LONDON, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
This summer, use MatchPint the perfect app for finding your nearest pubs showing the Olympics for your favourite events.
With just a few days to go until the start of the biggest sporting event in a generation, thousands of non-ticket holding types are beginning to ponder where they are going to be enjoying this historic British summer.
The pub talk has already started - How many records will Bolt break this time? Have Sir Chris Hoy's thighs got even bigger? And more importantly, how will I know which pubs are showing all this mouth-watering action?
Well with MatchPint, the UK's number one sports pub finder, it couldn't be easier to look up a local pub. The free iPhone app tells punters exactly which pubs are showing which events - from the rowing to the relays - making it one of the best apps for use during the Olympics on the market. MatchPint will also tell you how close the pub is, whether the commentary will be on, if the action is in HD or 3D and even whether or not it has a beer garden for you to relax and soak up the (hopefully) sunny weather. What could be better?
To download the free iPhone app, simply search for "MatchPint" in the App store, or click here. Those without iPhones can garner the same information by visiting the website, http://www.matchpint.co.uk.
With information on which pubs are showing which specific events, MatchPint is one of the must have apps in London this summer. Punters without tickets to the 100m final won't want to walk into a pub only to find that the landlord has the Rhythmic Gymnastics on instead. With pub landlords updating their own fixture schedules, punters can be sure that their chosen sport will be on the TV when they walk in.
As well as helping you find your nearest pub for a spot of the action, MatchPint is publishing a series of blogs giving you the low down on what to expect from each sport.
Unlike the sort of intros you'll see on the BBC and in the broadsheets, each blog has its own MatchPint spin whether that's listing some key pub facts to help you dominate conversation over a pint - "Steve Redgrave took two years out of Rowing after his second Gold medal to try his hand at Bob-sleighing" - running through some great skirmishes in the Games' history - "in 1924, at least two Fencing bouts developed into real life duels over matters of honour" - and drawing analogies between major sports and trashy U.S. teen dramas - "Water Polo and Blood in the O.C.".
So whether it's a local pub you're after, or just an entertaining introduction into a sport you're off to catch, either visit the website or download one of best apps available for London 2012.
