To celebrate the highly anticipated third season of Ted Lasso, loveable pub owner Mae, played by Annette Badland, is hosting three stays at The Crown & Anchor pub, in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products.

Ted Lasso’s endearing charm, glimmering positivity and endless inspirational quotes have captured hearts and minds around the world. 

To celebrate the show's triumphant return to the small screen on March 15, Mae, the loveable pub owner and passionate AFC Richmond superfan played by Annette Badland, is hosting three stays at The Crown & Anchor pub, which is The Prince’s Head in real-life, and is taking a much-deserved night off.

Situated in Richmond, London, and right around the corner from Ted’s apartment, the traditional English pub is a gathering place for football fans and locals alike, and the unofficial meeting place of AFC Richmond players and coaches on the show.

“The Crown & Anchor is an essential fixture for AFC Richmond - it’s where friends, colleagues and teammates come together to celebrate our triumphs or cope with the agony of relegation,” said host Mae. “That’s why I’m pleased to host guests (and take the night off!). Time to give others the opportunity to experience the same camaraderie and sense of community that Coach Lasso inspires. After all, we’re Richmond ‘til we die!”

Guests will experience what it’s like to stay overnight at the historic, neighbourhood pub for the first time, while putting themselves in the shoes of AFC Richmond coaches, players and pesky bar flies alike.

About the stay

While it may not be a locker room, the pub still smells like potential - for up to 4 guests who will have the opportunity to stay overnight on October 23, 24 and 25, 2023. For only £11* ($20 AUD) a night – a nod to the number of players on the pitch - guests will be able to request to book three individual one-night stays, during which they’ll get to channel their inner coach (or pub owner), including:


  • Enjoying pub fare from The Prince’s Head while discussing their favourite moments from the show.
  • Cheering on the beloved local Richmond spots teams, decked out in AFC Richmond gear, of course.
  • Taking part in a competitive round of darts - whether left- or right-handed - or aiming for the highest score on the pinball machine.
  • Taking a seat at Ted’s favourite table in the pub and challenging their fellow guests to a round of chess.
  • Showing off their karaoke skills with a rendition of their favourite song.
  • Trying those biscuits and enjoying them over some English tea (or as Ted calls it “garbage water”).
