BenQ brings Euro 2004 football fever to the Middle East
As Euro 2004 football fever sweeps across the Middle East, BenQ, an official information technology partner of the UEFA championships, has launched two dedicated websites, bringing enjoyment of the tournament to fans across the region.
BenQEuro2004.com, takes a sideways look at the event in Portugal, offering soccer nuts a lighthearted and humorous guide to the 23-day football fest. The interactive site offers practical advice on how to throw the perfect Euro themed party, while ‘Football Fashion – Off the Pitch’ gives style advice on how to achieve the latest David Beckham look.
For non-football fanatics, the ‘Bluffers Guide’ provides practical advice on what to say and more importantly what not to say, during the match - to make you sound like a true supporter. Daily polls, reviews and a weekly quiz, will also offer armchair fans in the Middle East the opportunity to take part in the extravaganza.
BenQ is partnering UEFA as an official statistics provider for euro2004.com, as part of its drive to make information technology more enjoyable. BenQ has supplied the tournament with its latest technology, including its range of Joybook laptop PCs, and LCD monitors, to help the public and officials monitor the games.
