Thank you, thank you and thank you for all your entries, but this competition is now CLOSED.
It turns out it wasn’t as difficult as I had predicted and I got plenty of correct answers. The answer was the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy, home of Lazio, Roma and more recently, Italian rugby.
The name drawn out of my hat belongs to Gijs Smeets and he wins a Free €25 Bet.
The next competition is already underway and you can chance your arm here.
I recently had a few days off and some time to do what I love most – travel around Europe taking random photos of football grounds for use in Paddy Power Blog competitions.
In honour of Euro 2012 and travelling to the great economic basket-case that is continental Europe, we’re casting our eyes abroad for a series of competitions.
Each day up to the start of the tournament in Polkraine, we’ll post a picture of a random stadium from somewhere in Europe.
Using your cunning, guile and any clues you can decipher from the picture, you need to tell us the name of the stadium.
Apart from being really difficult, it’s actually quite simple.
It’s day three and again I think it’s an easy one. But I would say that because I used to have a stall outside the ground selling Snickers bars and Twirls.
Send your answer to email@example.com with or without the subject line ‘donde esta la biblioteca?’ Don’t put your answers in the comments section below because if you happen to be right, you’ll be giving everyone else the right answer.
It’s one guess per person, I’m afraid and if there’s no winner, the prize will roll over to the next day. If there’s more than one correct answer, then it’s all about my hat of ‘competition ending jeopardy’ and the winner will be drawn at random.
There’s a £/€25 Free Bet up for grabs and before you start saying ‘that’s way tighter than normal’, you’re right, but we are going to be running competitions each day. It may be a smaller prize, but you’re going to have more chances to win over the course of the next few days. Swings and Free Bet roundabouts.
Get your answers in before 10am tomorrow (Friday, June 1) and I’ll announce the winner soon after.
