The Offer

Example Banner

There are two 468x60 Rolling Banners on every page on the site, which change every time the visitor clicks on a new page. Think of the side of a bus shelter or the electronic advertising boards at Champions' League stadia and you'll get the idea. We limit the number of advertisers to ensure effective coverage for all.

Because you share this space with other advertisers we can keep the price down.

We only support 468x60 banners on HFK. You can change your banner at any time as long as you don't change these dimensions.

The Price

A single slot costs just sterling £15+VAT for 30 days.

You can renew monthly (we'll send you a reminder) or let it lapse if you don't want to continue. Discounts are available if you want to book your slot for 6 or 12 months. No complicated contracts and no fuss.

All financial transactions are carried out through PayPal for your peace of mind and security. HFK has no access to clients' financial details.

To book your slot please email us with the following information:

      • your banner (468x60)
      • your destination URL (ie the location that you want visitors who click on your banner to be directed to)
      • your email address (for correspondence and invoices)

      Your campaign will start as soon as we receive these details and your payment.

      Text Links

      We also offer text links that can be placed on any section of the HFK site. Price on application.

      Deep Links

      If you are signed up to Affiliate Windows you may be interested in placing deep links on HFK. These are designed to allow visitors to go directly from a specific graphic on HFK to the corresponding item (replica shirt, vintage team photograph etc) in your on-line shop. There is no charge for setting up deep links - instead we take a commission on all sales generated. For more details please email us.
