The friendly city of Vigo welcomed the 12 Now TV Hong Kong guests with open arms. The climax of their stay was the thrilling 2-2 draw between RC Celta and Real Madrid at Balaidos, where they soaked up the spectacular atmosphere alongside the Galician fans.
Six lucky winners of the contest organised by Now TV and six of the broadcaster's journalists, including the influential presenter Ayanna, kicked off their experience in the best possible fashion: by enjoying Celta's warm-up at the Estadio de Balaidos just a few feet away from the players. They also witnessed the press conference given by the Celta manager, Juan Carlos Unzue, and even snagged an exclusive interview with Tucu Hernandez and spent the run-up to the game with the former player Borja Oubiña!
This was just the start of a magical weekend, during which the city of Vigo gave the 12 guests the time of their lives. The local media, such as Faro de Vigo and TVG, the Galician television channel, devoted special segments to the LaLiga Santander Experience and its twelve guests from Hong Kong. Additionally, they all had the chance to get to know the history of the region, its culture, food and its people, enjoying the emblematic streets and the Spanish tradition of Epiphany.
However, without a shadow of a doubt, the icing on the cake was the clash between Celta and Madrid. A four-goal thriller had the fans on the edge of their seats and showed them just how passionate LaLiga is.
Next weekend the LaLiga Santander Experience sets sail for San Sebastian for the game between Real Sociedad and FC Barcelona at Anoeta. Don't miss it!© LaLiga - Year 2018
