Travis Perkins kicks off footie competition for customers

Published:  10 June, 2014

Travis Perkins has launched its first ‘Fantasy Football Game’.

From 12 June until 13 July 2014, account customers can compete against other customers and the staff at their local branch, gaining points for their performance. The highest point-scorer will be crowned the ultimate winner and receive the top prize of a five-night, VIP trip to Barcelona to meet the Barcelona team with £1,000 spending money.

Second prize is a VIP tour of Wembley, and the third-place winner will scoop two tickets to a Premier League game of their choice.

Mark Bocking, branch manager of Travis Perkins Northampton, said: “I’m going to be entering my own dream team to see if I can earn more points than my customers – I think it’s going to make the World Cup even more gripping, whatever happens to England!

“I’m looking forward to seeing who thinks they can do a better job than Roy Hodgson and how the staff point table compares to the customer-only league table – hopefully some great local rivalries will develop.”

Entrants need to sign up by 12 June, so their team is in place before the first match kicks off. Sign up at with your account number and business address postcode.
