Fancy Knocking Out Some Football Legends at Paddy Power?
Football and poker collide this Sunday at Paddy Power Poker in the Legends of Football tournament.
Paddy Power Poker hosts the Legends of Football event this Sunday at 8:00 p.m. BST and it’s definitely a tournament you need to add to this Sunday'a schedule. On the surface it looks like a typical €11 buy-in Progressive Knockout tournament, but simply scratching the surface reveals it’s more. Much more.
Firstly, the Irish gaming giant boosts the prize pool by adding €1,000 in cold, hard cash. If that wasn’t enough, Paddy Power throws 10x €100 special bounties on the heads of former football stars! Bust one of these soccer stars and you win a €100 cash prize! You’ve seen them on the TV, you cheered and jeered them on the pitch, now take them on at the poker table!
Lock horns with the former West Ham United, Manchester United, Inter Milan, and England midfielder Paul Ince. Battle in the box with Teddy Sheringham, the scorer of more than 360 career goals.
Stop Arsenal’s “Romford Pele” Ray Parlour from jinxing his way into the money place, and outwit defenders Wes Brown, John O’Shea, and Michael Ball. You’ll even come across the legend that is Norman Whiteside, midfield maestros Charlie Adam and Darren Fletcher, plus former Republic of Ireland winger Stephen Hunt and Denmark’s Peter Lovernkrands.
Here’s the full list of bounty-laden footballers, and their aliases, for you to track down and send to the showers.
