WIN! Play ‘Penalty Payout’ on talkSPORT for a chance to win up to £1,000!

All next week we’re playing our ‘Penalty Payout’ competition, and giving you the chance to walk away with a massive £1,000.


From Monday 20th July 2020, we will be playing ‘Penalty Payout’ live in talkSPORT Breakfast where we will bring one lucky listener to air each day to step up to the penalty spot with up to £1000 up for grabs!

You’ll be asked to identify from a piece of live commentary whether the penalty taken in-game was scored or not… answer correctly and you’ll win £250. Walk away or risk it all for penalty number 2! You’ll then be played a second clip to correctly identify from… get that right and you’ve won £500 overall. Step up to the spot for the final time and try your luck to win a massive £1000! But if you guess incorrectly you will walk away empty handed…


Think you’ve got the nerves to put yourself through a penalty shootout? Then simply Text ‘WIN’ followed by your name to 85544 to take part!



Text messages will be charged at £1.50 plus your standard network rates will apply.


Entries must be received before the lines close at 9am on Monday 20th July 2020. Phone lines will reopen for the next days sequence shortly after the competition has been executed on air in talkSPORT Breakfast each day.
