The sporting spotlight will be heavily fixed on France this summer, as the nation prepares to welcome the European Football Championships.
24 teams will compete for the chance to be crowned champions of Europe, with global superstars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Paul Pogba seeking to help their respective nations achieve glory; Euro 2016 is likely to produce fireworks!
France are the hosts, and also the favourites to win the tournament, however the usual suspects; Spain, Germany and England, as well as many people’s favourites Belgium, will all fancy their chances.
If you’re lucky enough to have tickets or fancy heading to Paris to soak up the atmosphere, why not check-in to our hotel in Paris…after all, at the church of Penta, football is religion. We’d love if you decided to share your Euro 2016 experience with us.
One thing we can guarantee is that the French capital will be engulfed by the tournament. Paris will be swarmed with tourists, socialising and partying alongside Parisians. Together, they’ll celebrate the beautiful game.
If you don’t quite make it to Paris, don’t panic! You can enjoy every match live, in the comfort of all of our pentalounges’.

Here’s 4 things to expect during the upcoming European Championships…
Supporters are one of the most important parts of any major tournament. They provide the noise and the colour, as well as creating an electric atmosphere both within the stadiums and in the streets, that the players thrive on.
High Quality Football
This tournament has so much talent, it’s frightening. There’s a real mix of youth and experience so there’s the potential for both legends to be crowned and stars to be made. Prepare for some classic European football encounters.
A Month-Long Party in France
The whole of France will be getting behind their beloved football team… the last time the French hosted a football tournament, they won it! It would be a fantastic story if the host nation were to win, especially given the traumatic times France has experienced recently.
There’s one rivalry that we have a particular interest in…you guessed it, England Vs Germany. 2 major names within the international setup that have enjoyed a rivalry featuring many classic matches and two crucial goal line decisions.
From the days of Bobby Charlton and Franz Beckenbauer, to Gary Lineker and Jurgen Klinsmann, and now Harry Kane and Thomas Muller, this has been one of the great rivalries in international football. Germany have fared better in the competition than the English, however we will just have to wait and see about this year…
If drawn against each other, both sides would enter the fixture confident, however the entire English population would be praying it didn’t go to penalties, because we all know how that ends, especially against the Germans.
The Euro 2016 countdown is officially on…and we can’t wait! Check-in with us, and not only will you be able to catch all the action live, but our #pentalounge is open 24-7, which means you can celebrate all night long if your team wins!
