Licensing laws will be relaxed across the country during the World Cup for England games that start at 8pm or later.
On England match days, pubs can stay open for 4 hours after kick-off until 1am at the latest.
if kick off is at 8pm, pubs can open until midnight (or later with a TEN)
if kick off is at 9pm, pubs can take advantage of the 1am extension
if kick off is after 9pm, pubs can still only open until 1am as a maximum
if it isn’t an England game, there is no extension of closing time and pubs can only trade beyond normal hours if they have submitted a valid TEN
