Rank Group’s Grosvenorsport.com has signed up England and West Ham footballing legend Sir Geoff Hurst as its new brand ambassador.
Hurst, who famously scored a hat-trick in the 1966 World Cup final, has been brought in by the operator to help launch its free-to-play Grosvenor Goals game during the 2018/19 season.
He will provide weekly picks, blogs, and other content as a brand ambassador for Grosvenor Goals, which gives customers the chance to win £1m if their 10 chosen players are all first goal scorers in a given game week.
The game will be running throughout the 2018/19 season and will also offer £10,000 to any player that predicts 10 anytime goal scorers from their selections, with a £10 free bet to those who successfully pick three or more first scorers each week.
Should Hurst select four or more first goal scorers in a game week, all customers who play Grosvenor Goals that week will win a £10 free bet.
“As one of England’s greatest ever goal scorers, we’re delighted to announce the signing of Sir Geoff Hurst as a brand ambassador for Grosvenor Goals,” said Steve Munns, head of sport at Grosvenorsport.com. “Sir Geoff certainly knew where the back of the net was as a player – and let’s hope he’s just as shrewd when picking which players will score each week.
“With a top prize of £1m to be won each week, we hope fans up and down the country will follow Sir Geoff’s lead and pick their Grosvenor Goals scorers for a chance to win.”
Hurst added: “I’m delighted to front Grosvenorsport.com’s Grosvenor Goals campaign, where I’ll be putting my goalscoring knowledge to the test each week. With rewards given out every time I get at least four out of ten right, let’s hope I can win Grosvenor Goals users a good few free bets across the season.”
