With the new football season coming up, we're after any ideas for promotions or competitions which TGT would possibly be able to sponsor or at the very least help facilitate/set up. If anyone has any ideas for promotions - primarily for the start / duration of the new football season but not necessarily just about football - then please let us know on this thread.
As you know quite often people want to do their own promotion/competition and that has worked fantastically in the past (I think all the way back to the original 'Jono's Challenge', zipping forward to joeyboyuk's Footy Blackjack and the latest great idea of sliphod's to do 2-team combo bets for football sweepstakes). If anyone has a great idea and they want to give it a go, let us know here or in private if you want and we will do everything we can to make it happen.
With your ideas, bear in mind that if it's got a good 'hook' to it (ie it's something that would appeal to sponsors) then there's a good chance we might be able to raise a sponsorship deal for it and enhance the size of the prizes involved (ie so you're not just after a chance of winning the pool of money that all the entrants has chipped in like with the sweepstakes we usually do). But really any ideas are good!
And also if you want to run the promotion yourself then that's great - a lot of good promos in the past have been run by members of the forum. The only 'issue' is that TGT must hold any entrance money that is put in by individuals on the forum and pay the prize money out (we've had problems with this in the past were individuals have legged it with funds so since then any money changing hands must be done via TGT unfortunately).
Even if you don't have any killer ideas about new promotions / competitions, please let us know which promotions/competitions/sweepstakes you've enjoyed taking part in in the past so we can think about what kind of thing to bring you in future.
My personal favourite from a long time back now *as a competitor* was the trading challenge - I say 'as a competitor' because it was a nightmare to adminster/organize because of the difficulty in actually 'judging' who won what and why! But it was great fun taking part though.
Other competitions we've had that I've enjoyed - some of the sweepstakes are quite fun although admittedly some are more popular/suitable than others, the football blackjack was also good fun as well I thought.
Anyway... that's my favourites... let us know what you think, if you have a killer idea for a competition then let us know, otherwise just let us know what competitions/promos you've enjoyed in the past.
