ONE MILLIONTH SUPPORTER EXPECTED THROUGH THE TURNSTILES
Thursday Apr 5, 2012
WILL YOU BE THE ONE IN A MILLION?
BLUE Square Bet Premier attendances will pass 1,000,000 for the season during Easter and a very special prize will be won to help celebrate.
League sponsor and leading online bookmaker Blue Square will award the millionth person through the turnstiles two tickets to the Blue Square Bet Premier Promotion Final on Sunday, May 20, 2012. They will watch the match from the Royal Box at Wembley Stadium, get first class train tickets to and from the game and enjoy a massive £500 free bet.
With all of the league's teams playing both home and away between Good Friday and Tuesday, April 10, the millionth person will walk through the gates this weekend and it could happen at any one of the division's 24 grounds.
Alan Alger, Blue Square Spokesman, comments: "More than 950,000 fans have come through the doors already this season and we know that we are going to hit the 1,000,000 mark over Easter. We wanted to give something back to the loyal fans to mark the occasion by offering them the chance to win a prize that money can't buy. We look forward to welcoming a very lucky winner and their guest to the Royal Box at Wembley next month."
Brian Lee, Chairman of the Football Conference, adds: "To reach a total attendance of 1,000,000 in the top division at this stage is a real achievement and it puts us on course for a record campaign. It shows how much the fans have been enjoying the fantastic football all our clubs have helped serve up this season and that the competition as a whole is very attractive and going from strength to strength."
Supporters attending a Blue Square Bet Premier game on April 6, 7, 9 or 10 have a chance of being the millionth fan. The millionth fan will be contacted by Blue Square via their club.
A season ticket holder would be contacted via records held at their club. In the event of a matchday ticket holder being the millionth fan, their ticket number will be published on http://www.bluesqfootball.com/, so ticket stubs should be retained.
The winner/winning ticket will be announced on Wednesday, April 11, 2012.
