Nothing accompanies a warm summers day quite like a bottle of Football Special. Beach football, street football and football on the green all share three things in common; their importance, jumpers for goalposts and McDaids Football Special. Since 1949 McDaids have been developing soft drinks to go with any occasion. Football Special was originally born to help celebrate the numerous successes of local football club, Swilly Rovers. The drink called ‘Football Cup’ was designed to ‘fill the cup’ with an exciting non-alcoholic beverage. Later the name was changed to Football Special but the unique taste stayed the same.
