Football comes closer to you - get the new season's action on 3

August 4 2003

3 UK, the video mobile network, today announced that it is offering football fans the chance to follow three months of the new Barclaycard Premiership season for free on their video mobiles. As well as all of the video action fans will also get their football news, audio bulletins and score alerts free for three months.

3's exclusive promotion allows customers to follow all the key action from the Barclaycard Premiership, for three months at no cost. The offer is available to customers who sign up before 30th September on the highly competitive VideoTalk price plans. This includes VideoTalk 500 and VideoTalk 750, which give customers savings of as much as 50% on their monthly charge, on plans with comparable amounts of voice calls.

3's ground-breaking sports service launched in March this year is a popular choice for customers who want the latest action delivered to the palm of their hand. Videosport on 3 gives customers the flexibility to enjoy the action when they're out and about, whatever they are doing, so there's no need to describe that great goal to mates in the pub, they can just show them on the video mobile.

Gareth Jones, COO, 3 UK said: "Football has always been at the heart of 3's video mobile sports service and there is no doubt that 3 is now the home of mobile football. So when the first whistle of the new season blows in a few weeks time, 3 will be there ensuring that Premier League fans have access to all the action on their video mobiles. This offer is exclusive to 3 and celebrates the start of the new season, if people want to watch goal highlights on the bus or in the pub, 3 is the place to do it. 3 brings football closer to you and we will continue shaking up the mobile market by giving customers a better deal on making voice calls."

Graeme Oxby, Marketing Director, 3 UK said: "With our price plans, VideoTalk 500 and VideoTalk 750, 3 is already giving customers the best value in the UK market and this new and exclusive offer of Barclaycard premiership highlights ensures our customers have access to all the excitement of the world's leading league competition. We promised that 3 would upset the status quo in the UK mobile market to give customers a better deal and we are honouring that commitment. 3 brings football closer to you."
