Video: England Fans Offered Chance to Swap English Bank Notes For Scottish This Weekend

Ever get sick and tired of having your Scottish bank notes ridiculed or scoffed at when you travel down south? Well, Tennents are looking to level the playing field when English football fans descend on Glasgow this weekend.

Around 5,000 England supporters are expected to make the journey to Hampden Park for the crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier against Gordon Strachan’s side but, for once, the shoe will be on the other foot when it comes to hard currency.

As any Scot who spends any sort of significant time in England, particularly the south, it can be difficult to pay for things with Scottish notes in certain places, and you’re often required to switch your perfectly legal, legitimate and valid cash for an English version.

But Tennents have had enough, and as you can see in the video below, are ready to get their own back with their very own currency exchange:

The exchange will be live on Buchanan Street on Saturday 9am-1pm and outside Hampden Park 3pm-5pm.

Well played, lads. It’s long overdue!
