions League winners.

After their historic night in Munich at the end of last season, Roman Abramovich finally got his hands on the trophy he has coveted.

      Although 2012 is a bumper year for sport, there is only one place where fans of the beautiful game will be watching in June. Well, that’s not strictly true, because the European Championships will again be played out across two host nations. This time the joint honours fall to Poland and Ukraine and it’s new ground for both countries, as neither has hosted a major football tournament before. Nine teams have held the European Championship trophy over the years, and all of the previous winners will be competing this time around in Euro 2012. Germany, with an unequalled three wins will be hoping for another, whilst France will want to score a hat-trick of titles to equal the record of their Teutonic neighbours. But both teams will have to deal with the formidable reigning champions Spain, who are rightly considered the favourites to retain the honours this time around....

    Watching football matches from your arm chair, whether with your friends or on your own, is entertaining. However, there is a buzz that you gain from watching the matches live. Many supporters relish in the buzz that they gain from watching a match in the stands and that is something that brings them back time and time again. This buzz and charge is not the only great thing about football matches, either. The Energy in the Stands One of the biggest benefits to watching football matches live is the energy and atmosphere in the stands. This is similar to the buzz that many supporters talk about. Sitting at home often leads to turning off the game because your favorite team is losing or because the game is not interesting; however, when in the stands, you are willing to stay because the energy in the stands makes up for how badly...
