The boozer did the same thing for the Euro 2020 final to show support to the England boss and his players in their match against Italy.
Steph Armstrong, Pub Manager, said: “The Brewery wanted to support England and people love it, they come to take photos outside.
“We’ve got flags outside the pub, decorations throughout, and t-shirts made for staff.
“There’s a sweep going around the bar too – we just want to create an amazing atmosphere for people.”
The pub, at the heart of Stockport Town Centre, will be offering four bottles of beer for £10 throughout this month and a double Bombay Sapphire with tonic will go for £6.
The sign will remain up throughout the competition and the manager did not rule out leaving it forever.
This comes after The Chestergate/Southgate went viral on Facebook last month for being the “best pub on earth.”
Steph previously told MEN: “There’s quite a lot of regulars here, they’re just a really lovely bunch.
