What's in a name ... a free drink at a King's Lynn pub during Euro 2022
If you share your surname with any of the England women's football squad taking part in the Euro 2022 championship then you will be able to claim a free drink at three local venues.
The offer by brewery Greene King applies to all its 810 pubs across the country, including the Gatehouse and the Orb and Sceptre (formerly the Deer's Leap), and the Henry IV in Fakenham.
On offer is a free pint, bottle of Ice Breaker Pale Ale or a soft drink alternative during the three group games, starting tomorrow.
Greene King says it is doing it to get the names of the England players better known after a survey showed 37 per cent of Britons admit they have never heard of any of the England Lionesses, whereas 87 per cent have heard of their male equivalents.
The names in the squad are Earps, Hampton, Roebuck, Bright, Bronze, Carter, Daly, Greenwood, Stokes, Wubben-Moy, Kirby, Scott, Stanway, Toone, Walsh, Williamson, England, Hemp, Kelly, Mead, Parris, Russo, or White. ID must be produced.
The three group games are tomorrow, England v Austria, next Monday, against Norway and on Friday, July 15, against Northern Ireland. All games kick-off at 8pm.
Chris Conchie, head of marketing for Greene King sport said: “Despite the fact that the Women’s Euros tournament grows in popularity each year, there is still a massive lack of awareness and support for the individuals who make up our incredible team.
“This limited time offer isn’t just about a free drink, it’s a chance to show support right across the UK for our Lionesses and champion the incredible UK talent on display on the world stage.”
