Stonegate Hosts Sky Sports ‘The Swing Low Pub Show’ Show Ahead of Autumn Internationals

The Minories, a Stonegate pub in Tower Hill, will be welcoming rugby legends and World Cup winners Will Greenwood, Sean Fitzpatrick, Maggie Alphonsi and Michael Lynagh to the pub on Thursday 1st November as they join Sky Sports presenters Alex Payne and Rupert Cox on the Sky Sports ‘The Swing Low Pub Show’ ahead of the Autumn Internationals.

The show will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Action from 8pm-9.30pm and streamed live on Sky Sports social channels including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and on Sky – Europe’s number one commercial sports site.  Sharing their passion for the sport, the Stonegate team will be inviting 100 of their customers, via their social channels, to attend the live broadcast.

Gus Williamson, Head of Rugby at Sky Sports said; “The Autumn Internationals are a much-anticipated highlight in the rugby calendar and even more so this year with England playing the All Blacks at Twickenham for the first time in four years.  Our decision to broadcast ‘The Swing Low Pub Show’ at The Minories taps into that excitement and it’s great to be able to bring the panel of World Cup winners to the show and to the customers of Stonegate.

David Rey, Managing Director at Sky Business said; “Our customers are at the heart of everything that we do, and we are continually looking at ways to bring our amazing sporting content to life.  By working in partnership with Stonegate, we want to create a unique experience for their customers, bringing them closer to the heart of the action.”

Simon Longbottom, CEO Stonegate Pub Company said, “Our passion for sport and great sporting occasions enables us to bring each occasion alive and offer our customers the best in sports delivery and sports service. Hosting icons such as Will, Sean, Maggie and Michael brings our customers closer to their hero’s as we continue to create memorable sporting occasions in our pubs.”
