Opportunity for Forest and County exiles

The Football League is launching a campaign where fans from overseas will have the chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to watch their team.

The competition is called ‘Stand Up and Be Counted’ and the prize will include match ticket to their team’s game, flights and accommodation, all free of charge.

Fans have the opportunity to win just by registering with the website and selecting their country and city of residence.

In a statement released by the Football League, Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey said: “Our 72 Football League clubs are at the very heart of their communities, but there are also passionate fans all around the world who follow their team each week.”

This campaign marks the first time the League has run a dedicated campaign to engage overseas fans.
