The Continental ball cannon in Basel's UEFA EURO 2008™ Fan Zone has been a big hit, with operator Gunnar Pause saying: "We are busy non-stop."

Deceptively skilful
Young and old, big and small, want to line up and blast the cannon balls against the Conti goal wall at the promotional stand set up by UEFA EURO 2008™ sponsors Continental. Indeed, repeat visits are common, since it takes plenty of practice to shoot the balls into the small openings on the goal wall. Prizes are on offer for those who master the skill, with each scorer winning a Continental key chain, a baseball cap or a pin.
