Bookmark

Pubs in England are expected to sell 13 million pints during the final of the Euro 2020 soccer championship on Sunday, the Guardian reported, citing industry data.

While the tournament has bolstered revenues in the hospitality sector, the revival from last year’s Covid-hit slump isn’t enough to shore up the beleaguered industry, the newspaper said.

With bars operating at 50% to 60% of normal capacity because of social distancing rules, sales will be far lower than they might otherwise have been, the Guardian said.

Almost 17 million pints would likely have been sold without Covid-related restrictions, it said, citing figures from the British Beer and Pub Association.
