The Finishing Touch has partnered with London's Urban Golf centres to offer corporate clients exclusive hire of the three venues during the 2010 World Cup.

The agency has signed a deal which will offer corporate clients the opportunity hire the centres - situated in Soho, Smithfield and, later this year, in Kensington - for exclusive events that will combine virtual golf with the screening of matches.

The Finishing Touch will manage the package that will include canapés, unlimited drinks and entertainment including match screenings and rounds of virtual golf before and after the game. The Kensington venue, which opens later this year, has a conference centre, which will also be available for larger events.

The agency claims to have received numerous enquiries for the England games. Clients will have the option of hiring the venue exclusively or sharing it with smaller groups. All three centres will be available from 6pm until 11pm.

Finishing Touch account manager David Taylor said: "Our aim is to offer clients something more intimate and exclusive than the usual packed screenings of football games across pubs and bars in London. We have already had expressions of interest from numerous clients in the city of London."

The deal follows a partnership announced between The Finishing Touch and East End venue Troxy last month to offer World Cup Screenings.
