The Fifa World Cup in South Africa is almost here and there is still chance for England fans to compete for exclusive prizes and, at the same time, record a rousing team talk to motivate their team. The Carlsberg England Team Talk challenge is an interactive competition with exclusive prizes, including the chance to meet some of the England football team and maybe even star in a Carlsberg advert.
The build-up to the World Cup never seems to goes smoothly for England and this year has been no exception – following scandals about senior players, now Rio Ferdinand’s injury means the captain’s hopes of lifting the Jules Rimet trophy have been cruelly dashed at the last moment.
This is why Carlsberg believe it’s even more important than ever to keep the team’s spirits up and motivate them in their World Cup 2010 campaign with an inspirational team talk.
Thousands of fans have already submitted their England Team Talk videos to the official YouTube site (http://www.youtube.com/user/EnglandTeamTalk) – but there is still chance to win exclusive prizes, including the opportunity to deliver the team talk in person to members of the England team at a special VIP day at Wembley stadium.
Carlsberg, an official beer of the England football team, first invited fans to produce an England Team earlier in the year. Since the Carlsberg England Team Talk channel was launched, thousands of people have uploaded videos and recorded messages for the England team.
Visitors to the YouTube channel can also get the latest news from the World Cup, including match updates and facts of the day.
