A NATIONAL pub chain with venues in Northwich and Winsford is offering a free drink in return for showing support for the women’s football team at the World Cup final.

Greene King is running a scheme ‘inviting the nation to show support for the women’s team this weekend’.

England will play Spain in the World Cup final on Sunday morning, the first World Cup final for an England football team since 1966, and the first in England Women’s history.

Fans can qualify for a complimentary beer, cider, wine, spirit, or soft drink by wearing England colours, kit, or face paint.

The offer will be live between 11am - when the game kicks off - and 2pm on Sunday, August 20.

Michelle West, head of sport marketing for Greene King, said, “The team has performed incredibly over the course of the tournament, and we’re so excited for the final against Spain this Sunday. 

“This is the first time any England football team has been in a World Cup final since 1966 so we want to throw the ultimate celebration in all of our 900+ Sport pubs. 

“We’re asking fans to head to their local Greene King Sport pub and show their colours in support of the team, literally – all you need to do is wear England colours, kit or face paint and you can grab yourself a free drink.

 “This is a fantastic opportunity to get behind the team and continue to boost the profile of women’s sport in the UK, so join us for the ultimate party this weekend.”
