Gang Back Together

Each episode will be steamed every Saturday on Paddy Powers social media channels.Paddy Power Commented , “ The Premier League is back in our lives once again, but there are some familiar faces that wont be on our screens for the first time in years.“ Or so you thought. We’ve managed to get the gang back together, and we see what their lives are like now as they live together and try to navigate the new world of football.“ We cannot confirm or deny how accurate it is to the truth.”  The operator has often found themselves in hot water for tongue-in-cheek campaigns, often featuring huge names who have found themselves out of a job. Paddy Power found themselves in the news again recently after vowing to plant 6,000 trees each time Arsenal lost a game, but later apologised after it was deemed as homophobic after a joke was mentioned in the ‘Fan Denial’ campaign video.Paddy Power have teased fans the second instalment is coming soon.
