McDonald's Rolls Prices Back To 1996 Ahead Of England-Scotland Euro 2020 Match

McDonald's Rolls Prices Back To 1996 Ahead Of England-Scotland Euro 2020 Match

To celebrate today's Euro 2020 fixture between England and Scotland at Wembley, McDonald's is offering fans a chance to remember their last major tournament meeting by rolling prices on the menu all the way back to 1996.

Remember that? Well, many probably don't, but it was a great time.

Trainspotting was the big movie of the day, social media was just a glint in the eye of Mark Zuckerberg and his cronies, and England took on Scotland on a sun-kissed day beneath the twin towers of the old Wembley Stadium in Euro '96.

Without getting too 'back in my day' about it, things were certainly easier, and cheaper too.

With that in mind, McDonald's has decided to return to those halcyon days by reducing some of items on the menu back to 1996 prices.

That means that you can get a McMuffin for just 99p - although you'll really have to hurry up - and a Big Mac will set you back only £1.79.

That's a saving of a quid on the McMuffin, and £1.70 on the Big Mac.

The offer stands for one day only, meaning you'll have to take advantage today, but it's still a good excuse to treat yourself on Friday.

If nothing else, you can make sure you've eaten properly before getting stuck into it for today's main event.

On top of that, McDonald's are rolling back the years on their social media channels too, so expect to see loads of 1990s themed content on there today.

There is one 21st century element to all of this, however.

You'll need to download the MyMcDonald's app in order to take advantage of the time-travelling deals.

So, if you're eating inside the restaurant, just download the app and navigate to the deals section, where you'll find all of the information.

That also applies if you're in the drive-thru, but you can use the 'Click & Serve' service to get a contact-free order.

Place it on the app, then head on down to the local restaurant to have it brought straight to your car.

If you want to find out where the nearest McDonald's restaurant is to you, there's a restaurant locator that you can check out here which will furnish you with that vital information.

Let's not kid ourselves on though, everyone knows where their nearest McDOnald's is, don't they?

Whether you're cheering on the Three Lions or part of the Tartan Army, at least you can do so with some 1996-priced Maccies by your side.
