Spaceslide.co.uk’s essential items for creating the ultimate sports sanctuary – equipped with red and white colour scheme and summer 2012’s must-have gadget, the Izon room monitor. TV wars have already begun across the UK, as couples build up to deciding who will go where to watch coverage of Euro 2012 between 8 June and 1 July, when bickering over the TV remote will reach its peak.
In fact, it’s predicted that 87% of blokes whose partners aren’t keen on sitting through hours of sporting coverage will find themselves relegated to the bedroom or the spare room.
So Spaceslide.co.uk has compiled a checklist for those who get sidelined on how to create the ultimate Sport Sanctuary to go to when it all kicks off.
