With millions of people across the country planning parties, BBQ’s and get-togethers to watch the Euro 2020 Final on Sunday, Asda is offering shoppers great deals to help them celebrate at home.
“Colleagues who want to substitute a shift are able to organise this with their team and extra bangers, burgers and booze are being delivered to stores in anticipation for a sales surge.
“We’re prepared, the England boys are prepared, hopefully our customers are prepared – it’s coming home!”
For customers heading to the fresh pizza counter in Asda’s Bedminster store, customers may notice the pizzas have unusual football-inspired words on them.
In a tribute to the England team, the pizza team have spelt out the words ‘It’s coming home’ as well as a design of Harry Kane’s football shirt.
The tweet picked up more than 18,000 likes with customers excited for the game.
Deputy store manager Jason Mansell says colleagues are impressed and delighted to see them proving such a hit.
He said: “They’re amazing, and customers are coming in and asking to buy these individual pizza designs.
“The guys on the pizza counter asked how they could show their support for England, and came up with the idea of spelling out ‘It’s Coming Home’, making pepperoni pizzas in the shape of the St George’s flag.
“The feedback has been fantastic.”
Other customers were left asking on Twitter if this could be rolled out to all stores in celebration of the final.
Asda also has a huge range of BBQ food on offer as well as soft and alcoholic beverages.
