Indesit Football Talents: four great teams, 64 talents and a final at the Emirates Stadium…
Indesit is already the official partner of four famous European football clubs – Milan, Arsenal, Paris Saint Germain and Shakhtar Donetsk – now it is looking for even more football talent.
It is launching the Indesit Football Talents competition offering football fans across Europe the chance to play at London’s Emirates Stadium.
Once registered, they will have until April 13 to create a profile and upload material that shows off their football talent and demonstrates their passion for the game.
This material can be in the form of videos (lasting no more than three minutes), photographs (in jpeg format no bigger than 1MB) or texts (maximum 2,000 characters).
From the entries, a shortlist of 250 contestants will be selected by the entire online community. This shortlist will then be whittled down to 64 by a panel from each club.
In the second stage, a celebrity panel of players from four top European teams will judge the shortlisted candidates and on 26 April 2012 announce the four teams, each with 16 players, who will meet in London on 15 May 2012.
The celebrity judges broadcasted in the viral videos promoting the activity online are Arsenal’s Vermaelen, Djourou, Walcott and Wilshere, Milan’s Boateng, Aquilani, Emanuelson and Bonera, PSG’s Lugano, Maxwell, Jallet and Hoarau and Shakhtar Donetsk’s Mkhytaryan, Srna, Luiz Adriano and Pyatov.
In the videos they embody the jury that will enable the lucky winners to see their dream come true, that of being coached by international football legends and playing in one of the world’s most famous football stadiums wearing their club’s strip.
The rules for taking part in the Indesit Football Talent contest (in English, Italian, Russian and French) can be found at Indesit Football talents official website.
