Grosvenorsport.com has announced a legendary last minute signing, with Sir Geoff Hurst getting enlisted by the online bookmaker to help launch Grosvenor Goals for the 2018/19 season.
Hurst, who famously scored a hat-trick in the 1966 World Cup final, will be providing weekly picks, blogs, and other content as a brand ambassador for Grosvenor Goals, which gives users the chance to win £1m, if their 10 chosen players are all first goal scorers in a given game week.
Steve Munns, Head of Sport at Grosvenorsport.com, commented: “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.
“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 £1 million 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.”
The free-to-play game, which will be running throughout the 2018/19 season, will also offer £10k for anyone who predicts 10 anytime goal scorers from their selections, with a £10 free bet to those who successfully picks three or more first scorers each week.
The former World Cup winner will play his part too – if he selects four or more first goal scorers in a game week, all users who play Grosvenor Goals that week will win a £10 free bet.
Sir Geoff 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.”
