The Guardian: "a Godsend for sports fans in the UK"MatchPint tells you which pubs nearby are showing which sports events on TV!
Never be stuck for a boozer showing the big game ever again.
Oh hey there pal, welcome to the extended blurb for our little baby. How’s that looong afternoon at work going? Nothing like some thigh slappin’ good app specs to really slay 5 minutes at the desk in the most white knuckle manner possible.
Buckle in and get ready to be power-bombed through a table by the Kevin Pietersen of product descriptions – entertaining, controversial and married to an entirely forgettable pop star.
In essence, MatchPint’s simpler than Wayne Rooney but as useful as Johnny Wilkinson’s left peg - we find you bars nearby that are televising specific sporting fixtures. Download this free app to find out exactly which pubs nearby are showing the game you want to watch, wherever you are in the UK.
Lets cut to the chase and get any negative ideas out of the way now.
‘But, why do I need an app to do that?’ I hear a tiny, pathetic percentage of you snivel.
Because sometimes people in charge of pubs do mental things. I missed Andy Murray lifting Wimbledon because all three pubs I went into to watch the final in were showing Crufts – true story. Some bars, however, (gasp) DON’T EVEN HAVE TVs AT ALL.
We’re waaaaaay more than just a world class pub finder though. No, like a marathon runner with a terrible sense of direction, we are all about going the extra mile.
Team MP strive to make your match day as easy and enjoyable as possible. Once you’ve located an ideal boozer showing the game you’re after, we allow you to invite your friends to join with the click of a button before earning real rewards – LIKE MOTHER-LICKIN’ FREE DRINKS – for simply checking in at the pub, all via the app.
Think of us as the Roger Federer of sport apps – the complete package, universally loved, dangerously handsome and capable of delivering when the pressure (to find a decent pub) is on.
Similarities to the Swiss sporting deity don’t end there, we also turn up to work each and every day repping a sweet bandana. It’s practical, trendy and really plants a psychological haymaker on other people in investment meetings.
Whether youre looking to watch Champions League footy, the Rugby World Cup, or even those early morning F1 races, MatchPint has the answer and more.
Praise and Joyous Hollerings
