Free haircuts coming to a ground near you

Coming from the idea that men are more likely to open up for more meaningful conversations with their barbers, the #BetRegret Barber Truck Tour will be visiting three fixtures this autumn, bringing free haircuts to matchgoing fans in exchange for a chat. 

The Barber Truck Tour will take in grounds from Premier League to League Two, with the first three fixtures announced today. They are:

  • Crystal Palace v Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sunday 22nd September
  • Macclesfield Town v Newport County, Saturday 28th September
  • Derby County v Luton Town, Saturday 5th October

GambleAware told us “With two trained barbers, the truck offers free haircuts to clients in return for a conversation about their betting behaviours, focusing on our three key scenarios – whilst bored, whilst drunk or when chasing losses.

“The tour targets universities and sporting events, and prompts people to Think Twice in situations they might find themselves prone to #BetRegret.”

So if you’re heading to any of these fixtures and in need of a trim, keep an eye out for the #BetRegret Barber Truck.
