    It turned out they were VW/Euro 2020 promotional shirts but there was far more prominence for the sponsor than the tournament.

    Who wears that kind of thing, especially to an actual match?
    I sincerely hope that you were wearing your WSC Euro t-shirt.

    Thus the first timer/employee suggestion

    Definitely a sophisticated consumer of corporate hospitality, nor a Londoner

    I did ponder that and thought they might have been to a pre-match VW jolly where they picked them up:

    Still, who would do such a thing? I've enjoyed plenty of corporate hospitality in my time and never felt the need to carry advertising for them in return.

    There was a few stories I read about TikTok helping people work out they were ADHD based on the algorithms (more from tracking what they watched).

    It is more data as targeted advertising for tiktok I believe.

    What is an Antchain, and will it make any meaningful difference to my life to know what said company is?
