GAME is offering a 66% discount of an upcoming football game if your name is Geoff Hurst.

The UK based video-game retailer announced today that, to celebrate the upcoming World Cup, they are offering selected discounts of EA Sports’ 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil title to customers who have certain names.

If a customer can produce proof of I.D of themselves or an accompanying friend named Edison, after Pele of 1970, Franz, after Beckenbauer of 1974, Diego, after Maradona of 1986, or Zinedine, after Zidane of 1998, then they will received a 14% discount.

And for those who share the same name as hat-trick scoring, 1966 England finalist Geoff Hurst will get a 66% discount.

“To celebrate the summer of football we had the idea to do something with the most famous names in-store,” said Ailsa McKnight, Markerting Director at GAME.

“As getting them together provided to be too much of a challenge, we are doing the next best thing by rewarding the namesakes who turn up in their place.”

The promotion runs for 10 days from June 4th to England’s first game on June 14th.
