Two weeks ago we ran a competition for every Paddy Power customer with Liverpool set as their favourite team on our Team Pages.
The prize was an opportunity to meet some real live, still playing, Liverpool players at the club’s training ground Melwood. It didn’t stop there because the players would also be trying to win prizes for the fans in our completely original competition Eye On The Prize. Some quality prizes were there to be won using their well-honed footy skills. Or twatting the ball really hard and hoping for the best. We’re not good enough to tell the difference.
Liverpool FC kindly gave us Stewart Downing, Brad Jones and Jose Enrique for an hour. The players were shooting for:
– Flat Screen TV
– Liverpool Beats Headphones
– Signed Shirt and 2013/14 opening home game match tickets
– LFC Retro top
– LFC Subbutteo
– Framed LFC European Cups picture
– Steven Gerrard signed autobiography
– Jamie Carragher canvas
The catch was that if the players hit and damaged the prizes, the fans had to take those prizes home whatever condition they were in. Seeing as this is a Paddy Power video the chances of something getting broken were particularly high. In fact they were pretty much guaranteed. You’ll have to watch the video to find out.
Our thanks go to LFC for allowing us to do this and a massive thanks to the players who made a big effort for the fans. A good time was had by all. Except myself and Aidan who had to spend several hours picking up bits of broken glass after everyone else had gone home.
Don’t forget to set your team pages to your favourite team so you don’t miss out when we do a competition for the fans of your club.
