As the Tour de GAWA hits the road, Norn Iron footie fans are racing to show their support for the Green and White Army by raising a glass of Tennent’s, the Northern Ireland team’s official beer, served in this season’s must-have, the limited edition fan glass.

Boldly emblazoned with iconic dates in our glorious footballing history and carrying inspirational phrases such as ‘Dare to Dream’ and ‘We’re not Brazil, we’re Norn Iron’, the cool design from Tennent’s proudly features the logo of the Irish Football Association and celebrates the brand’s links with the new stadium at Windsor Park as well as its status as Official Beer to the national team. For the first time in local history the famous red Tennent’s logo also appears in green in a unique gesture of GAWA solidarity.

The limited edition glass was created as a follow up to the ‘Norn Iron to a T’ glass which captured some of our choicest colloquialisms to become the quirky collectable of 2015.  The 2016 glass went into selected pubs and clubs just a few weeks ago and instantly sparked a phenomenal response from lovers of the Beautiful Game, rapidly becoming an essential item of fan kit.

As demand for the glorious glass threatened to outstrip demand, Gemma Herdman, from Tennent’s NI, who brought the Norn Iron to a T glass and Limited Edition Football Glass to life, stepped in with an emergency re-order.

Ever on the ball, Tennent’s has partnered with Tesco to make sure those limited edition glasses get straight into the eager hands of local footie fans.  From Thursday 9th June, twenty-five selected Tesco stores will be offering a distinctively gift-boxed Limited Edition glass with every purchase of 15 or 20 packs of Tennent’s cans.  The full list of participating stores plus details of forthcoming competitions to win a glass will be available on www.facebook.com/Tennent’sLagerNI.

Gemma says, “It never does to under-estimate the enthusiasm of the Green and White Army!  We knew they’d love toasting their team with their favourite pint, served in an iconic glass, but even we were amazed by the response! Our glass celebrates the team and its achievements throughout the years and fans were quick to join our celebrations in snapping up the glasses…but football is, famously, a game of two halves and we know our second order will be an instant winner too. Fans across the country will soon be able to join members of the national squad as proud owners of our limited edition Northern Ireland football glasses.”
