The YFS Big Christmas Giveaway 2013

Written by
The YFS Big Christmas Giveaway is back for 2013. Youth Football Scotland has teamed up with a fantastic set of partners covering the length and breadth of the country, to give no less than THIRTY lucky winners the chance to score a wonderstrike of a present. And the best bit is, by entering once you can enter the draw for every single prize.
Entry to the competition is completely free of charge, all that we ask is you fill out a quick survey (those who do not take it seriously will be disqualified). The reason we ask you to do this is because Youth Football Scotland is funded by advertising (making it free to the players, coaches and parents). In order to keep our services free of charge, it is important we know who our audience is. Don't worry - your details will not be shared with anyone, only used to create statistics. You have until 7pm on Friday 20th December to enter. One entry per person - no limit on entries per family.
