Spin to win online appearances with football legends

Spin to win against six England legends

spin the wheel and you could be playing against Paul Gascoigne, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, David Seaman, Emile Heskey or Ray Parlour

Sports fans can win unique, money-can’t-buy days out with England football greats as part of a brand new online series called A Different Ball Game.

To be in with a chance of taking part in the show, head to the website of A Different Ball Game’s sponsor Your Free Bet - the first bona fide comparison site capturing the sporting and casino sectors all in one convenient place - to spin the wheel and you could be playing against Paul Gascoigne, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, David Seaman, Emile Heskey or Ray Parlour at a different ball game (golf, table tennis, basketball, table football, pool or ten-pin bowling) for the show!

Presented by Radio 1’s DJ Spoony (himself a football fanatic), A Different Ball Game will air on brand new online streaming platform SYNCR Live (with a reach of some 450million) in February and March 2019 alongside other great content fresh from the entertainment world.

But first we need some lucky contestants and sports fans to take part – and that’s where you and Your Free Bet come in. Here’s how it works:

Sign up and spin the wheel at Your Free Bet and if it stops on a sport, fantastic news – you’re on your way to filming an episode of the show in January 2019 to play a sporting legend at that game. If you don't win, entrants will still get a welcome offer from one of Your Free Bet's partner sponsors.

If you are a sports winner, you then spin the wheel again to see which of the six legends you will be up against on A Different Ball Game. There will be four lucky finalists per show (that's 24 fans in total!) who will take part against the football star - with two semi-finals to determine an overall winner against the celebrity (following some expert coaching and tips from a celebrity trainer) and win a signed shirt as well.

Each episode of A Different Ball Game will be filmed in a different UK city. People who want to take part have until 1st January 2019 to spin the wheel and enter. Entrants can only have one spin per IP address, but if you share on Facebook or re-tweet via Twitter then you secure an extra spin and chance to win per platform.

Show creator Trevor Franklin says: “This is a uniquely interactive show format where sporting legends play against their fans, so we needed a game changing and visionary commercial partner too - and are both as well as being friendly, professional and innovative.”
