Match Attax NFRN Promotion

19th October 2012
Match Attax reaching fever pitch

This promotion is now closed.

Our exclusive deal with Match Attax is beginning to gain momentum, as news of the NFRN Exclusive card reaches playgrounds up and down the country and filters down to budding collectors.

We expect the card to become highly sought after and remind members that the card is only available from Topps using a leaflet provided.

We have also heard that the Peter Crouch Card has already been seen on eBay with a £15.00 price tag and have heard instances of entrepreneurs setting a price for leaflets they have acquired.

If you need additional posters or more leaflets, please contact the NFRN Helpline on 0845 601 5818 or email james.dunn@nfrn.org.uk

Republic of Ireland: Terms & Conditions Error

Topps have apologised for the oversight of stating this was a UK only promotion in the Terms & Conditions.  Topps said they "will honour all entries in the correct matter as expected". Irish retailers are advised to verbally make customers aware of the error when handing over the leaflet.

At this stage Topps have no immediate plans for any leaflet reprint.

12th October 2012
Unscrupulous collectors print their own leaflets

We have spotted that some avid collectors have worked out that if they print their own leaflets they can avoid the need to visit your stores.

We have discussed this with Topps and agreed that only original leaflets will be accepted by them. Only a handful had reached Topps.

Inadvertently, this has given us the very PR we require and demand for the Peter Crouch Card and the chance to win a training session with Alan Shearer will continue to gain momentum.

Unfortunately the leaflet can no longer be downloaded from our website but If you require more leaflets or PoS items, please contact the NFRN Helpline on 0845 601 5818 or Topps directly on 01908 800 123. These will be sent out to you within 7 days.
