Football League sponsor Sky Bet is giving fans the chance to win big cash for Pools to spend on new players and £5,000 for themselves!
Sky Bet, Title Sponsor of The Football League, are today launching the Sky Bet Transfer Fund, which gives one fan the chance to win £250,000 for their Football League club to spend on new players in the January transfer window – and collect an individual 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.
By switching from their current bookmaker and betting with Sky Bet, fans will give their club a better chance of collecting the £250,000 to boost its player-buying power in January.
Pools Chief Executive Russ Green said: “We want as many of our fans as possible to get involved in the Sky Bet Transfer Fund scheme.
“It’s a unique venture and just think how good it would feel if you won £5,000 and were also responsible for Colin Cooper having £250,000 to spend on players in the New Year!
“If you like to have a flutter then we’d urge as many of our fans as possible to use Sky Bet and link their account to Hartlepool United because the more of you who do it, the greater chance we will have of winning the prize.”
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.”
Sky Bet Head of Sponsorship Edwin Martin added: “This season, we wanted to give fans another reason for making us their favourite online bookmaker.
“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.”
