    EURO2016 – France

The kick-off will take place with the “France – Romania” match at the Stade de France on Friday 10th, June at 21:00 (CET).

Despite the time difference for the fans and climate difference among cities for the teams we had a chance to watch very good games.

    UEFA Winners

    This is it! Season is over and both Champions League and Europa League have their winners. FC Bayern München had their fifth European Cup victory at their tenth appearance. With these statistics Bayern have become the joint (with Liverpool FC) third most successful club in European Cup history after Real Madrid CF (9) and AC Milan (7). When it comes to Chelsea FC, this win might stay under the shadow of last year’s Champions League winner title but story has more. With this reward they became entitled to be called as “a member of illustrious band of clubs”. There were only four teams who have lifted each of the European…
