No vouchers or downloads required, just say the words ‘Your home of pub sport’ to the bar staff any time of the Friday and you’ll be served a refreshing pint to watch the game at your favorite local.
Pints are limited to one per person – and those who don’t drink can get a Coke or Coke Zero instead.
The first match of the European Championship will be played on Friday at 8 p.m. British time in Rome between Turkey and Italy.
England’s first game is on Sunday at Wembley against Croatia, while Wales face Switzerland on Saturday and Scotland face the Czech Republic on Monday.
The passphrase is also featured exclusively in Greene King’s “24 Nations” video campaign featuring soccer heroes Jamie Redknapp, Ally McCoist and Ashley Williams – each representing the participating home countries in the competition.
The film shows fans arguing over who will win the tournament and looks back on legendary moments from previous years.
