Coaches Box competition winner email


“Words really can’t describe how fantastic it was, to sit there and watch the game, with the club that I am a member at was magic. To hear and see what goes on match day in the box was a rare opportunity and I know how lucky I am that I got to do this, all thanks to your fantastic prize that you put up.”

At Sportsbet.com.au, we love sport but our punters love it even more. The passion, devotion and commitment people have for their favourite, team or sport is truly remarkable.

Recently, we organised a competition for a lucky fan to win a place in the coaches box for an AFL game. The response was incredible.

Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and that was Gavin Male.

So touched by his response we felt we’d publish his letter on the blog… and by the way, we’ll be running another Coaches Box prize in the near future!

Dear Sportsbet,

Your Coaches box prize was the most unbelievable experience I have ever had in sport!!!

Words really can’t describe how fantastic it was, to sit there and watch the game, with the club that I am a member at was magic. To hear and see what goes on match day in the box was a rare opportunity and I know how lucky I am that I got to do this, all thanks to your fantastic prize that you put up.

The accommodation was also top class and Collingwood made me feel so welcome and the sponsorship staff were fantastic in helping me out where it was needed!!!

Once again a big thanks to Sportsbet for putting up this amazing, once in a lifetime opportunity that I was very fortunate to win, a night of football I will not forget in a hurry!!!

I can’t thank you enough for this prize, it was magnificent and words will really never cover the emotional impact it had on me, again a big thanks for putting this prize up

Yours,
Gavin

Crikey. We thought he was going to propose while reading that, but in fairness we were quite touched by his email and glad he had a good time.

Just to remind you again – we’ll have another competition next week and you could be the next lucky sod to sit in the coaches box at the MCG!
