Community Shield: New Coral punters can choose outcome at enhanced odds

Football is finally back after its summer break and, to celebrate the traditional English league curtain raiser the Community Shield, Coral offer new customers a choice of outcomes and enhanced odds.

Sign up and register for an online account with us, staking £5 on one of three outcomes in 90 minutes that your prefer.

If it’s reigning and defending Premier League champions Chelsea you fancy for a Wembley win, there’s a boosted price of 8/1. That means a fiver investment will result in £40 profit if Jose Mourinho’s men can repeat their 2005 Community Shield victory over Arsenal.

There are plenty of attacking weapons, not forgetting the best defence from last season, available to the Blues boss, which now include a selection dilemma for the lone striker spot.

Chelsea’s loan capture of Radamel Falcao means Brazilian-born Spain frontman Diego Costa could see his place come under threat, despite his excellent form in their Premier League and Capital One Cup double winning campaign last term.

Belgium sensation Eden Hazard and Spain playmaker Cesc Fabregas also have goals and guile respectively in abundance, with the latter out to thwart his former club the Gunners here.

Alternatively, if it’s Arsenal you fancy odds of 9/1 are very tempting indeed. Your £5 stake will return £50 at that price and Arsene Wenger’s men are FA Cup holders.

The Gunners have poached Chelsea keeper Petr Cech from across the capital to strengthen their backline. In their attack are England trio Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck, plus France forward Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil – a World Cup winner with Germany.

You can even back a draw in 90 minutes at 10/1, meaning there’s £50 profit in the offing should Arsenal and Chelsea be taken to penalties.

Even if your chosen outcome doesn’t come off, Coral will compensate you with a £20 free bet which can be used across our mobile and digital platforms. You can’t lose, so sign up with us and take advantage of our Community Shield choice offer.
