A Kenilworth pub will be pouring free pints during the World Cup - but only to customers who share a surname with a member of the men's England or Wales football squads.
Free pints will be available throughout the home nations' group stage games at over 800 Greene King pubs nationwide - including the Bear and Ragged Staff in Kenilworth.
Customers that share one of 50 surnames will be able to grab a free pint of bottle of Greene King's Ice Breaker Pale Ale or a soft drink during a live group game involving either home nation at the Warwick Road venue.
To claim the free drink, all customers have to do is show their photo ID at the bar of any participating pub.
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."
