Make Transfer Deadline Day a UK National Holiday

This petition had 15,701 supporters


Jim White and Natalie Sawyer are calling on YOU to help make the January Transfer Deadline Day an official UK National Holiday.

As 'Sky Bet Transfer Fund' ambassadors, Jim and Natalie are already helping Football League fans win £250,000 for their favourite club to spend on players in the Summer. And now they have also teamed up with Sky Bet to help try to give you the gift of time by fighting to make Transfer Deadline Day a public holiday.

That’s an extra day to enjoy a lie in, an extra day of cups of tea on the couch in your pyjamas and an extra day watching the news unfold as players put pen to paper. 

Did you know the UK receives the second lowest public holiday entitlement in the world! We even have the lowest amount of bank holidays in Europe, with 8 days compared to the average of 12 across G20 economies. Just 8 days!

Together we can do this! We want you to take your enjoyment of Transfer Deadline Day to the next level and we know that its easier to do that on your sofa rather than at work, so lets make this happen!

Are you in?
