Keepy-uppy call for footballers

Online gaming site launches 888sport has launched a brand new competition, aimed at providing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an amateur footballer and his local team.

Celebrating the huge year for football that is 2014, entrants need to upload a 20-second video of themselves completing 14 keepy-ups in as skilled or creative a way as they wish.

All entries will be uploaded online to BetYouCan.com and people will then be able to vote for their winner. The top three videos will then go through to the final, where a celebrity judge will choose the winner.

The winner will receive an incredible set of prizes. They will have the opportunity to perform their routine at a professional football match next season in front of thousands of fans. Inclusive of this is full hospitality treatment for the game. The winner will also win a sponsorship package up to the value of £3,000 for either the team they play for, or a local team they would like to support.

The first 500 people to enter the competition will also receive a free £5 bet on 888sport.com. The competition is open to UK residents over the age of 18. The closing date for entries is July 13.
