It should be clear and obvious.’Follow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. For more stories like this, check our sport page.

The inclusion of the ‘You Gold Challenge’ in GAME-ON will enable Lynx to create content that goes beyond traditional advertising.”Jamie Brooks, Brand Manager, Lynx also commented: “We see Gfinity as a perfect partner to help us to communicate authentically with a gaming passion point that is so key for our target audience.
