All Whites winners from Football World Cup

All Whites winners from Football World Cup

New Zealand Football will still get a financial boost from the 2014 Football World Cup.

Every bet New Zealanders place with the TAB during the tournament will help New Zealand Football prepare the All Whites for their journey to Russia in 2018.

Last Football World Cup the TAB gave more than $500,000 to New Zealand Football, its cut of money spent by punters on the tournament.

New Zealand Football CEO Andy Martin said it was great that New Zealand Football can acknowledge the contribution made by the TAB to the development of football in our country.

‘The contribution of the TAB makes a major difference to the development of our game at grassroots level starting with our future All Whites and prospective Football Ferns. It's commitment to football helps us to compete on the world stage’ said Martin.

Kiwis bet more than $26million on the Football World Cup in 2010, making it the TAB’s highest earning international tournament for betting turnover.

Yesterday the TAB launched its Football World Cup Campaign, with a free competition offering $5 million to anyone who can name all 64 winners of the tournament.

In the past 24 hours, more than three and a half thousand Kiwis have signed up for their ‘One Shot at $5Million.’

“We want to see the All Whites wowing the world stage again in 2018, so we’re pulling out all the stops to make this our most successful sports betting campaign ever’ said NZ Racing Board CEO Chris Bayliss.

Meanwhile the All Whites are underdogs for Friday night’s friendly against South Africa.

The TAB has the All Whites at $3.75 for the win, with South Africa at $1.85 and the draw $3.40.

Full contest rules along with more information about the ‘1 Shot at $5Million’ can be found at www.tabchallenge.co.nz.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
