Popular Tennent’s Football Glass is GAWA to a T 

A limited edition pint glass specially designed to show support for Norn Iron’s Green and White Army has become the hottest property in town.

The cool design from Tennent’s, the official beer of Northern Ireland football team, went into selected pubs and clubs just a few weeks ago, but has rapidly become a serious must-have, even sparking an under-the-counter online trade which has seen single glasses selling for up to £60!

The green and white glasses proudly carry the logo of the Irish Football Association and are cheerfully emblazoned with iconic dates in Norn Iron’s glorious footballing history as well as useful and inspirational words and phrases such as ‘Ou est le bar?’ and (of course!) ‘We’re not Brazil, we’re Norn Iron’. For the first time in its local history the famous red Tennent’s logo also appears in green in a unique gesture of GAWA solidarity.

The glass design was inspired by the success of the ‘Norn Iron to a T’ glass which captured some of our favourite local words and phrases to become the quirky collectable of 2015.  Spurred on by that success, Tennent’s own footie fans came up with the 2016 football tribute – but even they have amazed at the public response to their latest innovation.

Victoria Brown, Tennent’s Brand Manager from Tennent’s NI says, “We just knew people would love toasting their team with an iconic pint served in an iconic glass, but even we weren’t totally prepared for the enthusiasm of the Green and White Army. So many glasses have been snaffled by collectors that supplies are rapidly dwindling, but be reassured: this is a game of two halves and a massive second order has already been placed.  Loads more glasses are already in production and 25,000 will shortly be delivered to replenish stocks. Even better, we’ll also shortly be announcing details of a fabulous in-store retail glass-giveaway promotion as well as details how consumers will have a chance to win the limited edition Northern Ireland football glasses online.”

Amongst the proud owners of the limited edition Northern Ireland football glasses are the members of the Northern Ireland squad.
