23 Apr TEAMING UP WITH UEFA
Megabooth at the UEFA Champions League
Football has been on the agenda at Megabooth in April with trips up North for the first leg of Manchester Utd vs Bayern Munich game, followed by Chelsea’s penultimate game against French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG). Both games were part of the quarter-finals of the coveted Champions League, the world famous European cup organised by UEFA.
The photo booth of choice for the Uefa Champions League was the standalone Photo Pod teamed with a Uefa branded backdrop for visitors of the Champions lounge at Old Trafford (Manchester) and Stamford Bridge (Chelsea) to enjoy pre and post game. The backdrop was a replica of where the current players and managers are interviewed post game, which meant many visitors used their Heineken pint glasses as a makeshift mic.
Ex Chelsea player and manager John Hollins MBE (pictured above) hosted the evening at Chelsea and was left to entertain a nervy room of blues fans…at least until the final whistle was blown. It was up to a handful of ex players from both clubs including the legendary Danish goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel MBE, former England international Gary Pallister, the little Portuguese playmaker Deco (pictured above) and one of Chelsea’s all time top goal scorers Kerry Dixon, to work the room with stories from their glittering football careers.
Heineken and HTC are the two main sponsors for the Uefa Champions League this season. Heineken offered visitors light refreshments throughout the evenings and lessons on how to pull the perfect pint, whereas HTC used both events as an opportunity to showcase their latest product, the new HTC One M8 smartphone.
For Manchester Utd, the Champions League quarter-final was the end of road in the competition but Chelsea marched on into the semi-finals and we will be returning with a photo booth to Stamford Bridge next Wednesday (30th May) for the nail biting decider against Spanish opposition Atletico Madrid.
