Welcoming Back Football with Themed Charity Scratch Cards!
Have you been missing all of your favourite sports? Has the lack of football left you feeling a bit down and out? Are you eagerly anticipating the return of the Premier League? If you have been missing your regular dose of sport, then you are in luck. Sports are starting back up this month and none too soon. To celebrate the Premier League kicking off again, The Health Lottery has launched new football-themed charity scratch cards: Football Gold.
Football and Other Sports Make a Comeback
Everyone is awaiting the return of their favourite sport, as each league or governing body determines the best way to safely allow competitors to return to the field. UK sports kicked back off on 6 June with the 2000 Guineas Stakes horse race at Newmarket Racecourse, and other sports are following.
Starting this week , the Premier League will be setting up their goals and getting ready to play! Even though the stadiums will be closed, fans will be able to watch all of their favourite players on free-to-air platforms. All players will still need to practice social distancing, but are excited to get back to the sports they know and love. The first two games to air will be Aston Villa hosting Sheffield United, followed by Manchester City vs. Arsenal. Players will not be required to wear masks, but will have to follow all proper social distancing and hand cleaning protocols. Each kit will also sport a heart shaped badge to pay tribute to all of the NHS frontline workers, and the first few games will feature a moment of silence for all of the victims of the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
Women’s sports are also in the process of making a comeback. Oliver Dowden, the culture secretary, was quoted as saying, “Visibility matters and our daughters deserve to see female athletes on the main stage.” He hopes to have good news soon for fans of female-led sports, and hopes to gain back some of the momentum that women’s athletics were achieving before the pandemic. Until then, women can get into the fun of sport by training, rooting for their favourite football teams, or by trying their hand at sports themed scratch cards.
The Rules of the Game
More than ever, charity lotto games are important for raising much needed funds for health organizations in local communities.
