heinken cup final

Hi,

We will be in Lisbon for the Heinken Cup final (sat 19th may). I know hennessys are showing it but on the off chance we dont make it there for some reason, would it be on TV so we could watch it in our hotel room? We are staying in Sana Lisboa.

Thanks!

You'll have to ask the hotel, all depends on which TV channels they provide

If it's on Portuguese TV it will be on the subscription channel SportTV which hotels do not pipe into rooms but often have in the bar or lounge.

Rugby is not a popular sport here and although the major internationals are shown, I have yet to see any Heineken Cup matches shown except where bars run by ex-pats have British or Irish TV.

Will be on SportTV. Contact the hotel to know if they have this channel or not.

Thank you for the swift reply! Appreciate it. I'll send the hotel an email to enquire. I can imagine that rugby isn't particularly popular in Portugal. Looking forward to that match tho as our team just made the final yesterday. :-)
