Nike Football: Take the Stage for South Africa 2010

This summer Nike will be sending one lucky competition winner to South Africa together with Tinchy Stryder and Anton Ferdinand.

Who the hell is Tinchy Stryder? Why is Anton Ferdinand – of all the people – the face of Nike Football during South Africa 2010?

It doesn’t really matter. Here’s what you really need to know.

The competition is called ‘Take the Stage’ and it picks one ‘young football fan’ to join Anton and Tinchy in South Africa in providing ‘informal’ coverage on fan experience during the tournament through videos, articles and what not.

To be in with a chance to “Take to the Stage” young football fans are being asked to make an audition video.

The Audition Video:

You need to tell Nike why you should get the job, post their video to the competition hub on the Nike Football Facebook page, and then encourage as many of your friends as possible to vote for you via Facebook ‘likes’ – the 15 videos with the most ‘likes’ go through to the final selection round.

Gotta love the irony of how this will get me spammed in the next couple of weeks. But moving on, the final 15.

The Final 15:

Anton and Tinchy will then personally put 15 finalists through their paces to handpick who’’ll be sat next to them on the plane to South Africa.

So either it’ll be a really hot chick or it’ll be a super-cool ninja dude. The average football fan doesn’t stand a chance – neither does their team, but when has that stopped the fans, eh?

The Winner:

The winner will be announced online in early June. And once on the ground, fans at home will be kept up to date on their adventures via updates, tweets, pictures and videos.

The Search:

Anton and Tinchy have recorded a video call to arms, beginning the search for one young talented (pretty/cool) football fan. Anyone over 18 can enter.
