The special edition Cymru bottle will go to the Welsh football team

Anheuser-Busch InBev's UK unit has said it will give everyone over the age of 18 who lives in Wales a free Budweiser today, as it looks to capitalise on the success of the Welsh football team at Euro 2016.

The firm said it would give away "potentially millions" of bottles of beer. Wales will face Portugal in tonight's Euro 2016 semi-final. 

AB InBev said one of Budweiser's largest production sites is in Magor, Wales. 

"At Budweiser, we're all about celebrating epic moments like this," said Steph Okell, marketing manager for Budweiser UK. "We're proud to have one of our biggest breweries based in Wales, and even prouder to be able to celebrate the passion and commitment of all the Welsh fans out there by raising a Bud for them today."

Beer vouchers can be obtains via local newspapers, train station giveaways and a dedicated website: freebudforeveryoneinwales.com

In addition to the giveaway, the company has produced limited-edition 660ml Budweiser bottles, re-labelled to say 'Cymru' ('Wales' in Welsh). The bottles will be delivered to Wales manager Chris Coleman and his team. 

Carlsberg is the official beer sponsor of Euro 2016.
