It's not just football fans travelling to France who stand to spend a small fortune during the Euro 2016 tournament. Whether you are trying to complete a football sticker book, planning to get your mates round to watch a game, or going for a kick-about in the park, you can expect to end up forking out extra because of the tournament. Fortunately, there are some freebies and bargains around that will make the experience far less painful.
New members of Topcashback.co.uk can get themselves a new football - up to the value of £10 - from Sports Direct, and reclaim every penny through cash back. All you have to do is sign up, find the deal online, buy the football, and then get your money back. The deal runs until Sunday 19th June.
Bargain football stickers
The users of HotUKdeals.com have spotted that Groupon is currently offering a great deal on Euro 2016 Panini Stickers. You can pick up 100 packs for £39.98 - with free delivery. Given that they usually cost 50p each, that's a decent saving. And if you don't need another 500 stickers to complete your album, you can always arrange to buy the box with your friends so you all make a saving.
Free tickets to the fanDome
Hyundai is running a FanDome in Kings Cross, London, during the tournament. It will screen 45 games - with 360 degree screens that react to the action - and are described as 'a unique immersive audio-visual experience'. Tickets are free, but have to be booked in advance. All those for England games have been snapped up already, but if you are happy to watch a less well-supported team, then you can still pick up tickets.
Unsurprisingly, a number of supermarkets are offering beer deals. Both Asda and Morrisons are selling three cases for £20, which in most cases is just less than two thirds of the original price. If you buy through Topcashback, you could get them at Asda, and as long as you top up the spending to £25, you can get £8.80 cashback.
Cashback on kit
If you couldn't imagine getting through the tournament in the wrong kit, you can stock up on Euro 2016 products at JD sports, and if you buy it through Topcashback, you can get 11% off.
