In a Premier League first, football brand Umbro is putting the launch of the new Manchester City kits into the hands of its supporters.
City fans from across the globe are being challenged to come up with creative launch ideas which will be used to unveil the 2012/13 season kits.
The winning entrants will see their idea become a reality as Umbro will professionally film and release videos to launch the new Manchester City kits.
To enter, Blues fans simply upload their launch idea, which can be a written submission, illustration or video, to a dedicated microsite www.umbro.com/mcfc.
Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart said: “We’ve got an incredible set of fans and this is a great way of rewarding their loyal and passionate support for the club.
Our focus is always on the pitch so I think it’s better for the fans to take on the new Umbro kit launch. I’m sure they will come up with some weird and wonderful ideas.
Umbro has released amusing behind the scenes footage featuring Mario Balotelli, Joe Hart, David Silva, Vincent Kompany and Samir Nasri which shows the players filming the fan recruitment video, you can see it at: www.youtube.com/mcfcofficial
Following a catalogue of fluffed lines, forgotten scripts and distractions on set, it proves players are better suited to entertaining crowds on the pitch rather than on camera!
The closing date for entries is 31st May, 2012.
