With 37 per cent of Brits never having heard of any England women’s footballers, Greene King is aiming to raise awareness to any customers that have the same surname as a member of the England Women’s football team in the hope of increasing the Lionesses' popularity.
Anyone with the surname 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 can claim a free drink during the three group games by heading into a Greene King Sports site with their ID.
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.”
The free drink offer is part of Greene King's ongoing Festival of Sport. The company said it is "passionate" about bringing sport to its customers and also educating the nation on the names of the stars representing England at the highest level.
