Retail store GAME are offering season-ticket holders around the country the chance to trade in their tickets for a copy of a new football game.
Retail shop GAME are offering Premier League fans a unique opportunity this weekend; Trade in your season ticket and they will let you take home a brand new copy of either FIFA 14, Pro Evolution Soccer or Football Manager 2014.
For all the Manchester United fans screaming at the TV last night, this is your chance to prove you can do a better job than David Moyes. Arsenal fans, is it time for Arsene Wenger to leave? You could become the new boss at the Emirates and show him how it’s done.
It’s all a bit of fun, but is it worth trading in your season-ticket at this stage of the season for a new computer game?
The proposed Season Ticket Trade-in begins on Saturday at 5pm, straight after the final whistles have blown across games around the country. Participating stores are located in London, Cardiff, West Bromich, Sunderland, Edinburgh and of course the short walk from Old Trafford in Manchester.
Manchester United have the chance to recover from last night’s defeat to rivals City when they welcome Aston Villa to Old Trafford on Saturday, but would a defeat to Paul Lambert’s men convince fans to give up on the season and opt for a copy of FIFA instead?
After Saturday’s game, there are only three home league games left this season; Norwich, Sunderland and Hull City, not exactly the most glamorous of ties, but will it be enough to convince fans that they should give it up this season, it’s drastic, but another poor performance on Saturday might convince a few United fans to take up the offer.
Over at Cardiff City there are three home games left after Saturday’s away trip to West Brom – Crystal Palace, Stoke and Chelsea – despite their hatred of Vincent Tan, it would be a surprise to see many fans of the Welsh team miss out on the relegation battle against Palace or the visit of Eden Hazard and the Chelsea side.
Opening the deal at 5pm on Saturday leaves fans at the mercy of their emotion, a poor performance could see fans take up the opportunity, they could later regret.
With eight weeks left in the Premier League, would you trade in your season ticket for a copy of a new game?
