Make Euro 2016 memorable with Coral’s super sweepstake kit
Jamie Clark, Sports Editor | June 9, 2016
Want to make Euro 2016 really interesting at work, down the pub or at home with family and friends? Coral can once again oblige with our special sweepstake kit.
This is a quick and easy way to ensure the Euros are extra fun. Download our kit now, which contains the names of all 24 competing nations on tickets at the tournament.
Simply cut these out, then draw them out of a hat, tombola machine, or whatever method takes your fancy. We recommend charging €/£1 per ticket, but you’re free to decide how much they’re worth, giving you control over this form of novelty betting.
Following our recommendations, if you draw the winning nation, we suggest awarding €/£12 for first place, €/£6 for the runner-up and, because there’s no third-place play-off at Euro 2016, equal €/£3 prizes for the two beaten semi-finalists.
What could be simpler? All you need to do is find 24 friends, family or colleagues to take part! Alternatively, there’s no harm in selling more than one ticket to an individual.
The Euros are being played in their expanded format for the first time, with the number of competing countries increased from 16. That means more matches to watch, and more opportunities for teams to qualify for the knockout phase that now has an extra round.
Hosts France could be a hot ticket because of magnificent midfield and exciting attacking options, with West Ham United star Dimitri Payet among them. There’s Premier League players aplenty on Les Bleus’ roster, including national and Spurs skipper Hugo Lloris in goal.
Drawing World Cup winners Germany could pay off as they invariably give an excellent account of themselves at major tournaments, reaching the last four or better at every event since 2006.
