Coral launches its biggest ever football trading offer

| 05.08.2014

Coral has launched its biggest ever football season trading offer on Tuesday – a guarantee to offer the top price on every team to win the top four divisions in England, the top two Scottish leagues and the big four European leagues (Serie A, La Liga, Ligue 1 and Bundesliga).

As of 8.00am on Tuesday, 5th August, Coral is guaranteeing to match or better the top price on every team across these ten leagues versus the eight major online bookmakers in the UK – William Hill, Bet365, Paddy Power, Ladbrokes, Betvictor, Skybet, Betfair Sportsbook and Betfred.

This top price guarantee will be available to online, mobile and telephone customers, but also to Coral shop customers who have (or sign up for in their local shop) a “Coral Connect” card, the new multi-channel account launched by Coral earlier in the year.

“This is the biggest and the best football trading offer we’ve ever done and we are this morning bracing ourselves for an explosion in ante post betting activity. This is always the time of year when thousands of punters across Britain place their ante post multiple bets across the various domestic and European leagues hoping to turn a few quid into a life changing sum of money. This massive top price give-away offer should ensure that many of these customers come to Coral”, said Simon Clare, Coral Spokesman.

“Our intention is to hold this top price guarantee for as long as possible, certainly for many hours and hopefully days, and it is only the fact that we have no idea how big a deal this offer will prove to be that prevents us from committing to a guaranteed length of time”, added Clare.

“The World Cup is always a major catalyst for creating even greater interest in, and betting on, football and we are already seeing record levels of ante post betting on the upcoming season. We are very keen to start the new season with a bang and this trading offer is a very big bang indeed for customers of Coral”, concluded Clare.

Coral Pre-Football Season Trading Offer:

From 8am on Tuesday 5th August, Coral will guarantee to offer the top ante post price (clear top price or joint top price) on every team to win the following leagues (English Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two, Scottish Premier, Scottish Championship, Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga, Ligue 1) compared to the following online bookmakers – William Hill, Ladbrokes, Betfred, Betvictor, Bet365, Betfair Sportsbook, Skybet, Paddy Power.

This top price guarantee will be available online, on mobile and via telephone, and to Coral shop customers with a “Coral Connect” multi-channel account.
