Guinness Targets Rugby Fans with MatchPint Offer

GuinnessPub finder app MatchPint has teamed up with Guinness to give away free pints to sports fans during the Rugby World Cup.

MatchPint enables fans to find a nearby pub showing their chosen sports fixture. Under this offer, users who check in at one of the 1,5000 participating UK pubs between 12-10pm on a match day will receive a buy-one-get-one-free voucher code they can show to the bartender when ordering.

“We’re thrilled to be giving rugby fans the chance to treat a mate to a free pint throughout one of the biggest sporting events in the world this autumn”, commented Leo MacLehose, founder and CEO of MatchPint. “Watching rugby in a pub with a bunch of mates really is a social highlight. Doing so with a free Guinness in hand makes the match that bit better.”

The offer launched with the start of the Rugby World Cup last Friday, and MatchPint reports that the campaign saw 4,500 redemptions over the weekend.
