See what happened when an England Legend popped in on Lidl’s Father’s Day Competition

Community Manager

Hi Lidlers,


In May, Lidl held a competition online asking you to nominate your Dad and let us know why he deserved a Lidl Father’s Day Surprise.


After a host of great entries, our winner was Ian, a father of 2 daughters and 2 foster children who is also a long time football fan.


So we sent England football legend Emile Heskey (along with loads of Lidl goodies) to watch the Scotland v England game with Ian and his family.


Check out the video below to see Ian’s reaction!



Best Wishes,


My Lidl Team


It did look to be as much as a surprise as I expected, possibly he knew someone was visiting. Methinks you should do a competition for footie mad mums too. My daughter is a life long Everton  and England fan, she loves watching the games and goes when she can manage it. Her favourite player was, and always will be Bob Latchford, whom she first saw at the tender age of four, nearly forty two years ago. 


Oops, that should say "didn't look to be as much a surprise" etc. 😃
