Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur supporters can score a free pint in London tonight if they go along to take in Champions League action at Scandinavian-themed bar Nordic. The eyes of the footballing world turn to the European competition this evening with games across the continent, including the visit of FC Copenhagen to Old Trafford to take on Erik ten Hag's Manchester United side.
On paper, the Red Devils are favourite to bag three points in the Group Stage but the side's opening two defeats to Bayern Munich and Galatasaray will give the Danish club cause for hope. It's that optimism that will fill the newly reopened Fitzrovia bar Nordic on Tuesday night as the club gets behind Copenhagen from the capital - and rivals of Manchester United are invited to wish the club misfortune too.
The bar will be giving away a free pint to the first fifty fans who rock up tonight in the jersey of a Manchester United rival in a mark of solidarity with underdogs FC Copenhagen. Thor, General Manager for Nordic, said: “We’re definitely hoping for another bad United game, but it’s all in the spirit of some good banter. The next time Arsenal are up against Midtjylland, we’ll be praying for the Gunners to lose instead!”
Nordic serves up a Scandinavian-themed menu and puts a focus on supporting Nordic teams whenever they are playing. Only FC Copenhagen are left from that part of the world in the Champions League but Norwegian side Molde and Swedish club Hacken are both in the same Europa League group. The bar is also showing international clashes including Finland vs Northern Ireland on November 17 and Norway vs Scotland on November 19.
As well as free pints for rivals tonight, Nordic will celebrate every goal that goes in against Manchester United with 10 shots to be given out from the 'Wheel of Misfortune'.
Thor continued: “We’re really proud of our Nordic heritage. The vibe of the bar is all about bringing a little taste of home to London. Whether that’s the food we serve or the teams we support, you won’t find us shouting for an English team over the boys from back home.”
