Wear your team’s rugby jersey and get a free drink at McGettigan’s

Rugby-mania has officially taken Dubai by storm as the 2019 edition of the Rugby World Cup is set to kick off this Friday (September 20).

Top bars and pubs across the city will be showing all the matches live from Japan but the Dubai World Trade Centre and Souk Madinat Jumeirah branches of the popular Irish pub chain McGettigan’s is giving rugger fans a rather awesome incentive to catch all the rugby action at their venues.

Both branches will be offering a free beverage to everyone wearing their country's rugby jersey during the matches, as well as extended happy hours to cover all the rugby games. But it doesn’t end there.

McGettigan’s is giving one lucky rugby fan the chance to win tickets to the Rugby World Cup final in Japan – including flights and accommodation.

Just purchase three drinks over three matches to enter (and enter as many times as you want) and the winner will be chosen on Sunday October 20.
