KUALA LUMPUR: The Star Euro 2004 Special Edition, which is being distributed free at selected locations in the country in conjunction with the European Nations Cup championship in Portugal, is proving to be a hit. 

Copies of the edition were handed out at selected distribution centres in the Klang Valley and Penang until July 5.  

People, who gathered for the Penchala Tunnel Run here yesterday, had a pleasant surprise when they were given free copies of the edition. 

Participants of the run and the weekend crowd at Plaza Mont Kiara here, where the run ended, snapped up hundreds of copies within minutes. 

Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Isa Samad, who flagged off the race, and Sunrise Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Michael Yam were among those seen reading the edition, which featured the latest information on Euro 2004 including results. 

Soccer fan Azmi Talib said the 16-page edition, with accompanying pictures in colour, made good reading. 

He said he could afford to miss some early morning matches as he could now get the results from the free special edition. 

Isa, a Manchester United fan, said he had not been able to watch the matches because of his hectic work schedule. 

In the northern region, some 20,000 copies of the edition were snapped up 

The distribution of the copies started at 9am at some 100 locations such as supermarkets, hypermarkets and petrol stations.  

Among the Penang locations were Bukit Jambul, Batu Ferringhi, Teluk Bahang, Air Itam, Pulau Tikus, Jalan Mesjid Negri and Bayan Lepas. 

In Seberang Jaya, copies were snapped up at Auto City in Juru, Carrefour and Megamal Pinang. In Ipoh, copies were given away at various public places including Super Kinta Department Store, 7-Eleven outlets, Popular and MPH bookstores, and the state road transport and immigration departments.
