Nicotinell On Fans Good Luck Rituals

CAN THE FANS HELP BLUEBIRDS MAKE IT THROUGH THE FOURTH ROUND?

Cardiff City are currently doing well in the FA Cup and are now facing Premier League side Arsenal, but is it all down to the team or will it be the superstitious Bluebirds` fans who help sway the score at Ninian Park on Sunday? (25 Jan).

In a recent survey by Nicotinell®, the official smoke free partner of The Football League®, 65 per cent1 of Cardiff City fans admitted to carrying out a lucky ritual in a bid to boost their team`s chance of success. Some of the favourite things fans choose to do to bring the team luck include wearing their lucky pants or team colours to every game and tying their scarves in a certain way (65%).

A quarter opt for making some noise at the match by singing or chanting the same song, whilst a third choose to always meet their friends at the same pub before the game in a bid to increase the teams chances of scoring. Bluebirds` fans should watch what the oppositions` fans are eating though, as a third of Arsenal fans admitted to only eating or drinking a particular brand of food and drink, in exact quantities and at specific times during match day in the hope of bringing the Gunners extra luck on the pitch.

So whilst Dave Jones` men prepare for the challenge of meeting ten times FA Cup winners, Arsenal, Cardiff fans will also be preparing and let`s hope the power of their lucky rituals helps to see them through to the final for a second year running.

Having supported many of the 9 million2smokers across the nation in their bid to quit the habit, for over 15 years, Nicotinell® are experts in habits, good and bad. They are giving fans the chance to win season tickets and a share of £100,000 for their club`s community initiative as part of their search for the nation`s funniest and quirkiest football rituals and habits from fans all over the country.

And it doesn`t matter which team you support - whether they are in the championship, first or second division it is still worth entering. Remember, the more times you enter to more chances you have to win.
