On one of her offs from presenting the IPL in UK, Shonali watched the Champions League final between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich and by the end of it she was pleasantly overwhelmed.
“It was my first football game and what a game it was! The Champions League Final and that too in the hallowed Wembley stadium. The atmosphere surrounded by 90,000 plus German fans was out of this world.
They were so passionate that none of them stopped singing even for a minute during the game,” says Shonali. “I was told by a lot of people to sell my two tickets which on match day were worth 15,000 pounds each, but I’m glad I held onto them to soak in the experience.”
