UK GAME’s high-end retailer is celebrating Euro 2020 by giving away Pokémon England futsal exchange cards.
The first of the exclusives, Eevee England Futsal Promo Card, and the second, Grookey England Futsal Promo Card, are already released, with GAME reporting many requests from fans to secure them. The third, with Scorbunny, will be available from tomorrow (the 18th), subject to availability and until stock. All the Pokémon in the range are seen worn on England’s national team football jerseys.
It seems that the first two cards are no longer available, with prices on eBay already rising:
To get the latest card – which is available online with select bundles and in all English GAME stores – you’ll have to spend £ 15 for the Pokémon Trading Card Game product.
While the four England Futsal Promo cards are only available to GAME customers, there is also a fifth special card on offer, featuring Pikachu.
To be in a chance to get it, you need it register your Club in order The FA Pokémon Youth Futsal program. You see, the cards are part of a collaboration with England Football to promote youth futsal and “encourage participation in this highly knowledgeable and exciting version of football.”
But that’s not all:
GAME also offers a second promotion – the chance to meet and beat Gigantamax Sandaconda from June 18 to July 18, 2021. This GAME exclusive will be available in all stores and online, with no purchase required. Use your special code to receive a Dynamax Crystal in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield – as long as stocks last. Using this Dynamax Crystal will create a special Max Raid Battle available in your game where you can tackle Gigantamax Sandaconda and try out the Max Raid Battle as many times as needed to win, or until midnight on the day the Dynamax Crystal is used.
The Pokémon Trading Card Game had something of a bumper period at the time, with 3.7 billion cards sold in 2020.
