Coca-Cola 'Buy a Player' is back

Coca-Cola today gives Blackpool fans the fantastic opportunity to increase their club`s transfer fund by launching a brand new on-pack promotion called 'Buy A Player`. With a £10M prize fund on offer, and one in every two packs guaranteed to win, Coca-Cola is hoping Blackpool fans get behind their team and start racking up their transfer fund.

From today, anyone buying a promotional bottle or multipack of Coca-Cola or Coke Zero will be in with a chance of winning a prize for Blackpool transfer fund. Prizes range from 50p all the way up to £100,000. The winners of the £100,000 prizes will also win a personal cash prize of £10,000.


Fans need to simply text in the unique code found on promotional bottles or multipacks to 80094 or enter it at Upon entering, Pool fans will find out instantly if they are winners of money for their club.

Everyone entering the Buy A Player promotion up until February 7th will also be automatically entered into a separate draw for £250,000. The winner will be announced live on Soccer AM on Saturday 10th February 2007.

Steve Cumming, Sponsorship Manager, Coca-Cola Great Britain said: "Buy A Player is our biggest football promotion to date and is set to strengthen our already highly credible association with football. 'Win A Player` was hugely successful but we have tried to make the 'Buy a Player` promotion bigger, better & even more exciting for football fans."

The launch of 'Buy A Player` follows on from two successful years of the Coca-Cola Win A Player promotion, which received over three million entries and saw fans from two South Coast clubs - Brighton and Southampton - win £250,000 for their respective clubs transfer kitties in 2005 and 2006.

Last year 'Win A Player` gave one main prize of £250K to Southampton fan Chantelle Legg, and two further prizes of £50K to Brentford fan Steven Hearn and Oxford fan Andy Perrin. This year`s promotion will ensure that Blackpool fans are now in with a chance to win something for their club.
