Live draw for £250,000 prize on 16 December
Huddersfield Town has made the final shortlist of 10 for the Sky Bet Transfer Fund, which will see one club given £250,000 for use in the January 2015 transfer window!
The Club has been named on the shortlist courtesy of Town supporter J Spurr, who placed a bet via Sky Bet and was selected at random in a draw yesterday.
The draw to select the winner of the Transfer Fund will take place live on Sky Sports News HQ from Wembley Stadium on the afternoon of Tuesday 16 December, when the Club could be given £250,000 and the fan could scoop a £5,000 prize!
The other clubs and fans competing for the fund in Tuesday’s draw are:
Tony Richards (Fulham)
Christopher Goodwin (Cardiff City)
Brenda Wall (Leeds United)
Jason Woods (Southend United)
Jay Dave (Watford)
Shaun Lander (Nottingham Forest)
Jason Worth (Exeter City)
Matthew Peat (Wigan Athletic)
Tom Howe (Leeds United)
These nine fans, alongside the Town fan, were selected at random from around 70,000 Sky Bet customers who took part in the Sky Bet Transfer Fund competition this season.
Tuesday’s draw will be hosted by Sky Sports News HQ presenters Jim White and Natalie Sawyer. Jim said:
“It is going to be really exciting to see one fan win £250,000 for his or her Football League club.
“You can only imagine how the chairman, manager and players of the winning club are going to react when they hear the news. And the lucky winning fan collects £5,000, so we are going to have a room full of extremely happy people.”
Sky Bet Head of Sponsorship Edwin Martin said:
“The £250,000 Transfer Fund has proven extremely popular with Football League fans up and down the country.
“Every fan that entered had a chance of making a huge difference to their club, and the second half of their season.
“And the Sky Bet Transfer Fund re-opens for business on Tuesday, so it’s not all over for fans that haven’t made our final ten this time. They will get another chance to win £5,000 for themselves and £250,000 for their club in the summer transfer window.”
The winning club will be able to spend the £250,000 prize on transfer fees and/or player wages.
