With the men's FIFA World Cup now under way, Greene King is offering a free drink in honour of the Wales and England national team.

This means that if you share your surname with any of the 50 British players involved in this year's tournament in Qatar, you could bag yourself a freebie.

Lucky punters with the same last name will be offered a free pint or bottle of Ice Breaker Pale Ale, or a soft drink alternative, during the home nations matches during the group stages of the tournament.

That means people sharing the same surname will be able to claim a free drink during the matches on Monday, November 21, Friday, November 25, and Tuesday, November 29.

To claim the free drink, all customers have to do is show their photo ID at the bar during the matches.

Every England and Wales group stage fixture will be shown live across over 800 Greene King sports pubs nationwide. 

Chris Conchie, head of marketing for Greene King sport, said: “Any international football tournament is a major event for fans, and since the success of the Lionesses earlier this year, all eyes are on the men’s teams this winter. 

“This limited time offer is more than just a free drink, it’s a chance for us, as your home of pub sport, to provide the best environment for people to come and show their support right across the UK for our England and Wales stars as they pursue glory at the highest level of international football.”
