Sky Bet Launch £250K Football League Transfer Fund
Mon 4th Aug 2014 | Marketing & PR
Sky Bet, Title Sponsor of The Football League, have launched the Sky Bet Transfer Fund, which gives one fan the chance to win £250,000 for their Football League club.
The prize money will be available for the club to spend on new players in the January transfer window – and the individual will collect a cash prize of £5,000.
Fans who bet with Sky Bet will earn a token for every pound they spend, putting them in with a chance of winning the £250,000 Transfer Fund for their club in a draw in December 2014.
New and existing Sky Bet customers are eligible to win the Sky Bet Transfer Fund by simply linking their account to the Football League club they support.
Sky Bet Transfer Fund Ambassador Jim White, said, “The Sky Bet Transfer Fund is a great opportunity for a Football League club fan to make a real difference to the finances at his or her club.”
The Football League’s Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said, "This is a fantastic initiative from Sky Bet that gives those supporters that enjoy a bet the opportunity to earn funds for their club in the process.
"It also gives one fan the chance to win a potentially season changing prize for his or her club.
“The Football League and its clubs welcome the opportunity to work with a responsible, properly regulated bookmaker such as Sky Bet who are making a significant investment into our competition.”
Sky Bet Head of Sponsorship Edwin Martin, added, “We know that Football League fans do a huge amount to support their clubs.
“But for those who like to have a flutter on the football, a simple change to their betting routine could result in a huge cash boost in time for the January transfer window.”
