Southampton FC gives fans a chance to win a banner
December 6, 2011 by Lyndon
Southampton football club is giving loyal fans the chance to win a banner in support the club.
The banners are currently being displayed around the city centre of Southampton, featuring a message that reads ‘Together we stand’. The banners are limited edition, which makes them an ideal collector’s item for any big fans of Southampton FC. The football club, also known by their nickname The Saints, is running the competition to win banners by entering a competition on their Facebook page, tying together digital campaigns and banner printing.
Southampton FC’s Facebook competition asks fans to upload photographs of themselves with the banners that are dotted around the city centre. The club gave details of the competition on its website, saying:
“We’re looking for smart, funny and creative images, and the only rule is that the picture must include one of our banners.”
The competition is designed to showcase and share the passion and the sense of pride that characterises fans of Southampton FC. For those fans who are not successful in winning the competition, local companies offering banner printing in Southampton can create bespoke banners that can be designed to individual specifications. These banners can then be used to support clubs at games or displayed in places where fans gather to watch the games, such as local pubs.
The Facebook banner competition closes on 15th December 2011 and all entries should be in the form of photographs uploaded to the Facebook page.
