Pub hours - big welcome for World Cup changes in Wales


Commenting on today’s move by the Government to help Welsh pubs with extra hours for the World Cup, just as they have in England, Brigid Simmonds, BBPA Chief Executive, said:

“It’s great news that the Government has taken action to ensure pubs and pubgoers in Wales will now find it easier to enjoy the England games in pubs throughout Wales.

“Wherever you are, when it comes to enjoying the huge excitement of the World Cup, only being at the game itself can compare with being in the pub.”
