Footstock Signs Chris Kamara as Brand Ambassador for 2020/21 Season
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Footstock, the unique player trading and fantasy football platform, has signed the hugely popular ex-player and broadcaster Chris Kamara.

Footie legend ‘Kammy’ will front the brand for the 2020/21 season, with a range of marketing and PR activations planned to help boost Footstock’s awareness and UK customer base.

Kammy will voiceover Footstock’s upcoming debut national radio advertising campaign on talkSPORT. He will also share exclusive content and his own Footstock recommendations with his heavily-engaged 1.7m Twitter following.

Licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, Footstock has built its player pool exponentially since launching in April 2019.

Kammy said: “Ever since gaining my lucky break being spotted playing for the Royal Navy, I’ve always embraced life’s opportunities and working with Footstock is another exciting prospect.

“The game allows football followers to utilise their knowledge in a fun and responsible way. I can’t wait to test my competitive spirit on the platform and work with the Footstock team to entertain our loyal and growing userbase.”

The football betting app allows users to buy and sell player cards – stocks in Premier League stars – for real money, with the aim of locking in a profit.  A player’s real-life performances on the pitch improves their in-game stats on Footstock, dictating their price and scarcity accordingly. Lucky dip-style player packs are also available to buy, offering users the chance to win random players.

Once a collection of players has been assembled, a selection of games, including daily fantasy contests based on real-life fixtures and Stat Roulette, can be played to win prize pots and other user’s cards. New for the 2020/21 season, Footstock is offering a £100k free-to-enter fantasy contest.

James Copeland, Footstock CMO, said: “When we decided to bring in a brand ambassador for Footstock we had a shortlist featuring one name. We’re absolutely thrilled that Kammy wanted to join us too.

“As one of football’s most-loved presenters, there’s really no one else quite like Kammy. Whether he’s astutely analysing on the Goals on Sunday sofa or causing mayhem with his in-game reports, his thirst for the sport is unquenchable and his personality is a perfect fit for Footstock.”

Kammy has been integral to Sky Sports’ coverage for more than 20 years. The fan favourite’s versatile presenting style has seen him branch into mainstream TV and become a household name with appearances on shows ranging from Loose Women to Have I Got News for You to Emmerdale.

Having started out representing the Royal Navy, Kammy signed for Portsmouth in 1974 and played nearly 800 professional games. He was part of Leeds United’s 1989-90 second division-winning team and was a regular for Sheffield United and Middlesbrough in the top flight. After retiring he steered Bradford City from the third to the second tier as manager in 1996.
