How to win a free England shirt at these two Leeds pubs

You can win yourself a free England shirt at two beloved pubs in Leeds to celebrate the 2023 Women’s World Cup.

A select number of Greene King pubs are giving away a limited number of England women’s shirts to celebrate the start of the tournament and the Lionesses getting underway.

The two Leeds-based boozers taking part in the campaign are none other than two Headingley favourites in the Skyrack and Woodies Craft Ale House, and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning a shirt is order a breakfast. Yes, that’s really it.

You could literally start the Otley Run with a hearty brekkie and then set off dressed as an England player — easy. As reported by our friends over at The Manc, it’s happening all over the country and Yorkshire’s lucky enough to boast two participating pubs.

This isn’t the first time the popular pub chain and brewery has had promotions like this in the past, giving away a handful of England shirts during the men’s World Cup last year too, but now they’re turning their attention to the women’s game.

Sarina Wiegman and the girls kick off their first match against Haiti on Saturday, 22 July, but it’s their game against Denmark the following Friday that you need to come along for to stand a chance of copping a free kit.

England play Denmark on Friday, 28 July and if you are among the first people to rock up to either of these pubs in time to order a breakfast, you could be one of the lucky few who receive a free Lionesses shirt. That’s it, you just have to treat yourself to some early morning grub. Happy days.

There are 300 free shirts to be given away across the 30 different locations (i.e. 10 in each pub), so you stand a fairly decent chance of grabbing one. Better still, if you happen to opt for the Skyrack, they’ve got plenty on throughout the day too.

    In case you were unaware, these things are worth £80, so you’d be getting your hands on quite an expensive bit of kit — quite literally.

    Greene King isn’t just giving away free England kits for no reason, of course; the promotion is part of a campaign to increase viewership around the women’s game — something they have been championing for years now.

    National research by the pub chain and brewery revealed that while 58% of Brits have started following a women’s sports team since the Lionesses’ incredible Euro 2022 victory last summer, but a third admitted they have never been to the pub to watch a women’s football game.

    Moreover, two-thirds of those surveyed believe there is a lack of awareness and support for women’s sports teams compared to male teams but 73% said that watching England’s women’s team last year has helped increase exposure around it. We can’t imagine how massive it would be for women’s football if they won the Women’s World Cup too.

    The first game between host nation New Zealand and Norway at 8am on Thursday and the Lionesses kick off this weekend. Come on girls, let’s bring it home — again.
