Fans emulate their heroes with Sportingbet

On Tuesday, 16 Spurs fans were lucky enough to have a once in lifetime experience of playing on the hallowed turf of White Hart Lane thanks to the club’s online gambling and betting partner Sportingbet.

The winners won the chance to spend the afternoon at White Hart Lane thanks to the Sportingbet Spurs Zone. They got a behind-the-scenes look at the famous stadium before going head-to-head on the pitch against a Sportingbet XI to battle it out for the all important Sportingbet Spurs Zone trophy!

The match saw the winners see the season off in style as part of the ‘Play at White Hart Lane’ prize open to fans at www.spurszone.co.uk and only days after Spurs finished their season impressively at the ground with a 2-1 win over Birmingham.

For many of the fans it was their first taste of what their heroes get to experience week in, week out, and they’ll be sure to cherish the moment for a long time to come!

Claiming home advantage were Rob Stait, Paul Ridd and Wayne Branson among others, as the winners took to the plush home dressing room and donned the famous white and blue strip. They gelled quickly and took an early lead thanks to a beautifully netted goal by James Vincent before the Sportingbet side fought back to edge a close game 4-2, with a penalty save proving a turning point. Both teams shared food, drink and a trophy presentation after the match, before taking home their kits as a memento of the day. Well played all!

The Spurs Zone is Sportingbet’s free fan club that gives supporters the opportunity to get closer to the club by winning money-can’t-buy prizes at www.spurszone.co.uk. Next season will see even more prizes available on the Sportingbet Spurs Zone. All winners are selected at random!

The Sportingbet Spurs Zone launched in January with Ossie Ardiles. Since its inception, Sportingbet has brought fans closer to other legends Pat Jennings and Martin Chivers, and face-to-face with present heroes including Tom Huddlestone, Michael Dawson and Sandro.
