To celebrate the start of the Euro 2020 tournament, Sky Mobile is launching #SkyMobileGoals, and rewarding customers with free data each time England, Scotland and Wales score a goal – throughout the football tournament.
Sky Mobile will do so by adding the relevant 1GB data boost to your Sky Piggybank, subject to the number of goals scored by the home teams.
So if the home nations play like we hope and England, for example rack up an astonishing 10 goals over the fixtures, Sky Mobile customers will be able to get 10GBs of data completely free.
How good is that?
If you’re not a Sky Mobile customer yet, you can join in the celebrations by simply visiting Sky’s website here.
They have a great selection of SIM only deals at the moment, including one where you pay just £8 a month for 8GB of data – plus you can also enjoy unlimited streaming on Sky apps.
Not too shabby if you ask us.
Or should you want a little more data for your money, they are also offering 40GB for £24 a month or 60GB for £30 a month – as part of their SIM only deals. Any spare data will be rolled over each month, and you get important unlimited streaming on Sky apps included too.
You can shop these deals, and more here.

To raise awareness of the initiative, Sky Mobile is working with former England goalkeeper, David Seaman.
“The Euros holds a special place in my heart, and I’ll never forget the save that sent England into the semi-finals in ’96,’’ says Seaman. “As a spectator this time round, I know I’ll be glued to my phone and what better way to celebrate a goal than with a free data boost thanks to Sky Mobile!’’
Research by Sky Mobile, which was recently voted Best Pay Monthly and Best Value Pay Monthly network by Uswitch, revealed more than a third of Brits (37%) watch their favourite sports via their smartphone at work, with over a quarter (27%) viewing on the toilet or in a restaurant (26%).
The study of 2,000 sport fans found 16% will slip out of work, use their annual leave (16%) or excuse themselves from a family dinner (14%) to make sure they catch every match moment of the Euros tournament.
The study also found that three fifths of Brits are watching more sport via their mobile phone than they were 12 months ago (61%), with football (74%) the most popular sport to watch via mobile apps, followed by tennis (33%), Formula One (28%) and cricket (28%) respectively.
Meanwhile, with the summer of sport now upon us, the upcoming Euros tournament (55%) is set to be the most watched sports event via our mobile phones, followed by the return of the football this August (43%), the British Grand Slam (32%) and the upcoming Summer Games (31%).
However, one in five have said they’ve often missed a key sporting event as they didn’t have enough data on their mobile phone, with almost half (49%) relying on a family member or friend to watch sport on their device because they didn’t have enough data in their current mobile plan.
So if you’re looking to switch network providers, why not give Sky Mobile a try?
Are you a Sky Mobile customer and looking forward to the extra data you could be in with during the Euro 2020? Or have we temped you to switch from your current network? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box.
