Bitcoin competition across Southampton launched by Saints

SOUTHAMPTON residents are in with a chance of winning a Bitcoin as part of a Saints competition.

Those across the city could be in with the chance of winning a Bitcoin, which has been worth between £25k–35k in 2022, as part of a competition Southampton FC is announcing with its main club partner, Sportsbet.io.

This will be the first time a football club has given away a Bitcoin in a competition for fans.

The competition has launched today ahead of the Southampton vs. Norwich City match.

It will see participants aged 25 and over compete in three initial rounds, with three lucky winners from each round progressing into the live final which will take place at April’s home game against Crystal Palace.

Round one will see a series of QR Codes placed at hotspots throughout the city and at the stadium for fans to find between February 23 – March 14, alongside the opportunity to gather limited edition branded QR cards.

The QR codes will take participants to a virtual microsite to sign up for the competition.

As participants progress into round two, they will need to complete a blockchain-style puzzle using historical Southampton jerseys.

Round three will commence on Monday, April 4.

This round will involve answering a series of questions, whereby the correct answer entails the participant keeping an eager eye on the football club’s social media channels to find a hidden Bitcoin.

The official final will see Southampton Football Club welcome three winners from each round along with one ‘lucky-dip’ winner to St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday, April 30, to take part in the half-time live Bitcoin Hunt final.

The lucky dip winner will be chosen randomly from participants who have entered all three rounds.

The final Bitcoin Hunt winner will then be announced in front of a rapturous home crowd and crowned victor, taking home a Bitcoin, which so far in 2022 has been worth up to £35,000.

The club is calling on fans and local residents to participate in a new Bitcoin Hunt-style competition to celebrate its ongoing partnership with main partner Sportsbet.io.
