As a month of international football kicks off, support for Gareth Southgate’s team is now firmly on the map as a street in Oxford has been renamed ‘Southgate Street’ and a shopping centre has been temporarily rebranded ‘Southgate Oxford’.

The activity is happening at Westgate Oxford, which will be known as ‘Southgate Oxford’ for the duration of the tournament.

‘Southgate Street’ in the city centre has been given the temporary moniker in support of England, allowing fans to grab a street sign selfie during The Euros which takes place in June and July.

Brendan Hattam, Centre Director at ‘Southgate Oxford’, said: “We are sending our best wishes to the England team for this tournament and hoping we can push ahead and make it further than we did in the 2016 Euros.

“And if England do lift the trophy, we might have to make some more permanent street renaming changes here at the shopping centre – here’s hoping.”

Additionally, Westgate Social will be showing all Euro matches and their brands, Ned’s Noodles, Benito’s and Tommi’s Burger Joint are running special deals to help football fans celebrate.

Benito’s will be offering a special hat-trick themed taco deal throughout the tournament, alongside 2-for-1 on all beers and cocktails during matches.

Ned’s Noodle Bar are offering a regular noodle box and beer for £10, and fans can find a cheeseburger and a pint for £10 on all match days at Tommi’s Burger Joint.

‘Southgate Street’ is located at Leiden Square within the centre – fans can grab a selfie of the new street sign for the duration of The Euros which ends on Sunday 11 July.
