Our Football Fan of the Year competition is live

| 03.11.2020
CORAL ENHANCED ACCAS

With a top prize worth up to £10,000 up for grabs.

Do you know the nation’s biggest football fan? Or do you think you fit the bill? Submit your nomination for Football Fan of the Year – the winner will enjoy football experiences of their choice worth up to £10,000.

We’re scouting the nation for the most passionate football fan we can find. The local hero. The skipper of the stands. The supporter who goes above and beyond.

Got a mate who planned their honeymoon around a trip to Wembley to watch the cup final? Or do you know a local legend who put their heart and soul into keeping their club alive – against all the odds? Perhaps you know someone who hasn’t missed a game, home or away, in 30 years?

If you do – then we want to hear their story.

Each month, England and Newcastle legend Alan Shearer will select a winner to receive up to £1,000 to spend on football experiences of their choice.

At the end of the season, he’ll also choose from our monthly winners to pick the ultimate Football Fan of the Year who’ll win up to £10,000 in prizes to fuel their passion for the game.

Will they follow their country to the Euros next summer? Perhaps they’ll put it toward a box at their team’s stadium. Or even give it to a local club to keep their dream alive?​

It doesn’t matter how big or small the club you support is – whether you’re mad about Man Utd or obsessed with Oxford, we’re interested in the passion of fans, not the number of trophies in the cabinet.

So, think you or a mate fits the bill?

Then enter yourself or nominate someone you know at footballfanoftheyear.co.uk.
