Sheffield Wednesday fan wins fabulous day out at Hillsborough with Cheeky Prices

Living the sweet life – find out how an Owls fan enjoyed a dream day out the cost of a spoonful of sugar

Lifelong Sheffield Wednesday fan  Nicholas Lowe enjoyed an unforgettable day at Hillsborough, after spending just three pence in an online competition.

But after spotting the Cheeky Prices offer online in The Star, he decided he would give it a go. A fan for over 30 years, he was delighted when he became the “Cheekiest” offer owner, and was able to take his brother Richard as his guest to the Sheffield Wednesday vs Leeds United match.

Richard hasn’t renewed his season ticket after a break enforced by Covid and due to time, has decided to attend only one or two games a season since.

Nicholas was the first Sheffield Wednesday fan to win the first pair of tickets. But Cheeky Prices are running  this competition for all of the remaining Sheffield Wednesday home fixtures. So a pair of tickets are also available on Cheeky Prices for all remaining home fixtures. If fans like it and support it, it may continue into next season.

– March 29 - Swansea City

– April 9 - Norwich City

– April 13 - Stoke City

– April 27- West Bromwich Albion

How the promo worked

Cheeky Prices is free to join and play. The aim is simply to find and keep the lowest unique price offer on a prize. Nicholas submitted his offer using free credits with a ‘cheeky offer’ to get his hands on tickets. His cheeky offer– of just three pence – netted him the prize.

As a member of the site you can see the amount of people that have submitted at least one offer, displayed as the “offerors”. You are also told if you have a chance of winning or not. The more offers you make the more chances you have of winning. Once you understand how it works you can buy more credits for as little as £2.50. The more credits the better chance you have to work out and find the Cheekiest offer.

On the big day

Nicholas was delighted to win a pair of tickets at his bargain price, and his hospitality package included:

– Luxury padded central South Stand executive seat

– Superb five-course a la carte menu

– Dedicated waiter/waitress service

– Official matchday programme and teamsheet

– Pay-bar facility available throughout the day

– Pre-match analysis from Owls’ legends

– Freshly-brewed tea and coffee served at half time and full time

He added: “It was absolutely brilliant, the staff at Hillsborough are very friendly and welcoming and the food was delicious. Former Sheffield Wednesday player Sam Winnall came into the Lounge and spoke to us so was great to hear from him.

“Then for the actual game we had a fantastic view from padded seats with arm rests and plenty of leg room. The result was a bit disappointing but probably not unexpected against an in-form Leeds side who are challenging for automatic promotion but I thought Wednesday played well and if we continue like that for the remaining nine games I think we will just about stay.”

He’s a Cheeky Prices convert, and added: “I love it; I can see why people might be sceptical but honestly it is genuine and with it being lowest unique offer wins you have the chance to win something amazing for a very small amount of money!”

As a former season ticket holder, Nicholas learned to love the game thanks to his dad, and has passed the same joy on to his kids.

He says he would recommend Cheeky Prices, and will definitely be playing again: “Definitely, I am hoping to win again to take my daughter.”
