SCORED that perfect goal in fives but none of your friends were around to see it? Well now Tennent’s Lager are offering the chance for players to capture video highlights (and lowlights) on demand throughout their matches.
The new technology, called T5s, allows players to capture and upload the last 20 seconds of action by simply hitting one of four giant red buttons positioned on the sidelines. The images will then appear automatically, letting players review their performance - for better or worse - as soon as the final whistle blows via social media or the dedicated app.
This will mean that all players need to do to immortalise that amazing goal, comedy gaffe or cheeky nutmeg is to hit one of the red buttons.

Launching at Rouken Glen, East Kilbride and Ayr throughout February, players can save their own videos to their T5s profile pagem and create a personal playlist of their finest (and funniest) moments. An accompanyingT5s smartphone app will also make it easy for players to organise games, invite their mates and issue awards after games, from Man of the Match, to Best Goal, or Most Embarrassing Miss.
“T5s is set to make a game of fives with your pals a lot more interesting,”said Jane Cannon, Marketing Manager for Tennent’s Lager. “Tennent’s has had a long association with football – but the game has never seen anything like this before. We’re really excited to introduce it. Now, anyone that plays fives can get their very own highlights package and share it online too.
“We’re introducing it to three locations initially and we’d urge teams to book well in advance – we think it’s going to be really popular.”
