So when England kicks off their campaign against France at 5pm this afternoon, workers are being encouraged to watch the match at work rather than leave early.
Asda has seen a rise in the sale of cheap TVs, which they have put down to employers trying to keep their workers on site for the games.
A 19-inch LCD TV can be picked up at Asda for as little as £98, while the larger 32-inch model goes for £177.
Commuters are likely to experience a change this afternoon with many staying later in the city because of the game.
“The rush hour chase for a seat is likely to be in the office,” said Michael Arnott, Asda’s TV expert. “We’ve seen brisk trade in affordable TVs this week and anecdotally we’re hearing that many of these TVs are headed for offices.”
“It’s a great opportunity to bond with workmates around the TV. With prices this low, you can pick up a TV for the office for not much more than a few rounds of drinks.”
