I believe that is genuine and the url is too.

For numbers BT use for messages please see https://www.bt.com/help/landline/i-ve-just-got-a-text-from-61998-or-60204--is-this-a-genuine-mess

@BikerDon @jac_95 

Can you imagine BT handing out free tickets? If they are, then why haven't I or my family had any offers?

It is common to spoof both numbers and web sites.

I hope you didn't provide any security information but, in saying this, I could be wrong.

It's legit, I got the same one, sender was BT, it also confirmed the end of the BT account number and BT ID
I'm not a sports fan so I binned it though, if you enter good luck 🙂
