Monday, 11th February, Dublin:  Love football and love your friends! Virgin Media TV customers will be able to share their love of football with a chosen friend by gifting them a month’s free access to Virgin Media Sport through the Virgin Media TV Anywhere App - so they too can be at the heart of the game and the upcoming UEFA Champions League knockout stages.


Virgin Media is sending a unique code to all TV customers. All they’ll need to do is send that code to their chosen one for access to the Virgin Media TV App, with no strings attached.


Paul Higgins, Director of Consumer, Virgin Media said, “Virgin Media is Ireland’s home for top class European football and now even more fans can join in over the coming months, absolutely free. Our customers are going to be popular with their friends and family. Your chosen one could be your best friend, a family member, an in-law, neighbour or simply someone you know who loves football. With the UEFA Champions League knockout stages fast approaching, we wanted to give all sports fans this fantastic opportunity to share the joy of the game.”
