FOOTBALL By Joshua Elvince | June 11th 2021
Football lovers in Kenya will have a rare chance to stream all the 51 Euro matches on Showmax Pro, when the 60th edition of the European competition kicks off today, Friday 11 June 2021
Motivated by nothing but the interest of football fans, Showmax will grant every football lover an opportunity to follow every piece of gruelling battle, for the next 30 days, as 24 European teams square it out in a "romantic gesture", spread in 11 cities across Europe.
The Euro 2020 was deferred by a year following the outbreak of Covid-19 early last year, but Showmax now promises to bring to you the true experience of European football, on right on the palm of your hands, through their app.
Kenyan fans have been starved of enough football action following the ban of fans from the stadium. And with the conclusion of other major European leagues and tough times occasioned by the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic, this is another rare chance to have a feel of the football environment from any part of the country.
The Euro 2020 which kicks off with an opener between Turkey and Italy, promises a possible reunion of two old teammates - Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, who is set to return to the French National team, for the time since 2016.
France are in Group F alongside reigning European champions - Portugal, Germany and Hungary. You will be able to watch all these fixtures on Showmax Pro, via a live feed from SuperSport.
Showmax Pro, that also has live matches from the English Premier League, Italy's Serie A and La Liga, as well as South Africa's Premier Soccer League, fuses sports with the existing Showmax entertainment service, plus music channels and news.
To be able to stream any of the Euro matches, highlights and read about your favourite team and players, you’ll have to sign up on their platform then choose either the ksh. 2,100 bundle that gives you access on four devices, or the mobile-only access for Ksh. 1050 for the month. All these just at the touch of a button right there on your phone, on the Showmax app. Not even the crazy late evening traffic that Nairobi is best known for, will be able to stop this movement.
Other sports documentaries available on Showmax include HBO’s gripping golfing documentary Tiger; What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali; and Klopp: The Inside Story. Showmax ??Pro also includes a selection of live news channels, such as NTV and KTN, as well as Euro News, Africa News and Newzroom Afrika.
Showmax has been in Kenya since 2015 and they have captured the market with some of the best local shows like Selina, Kina, Njoro wa Uba airing on the Showmax standard plan, and this year, they delivered their first original series shot in Kenya, called Crime and Justice.
To watch the Euro 2020 games, plus access all the usual Showmax movies and series in, all you need to do is to sign up on www.showmax.com.
