100 Days to go and World Cup Fever Hits Glasgow at Slumdog!

With less than 100 days to go, World Cup fever has already hit Glasgow. Although it will be winter in South Africa, punters watching the World Cup games in one of the VIP boxes in Slumdog Bar and Kitchen will no doubt feel the heat as they consume there spicy curries, down pints of lager and do business at the same time.

Unlike the world cup tickets themselves, the VIP boxes are being snapped up by businesses and some of the more popular games are already filling fast.

Curry King Charan Gill MBE has kicked-off a unique new networking opportunity centred on the 2010 World Cup Finals at Slumdog, his restaurant on Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street. The entrepreneurial restaurateur has created two free private VIP boxes where networkers can entertain their guests and mingle over a fantastic game of football whilst enjoying some superb Indian cuisine.

Mr Gill said, “If there’s two things Glaswegians love it’s curry and football. Now our VIP boxes bring both these loves together under the one roof for the first time in a unique networking and corporate entertainment package based around the biggest and best sporting event ever – the World Cup Finals.

Each of the VIP boxes can accommodate 20 guests and networkers are invited to choose which football game their guests would most likely enjoy, with menu prices varying according to the time of kick-off.

The price of a banquet for all games played Monday to Friday at 12.30pm and 3.00pm are only £15.95 per person; weekend and evening games are £24.95pp whilst the semi-finals and final are £29.95.

 “But they better book fast because, unlike the tickets for the World Cup itself in South Africa, companies are snapping up this unique opportunity to treat their guests to the biggest and best football in the world at Slumdog!”

The 2010 World Cup Finals kick off in South Africa on Friday 11th June and run through to the final on Sunday 11th July. Slumdog is located at 410 Sauchiehall Street. Log onto www.slumdogbarandkitchen.com for more details or telephone 0141 333 9933.
