Welcome to another set of winners’ stories! I’ve got football on the brain this week with Brighton & Hove Albion getting promoted to the Premier League – and my team Birmingham City getting a new boss! – so here’s a set of sporty stories for you…
Victoria‘s son got the chance of a lifetime thanks to MasterCard…
“I saw a link to Mastercard competitions on SuperLucky and decided to enter the Priceless Mascots prize draw. I couldn’t believe it when I got the call, my seven year old son was over the moon! He got to meet Barcelona football club (a dream come true). It was an amazing experience that we will remember forever!”
Hayley‘s daughter won the chance to be a ballgirl at Wembley!
“Probably my best win last year was for my daughter to be a ballgirl at Wembley for Tottenham Hotspur which went down very well with my hubby as he is a massive Spurs fan and got to go to the match!”
Kath won the chance to meet Gareth Bale:
“In August I won a pair of tickets to watch the Welsh football team in training with an opportunity for a meet and greet. This was in Cardiff – my husband and I bit the bullet and took the nine hour round trip. It was SOOOO worth it! We got to meet all the team afterwards (including Gareth Bale!) I got a t-shirt and a cap signed by everyone and then donated the cap to my kids’ school to raise funds for the PTA!”
Rachel was one of the many prize-winners in the Walkers Champions League ‘winning moments’ promotion at the start of 2016…
“I won 2 tickets to the Champions League quarter finals in Wolfsburg, Germany including £600 for travel and accommodation. We also managed to organise it so we got to spend quite a lot of time in Berlin!”
Anne won a super prize with a goal celebration video…
“The win I am most pleased with this year came from a CostCutter Competition, held during the Euros. You had to post a video of a “goal celebration”. My 14 year old son is mad about Arsenal and also plays in a local team, so I thought he would be more than happy to help. Not at all! In the end, all I could get him to do was take the video, while I made a complete fool of myself running down the garden and kicking the ball into the goal!”
“Needless to say, he was delighted when I actually won the competition, especially as the prize was a full squad kit! CostCutter were very accommodating, because the prize was for a total of 15 kits, value £500, but we actually have 17 players. They added 2 extra kits which was very kind of them and meant nobody was left out. This was definitely my most useful prize of the year and probably the most satisfying to win.”
I loved reading these stories, as some of my own best prizes have been football related and I know what brilliant memories they can give you! I’ve won tickets to see my team Birmingham City beat Arsenal in the League Cup, a trip to see my husband play footy with Robert Pires and Tony Adams at the San Siro in Milan, and a VIP day at the Emirates with Ryland. Next on my wishlist is definitely one of the MasterCard Mascot prizes, now Ryland is finally old enough to enter!
