Competition: win tickets for Portsmouth v Birmingham in Carabao Cup
Carabao Energy Drink has teamed up with The News to give 10 lucky Pompey fans the chance to win a pair of tickets to the Blues’ League Cup clash with Birmingham on Tuesday, August 6.
Currently in its third year as the official title sponsor of the Carabao Cup, South-East Asian energy drink Carabao is continuing to give football fans across the nation the chance to see their team for free by giving away thousands of tickets.
Last year’s competition saw over 1.2 million people pass through the turnstiles at Carabao Cup fixtures and culminated in a showpiece Wembley final between Manchester City and Chelsea.
Round One of the Carabao Cup is always a great occasion for fans of EFL Clubs to see their team on a balmy summer’s evening and get an early glimpse of their latest signings.
Carabao Energy Drinks are great-tasting, fruity low sugar and no sugar drinks that provide an energy boost for everyone, specifically adults of all ages, to get them through their day.
Carabao has half the sugar of other leading energy drinks and comes in a range of flavours that taste just like soft drinks, such as Green Apple, Mandarin Orange, Original, Green Apple Sugar Free and Original Sugar Free.
Carabao is currently stocked in Asda, BP, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Spa, WHSmith, as well as a significant number of independent retailers.
To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets, simply answer the following question: Who scored Pompey’s only goal in last season’s Carabao Cup during their first-round 2-1 defeat against AFC Wimbledon?
