Have a beer on Emirates FA Cup partners Budweiser

Friday 17 Feb 2017
There were jubilant scenes when Sutton United beat Leeds in round four

As two non-league teams reach the fifth round for the first time since the competition was reformed in 1925, Budweiser – the official beer of The Emirates FA Cup – will be toasting the nation’s football fans by giving them a free beer to celebrate.

Budweiser is inviting the country to get together and toast the fifth round with their first Bud on the house. Those who are aged 18 years and over can watch these historic fixtures play out in Budweiser’s partner pubs and bars, where they will receive one free Budweiser over the course of fifth-round weekend.

To take part in the celebration, fans aged 18 and over should do the following:  

  • Visit celebratewithbud.com and submit their details to claim their free Budweiser voucher via email
  • Show the email on their smart phone to redeem a free Budweiser at the following Mitchells & Butlers pubs: Sizzling Pubs, Sizzling Pub & Grills and O'Neills, plus selected other pubs
  • Redeem the voucher at these outlets from 12pm on Saturday 18 February up until midnight on Monday 20 February

To further mark this year’s unforgettable Emirates FA Cup campaign, Budweiser will also be creating limited-edition packaging for its 330ml bottles. A limited batch of Bud bottles will be redesigned to hero Sutton United and Lincoln City, with their team names taking centre stage on each bottle.

The limited-edition bottles will be delivered to each of the teams to celebrate their historic achievements in this year’s Emirates FA Cup, and just in time for them to raise a special Budweiser to the fifth round. 

Budweiser’s support for the underdogs in this year’s Emirates FA Cup kicked off earlier in January with more than 10,000 beers being dropped by helicopter to Plymouth Argyle, to celebrate the team’s third-round draw at Liverpool.
