On your marks, get set… GO! The race is on between’s 23 sponsored sports teams to compete for a huge cash injection into their club, as well as the chance to walk away with one of two iPad2s also up for grabs as part of the Fox’s monthly prize draw.

All teams sponsored by could benefit from a big cash injection when they earn points by posting on the site

Since first launching back in 2011, providing a way for local businesses to recruit in their areas without it costing them an arm and a leg, has evolved into a local listings website which facilitates FREE advertising for events, charities, cars, classifieds, businesses and much more*.

Now, heavily involved with a number of schools, local projects and fundraisers, and with its heart set on supporting the communities which it serves, is the proud sponsor of no less than 23 sports teams – providing much needed funding to youth and adult teams across the south, from volleyball to sea kayak polo and everything in between.

Having all benefitted equally from’s support over the past year, the competition is about to get fierce between the clubs, with this week seeing the launch of a challenge for the teams to gain as many points via posts on the site, in an effort to rack up their score  and compete for a top prize.

Although one lucky team will be benefitting from an additional £1000 to help support their club, no-one is a loser – ALL sponsored teams will have their points converted to cash after the closing date of 18th March. With every point worth two pence and multiples being gained by each listing (most of which are free), this is undoubtedly a fantastic opportunity for local people to really get behind their teams, and earn them some much needed cash – as well as recycling their unwanted goods, cars or using the site to promote their own businesses, events or nearby charities.

As if this weren’t enough of an incentive, with the team also giving away an iPad2 to one randomly selected ‘postee’ each month, there’s plenty of reason for everyone to get involved, and get listing now!

Founder Michael Thompson told HugoFox News:

“We’re really excited to be involved with so many fantastic teams and the proactive and determined individuals who help to run them. We’ve attended some excellent events and seen great results courtesy of the clubs we sponsor and we know what a difference the injection of further funding could make. We have designed this competition so that it is within their hands to earn as many points, and as much cash, as they can – and for one lucky group, a £1000 bonus as well. Everyone really is a winner in this challenge, and we can’t wait to see the results!”

The competition closes on 18th March 2012. For more information and rules of entry, visit our competition page, or to see all the sponsored teams, click here.

* Car listings cost £12 and events are £6 when posted by a commercial organisation, and are free for not-for-profit groups.
