|Jewell, John 2016. Come on Wales - outrage over Mars support for England football team is storm in a tea-break. The Conversation 2016 (31 May)|
Welsh football fans are up in arms. They are calling for a boycott of Mars bars after claims that the confectionery super company has “snubbed” Wales and its fans by flaunting its support for England in the forthcoming European championships. The problem is that for Euro 2016 Mars has pledged allegiance to the England team to the exclusion of Northern Ireland and Wales – who have, remember, qualified for their first major tournament since 1958. Welsh fans protest that themed Mars bars are offensive to the sensibilities of football fans across the country. On Twitter there were some calling for the removal of said bars from Welsh stores.
