As part of the celebrations surrounding its 95th anniversary, Umbro has just launched a new competition titled 'Our Game Puts You In Their Boots', and it's offering talented female and male amateur players aged between 18-24 the chance to win a special one year sponsorship deal with the brand.

In 1960, Umbro became the first sports brand to sponsor a professional footballer, creating a ground-breaking moment in the game. In honour of this history and as part of the brand’s 95th anniversary celebrations, they are now presenting a very unique opportunity to amateur players between the ages of 18 and 24, as they begin a global search of aspiring footballers. Each of the winners will be awarded a one-year sponsorship agreement with Umbro, which will see them receive regular customised boots, kit drops and the opportunity to feature in activations and at money-can’t-buy events throughout the year.

If all of that sounds interesting to you and you’re within the age bracket (we only JUST miss out in the SoccerBible office btw) then sign up for a selection event, where Umbro will put you through your paces. 

Through this campaign we’re giving something back to the consumers, by providing a money can’t buy experience to young players while potentially discovering some great talent at the same time,” explained Helene Hope, Head of Global Brand Marketing, Umbro.
