A Manchester pub is giving punters the chance to get their hands on a free England football shirt. This is to get everyone in the mood for the Women’s FIFA World Cup which gets underway this week. 

The shirts will be available from The Deansgate Greene King pub as part of the company’s nationwide initiative. You will be in with a chance of winning a shirt if you head over to the pub and purchase a breakfast during the Lionesses match against Denmark.

Research from Greene King has shown that while 58% of Brits have started following a women’s sports team since the 2022 Lionesses victory, a third have never been to the pub to watch a women’s football game. The opportunity to get along and show your support is here for you to take. 

This fixture takes place on Friday July 28 and kicks off at 9.30am. This is the second of England’s group games with the first against Haiti taking place on July 22. 

Earlier this year Greene King announced its continued commitment to ensuring women’s sport gets the airtime it deserves, pledging to show all the games in the Women’s Super League for the 2023 season across many of its city centre pubs. With Manchester boasting two top women’s teams, fans can look forward to catching plenty of top football in the season ahead.  

Andrew Gallagher, Marketing Director for Greene King Pubs, said: “Our pubs have such an important role to play in major football tournaments; they provide a space for fans to show their support and come together as a community.

 “It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing England colours from head to toe, or if you’re just looking to back the Lionesses with your friends while you watch the match – our pubs are inclusive spaces for everyone during the upcoming tournament.”
