Flutter Entertainment UK and Ireland President Ian Proctor and CEO Conor Grant walk past Paddy Power stores on Tuesday.
The pair spent the day supporting their retail partners and welcoming customers betting on the final leg of the Euro 2020 group.
Grant visited the Paddy Power store in Headrow, Leeds, while Proctor was based in King’s Cross, London.
During their visits, store managers briefed executives about COVID-19 safety measures such as QR check-in, Perspex screens and hand sanitizers.
Company leaders also spent their time disinfecting all machines and customer touch points.
Once the properties were cleared and officials briefed on protocol, they went after the cashier and served customers in the England v Czech Republic and Scotland v Croatia games.
