No-one watches the World Cup in a Wetherspoons
You see, they don't usually show football, and during the World Cup, they've seen their sales weaken.
In a trading statement before its financial year ends on 27 July, Wetherspoon said: "Sales have been slightly weaker during the World Cup. Although sales have slowed in recent weeks, the company remains confident of a reasonable outcome in the current financial year."
Now here's a thing - Wetherspoon pubs have actually shown matches during the international football tournament, but fans have obviously not noticed. Maybe it would've been an idea to shout about it a bit more earlier on in proceedings, rather than waiting until there's bugger-all games left?
Shares have fallen a bit and the company have also decided to shut up shop a little earlier than usual.
They said the government's late-night levy, which allows councils to charge for the extra costs of policing late boozers had gone up by around £4,000 a year in various places.
"Wetherspoon has decided to reduce opening hours from the current 1am to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays at most of our affected pubs, as and when the levy is introduced or renewed - a retrograde step for pubs," Wetherspoon said.
