Preston North End fans could help the club make a splash in the transfer market thanks to Sky Bet, title sponsor of the Football League.
They have launched 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 kitty for their club in a draw to be made in December.
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.
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.”
Sky’s Bet head of sponsorship Edwin Martin added: “This season, we wanted to give fans another reason for making us their favourite online bookmaker.”
