He said that if Spain DO NOT win the European Championship then a staggering 200 euros will be deducted off clients bills! To be eligible for the discount you have to have made your reservation before 1st July for a minimum stay of 1 week at any of the four hotels within the group - two of which are in Benidorm: Hotel Magic Fenicia which overlooks Dove Park on the Poniente side and also Hotel Magic Villa located on the Calle Gerona, almost next to Morgans Tavern on the Levante side.
This is a new marketing campaign which the group hopes will fill up any vacant rooms available - it is certainly a new type of promotion and one I have never before. The Vice President said this is just one of many initiatives which the group have instigated since the beginning of the financial crisis to increase bookings - they have also subsidized those that are unemployed and single parents staying at the groups hotels.
In his speech, the Vice President said "Magic Costa Blanca always supports the nations sportsmen and we are convinced that our team will win the European Championships in Poland on 1st July. But if not, we want our customers happy and to celebrate by offering our customers a cheaper holiday"
Well Spain plays tonight, against the Republic of Ireland - 8.45pm kick off. Their first game against Italy on Sunday resulted in a 1-1 draw then the next match after today is on Monday 18th against the last of the Group C teams, Croatia. At the moment Croatia lead group C - Spain need a win tonight to go up to second place which is currently held by Italy, but they are likely to be trashed by Croatia tonight.
All Spanish bars will certainly be full of anxious fans - you can always tell when Spain score a goal as they let off bangers and fireworks ... good luck to Casilla and the team (are you all impressed with my football knowledge - I had to ask my son as I know nada!)
Englands next game is tomorrow against Sweden then the last match in Group D is against Ukraine on Tuesday 19th.
4 days of Quarter Finals start on Thursday 21st, Semi's on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th then the Final on Sunday 1st July.
