Hit the cross bar at half time and win!

15 July 2019

Northampton Town have teamed up with Grosvenor Casino for a brand new half time competition.

The Cobblers, who were the EFL'S In-Stadium entertainment 2018/2019 award winner, are delighted to introduce the brand new half time Grosvenor Casino Cross Bar challenge competition, which will see supporters (aged over 18) try and hit the cross bar from the edge of the penalty area to win a £50 Grosvenor Casino food and drink voucher!

Supporters can enter by following the club @ntfc on Twitter, where a few days before each home league game, a tweet will be published with full details on how to take part.

Those chosen will then take to the field at half time and after a practice attempt, will have just one chance to hit the cross bar and win the £50 voucher!

The competition will debut at the Sheffield United pre-season fixture on Saturday July 20th, a match that Grosvenor Casino, Northampton are sponsoring, and the competition will open for entries a few days before that fixture.

"Our relationship with the Grosvenor Casino here in Northampton has grown and grown over the seasons with them also sponsoring the Grosvenor Casino 1897 Suite and now the Grosvenor Casino Cross Bar challenge competition," said Commercial Director Caroline Lucy.

"We are sure this new competition will generate lots of fun and entertainment at half time as we build on being awarded the best EFL club in the country for In-Stadium Entertainment 2018/19.”
