Football fans get a pitch-side seat at Yotel Edinburgh for live podcast event

Posted: 18th February 2020

February 2020, Edinburgh, UKYOTEL Edinburgh is ensuring Scottish sports fans hit the back of the net with their football knowledge as it plays host to one of the country’s leading podcasts.

The innovative hotel team is inviting fans of the game to join them for a live episode of top Scottish football podcast, The Terrace.

The event is the latest in YOTEL Edinburgh’s series of inspiring free events, aptly named YO-TELLs, that showcase a variety of the smartest, interesting and most fun thinkers in Scotland.

Hosted by radio and sports presenter, Barrie Wilkins, the event will give sports fans the opportunity to hear insights from the leading sports pundits as they share their take on Scotland’s current football landscape.

Craig Fowler Host at The Terrace, said: “We first launched The Terrace way back in 2007 and since then, we’ve seen fans turning more and more to podcasts as a way of keeping up to date with the latest news from the pitch.

“We’re always looking for ways we can think out of the box with The Terrace and hosting a live discussion in the stunning Imaginex events space at YOTEL Edinburgh seemed like a great way to do something a bit different and engage with our listeners.”

Stuart Douglas, General Manager at YOTEL Edinburgh, said: “Edinburgh is a city full of football lovers and we’re thrilled to be hosting a panel discussion with the team behind The Terrace – some of the most influential voices in the Scottish football scene.”

“The event follows the sell-out success of our first YO-TELLs event where we welcomed some of the city’s top influencers to share their tips on how to build a social media presence. This next event will be another opportunity to provide a unique experience – this time offering guests an evening of all things sport.”

The event will take place on Thursday 5 March at 7pm in Imaginex, the hotel’s 360-degree projection space, which offers a unique opportunity for film screenings, social events, product launches and more.

Tickets are free and guests will also be able to enjoy a Steak & Ale pie with the choice of either a Caledonian Coast to Coast IPA or Strongbow Cloudy Apple Cider for £5.50.
