LONDON, February 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
THIRTY-FOUR per cent of football supporters would rather receive a Valentine's card from the Premier League club they support than their partner according to a survey commissioned by gambling website beatthebookie.tv.
Results showed a distinct North/South bias with fans of Northern clubs tending to prefer a Valentine's from the team they supported to one from their significant other.
Manchester City fans look like being the least romantic of all fans in the Premiership with some 57% opting for a card from their Etihad idols. Liverpool fans were second with 51% and Newcastle fans third with 48%.
Only 39% of Manchester United fans wanted a card from their club - perhaps a reflection of their season so far.
The most romantic supporters who stated a preference for a card from their partner rather than club were Crystal Palace with only 19% opting for a card from their club.
Matthew Stubbs, Chief Executive at beatthebookie.tv commented: "We all love our football at beatthebookie.tv but even we were surprised at how readily fans were willing to swap a Valentine's from a partner to one from their beloved team.
We don't think it's a coincidence that Manchester City fans were the most up for the idea as our survey took place between 29th January and 1st February when City had beaten Spurs 5-1 and Manchester United 2-0."
The results for each individual club were:
Aston Villa 28%
Crystal Palace 19%
Man City 57%
Man Utd 39%
West Brom 31%
West Ham 29%
