The Week That English Football Made Headlines

Lionesses' squad

#BeReady for The Lionesses 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

This week, the Lionesses’ squad was officially announced for the 2019 World Cup but in a slightly different way than normal…

A host of celebrities, from the likes of Prince William, David Beckham, Emma Watson and James Corden, all took to Twitter to show their admiration and support to the club by declaring a member of the 2019 team. Talk about keeping up with the times…

An teaser alluding to the news went live on the Lionesses Twitter account on Tuesday and a cascade of celebrity responses started pouring through on Wednesday.

It’s not just the women who made the headline – after three nights of incredible football, it has been declared that the Champions League Final will be Liverpool v Tottenham, while the Europa League Final will be Chelsea v Arsenal.

Jumping on this, for client Kiwi Frank pushed out helpful alternative flightpaths which you can read here!

Winnie the Pooh

Welcome, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduced Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world this week after.

The entire world was on pause whilst we *restlessly* waited to hear if our bets on his name were coming through and multiple brands jumped on a response. The most sentimental of these was from Disney, with a bespoke Winnie the Pooh animation welcoming Archie into the world.

The short animation depicts Winnie walking to Windsor to hand deliver a hand-wrapped present to Archie and shows the proud parents over-looking his cot.

The cartoon was the perfect response to the news and has been warming the hearts of the nation since it went live.

Fair play, Disney 👏

Carlsberg

HBO

C’mon HBO…

After the latest episode of Game of Thrones, fans were amazed to notice that a coffee cup had been left in shot during the opening scene. HBO… YOU HAD ONE JOB!

The show probably has the highest production level to date and a coffee cup somehow slipped the net. It’s not all too bad, social media went crazy following the episode and it wasn’t long before Starbucks jumped on the bandwagon tweeting about a so called “Dragon Drink.”

It has been estimated, Starbucks earned about $2.3 billion of FREE advertising from the hiccup and it wasn’t even a Starbucks cup!

Avengers: Endgame
