SINGAPORE — Besides being the official Singapore broadcaster for the English Premier League, telco company StarHub will also be hosting a series of events as the league season reaches its climactic end.

First up is a free live screening of the match between Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur on 13 April at Capitol Singapore's outdoor plaza. With Spurs aiming for a top four finish and Champions League qualification, all eyes will be on their captain Son Heung-min as they try and negotiate this tricky away trip to St James' Park.

The match will begin its telecast at 7.30pm, but there will be fun-filled activities from 6pm onwards, such as photo prints, airbrush tattoos and claw machines. Free party treats like popcorn and candy floss will also be available for everyone to enjoy while watching the match.

There will be a special OPPO experience booth for fans to try out new OPPO phones, while StarHub subscribers will be entitled to goodie bag redemption, while stocks last.

On the final day of the season on 19 May, StarHub will be holding a "Football For All Carnival" at the Sands Grand Ballroom at Marina Bay Sands. Fans will get the chance to watch all 10 of the final EPL matches at the same venue, as well as enjoy an evening of free activities, treats and lucky draw prizes.
