The Red Lioness pub has been opened by Greene King and BT Sport, aiming to inspire pubs, bars, clubs and hotels nationwide to show more women’s football and help create support for the game.
Usually known as The Red Lion, the City of London pub has been remodelled to celebrate and showcase the storylines, personalities and milestones of women’s football. For the next 10 days, the venue will celebrate and promote women’s football, featuring memorabilia from WSL clubs, iconic photography of legends of the game and trophies.
The pub is one of 750 Greene King venues to sign up to a new BT Sport pledge aimed at increasing the profile of women’s football. The Red Lioness Pledge asks pubs and clubs around the UK to commit to screening all women’s football matches live, from the FA WSL through to internationals featuring England’s Lionesses, as well as creating inclusive and welcoming environments for women’s football fans.
