An estimated 13.6 million barbeques will take place in homes this Saturday, with 50 million burgers, bangers and steaks served up by the time Gareth Southgate’s England team kick off at 8pm, according to supermarket Aldi’s research.
The survey, carried out as part of Aldi’s Raising The Barbeque campaign, also found that two million football mad Brits will celebrate the quarter-final with a barbeque, even if it’s raining, as England raise the steaks against Ukraine.
Helping with the surge in demand, Aldi is today launching a range of fresh meat barbeque specials – with no Kiev in sight – just in time for the hotly anticipated sporting occasion.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, says: “This weekend, we expect sales – and goals – to soar as the country celebrates a monumental moment in history.
“Whatever the outcome of the match, we’re delighted to be a part of the celebrations, providing the best value barbeque products for what we hope is a banger of a day. Let’s hope the England team leads us to victory and many more barbeques to come.”
Aldi will be launching an a-bun-dance of barbeque goodies on shelves today, so shoppers can stock up in time for the big day, including Specially Selected British Wagyu Burgers (£3.29, 2 pack), Specially Selected Pork, Bacon & Maple Sausages (£1.99, 6 pack), The Best Ever Burger with Tasty Burger Sauce Melt (£2.99, 2 pack) and British Rump Steaks (£8.99, 4 pack).
Shoppers looking to up their grill skills should head to the Raising The Barbeque hub for recipes, hints and tips: www.aldi.co.uk/summer-bbq.

Notes to editors:
Mortar Research polled 2,006 respondents on the 9th April 2021 as part of Aldi’s barbeque study.
Aldi has reported bumper bubbly sales so far this Summer thanks to soaring temperatures and Jubilee celebrations. The supermarket’s best-selling Castellore Prosecco Spumante DOC (£6.25, 75cl) saw its highest day of sales EVER in June, with an incredible one bottle flying off the shelf every second!
Aldi’s Specialbuys Summer Sale has just got even better with more products added, and now you can even shop the sale from your local middle aisle. Just popping in for a loaf of bread? Now you can also take bargain trampolines, tents and garden must-haves to the check out and make the most of savings with up to 50% off. Bargain hunters will need to be quick though, as with all Specialbuys once they’re gone, they’re gone.
