Blantyre Soccer Academy are looking for your help to design and name the Clubs official mascot.
This competition is open to members of Blantyre Soccer Academy aged 4-15 and we are looking for an original, fun, dynamic, sporty representation of Blantyre Soccer Academy which shall be transformed into a life-size character for all to see.
The competition which is sponsored by local companies SMILESCENE and CONNOLLYS Opticians shall run from the 5th of February until Friday 26th of February 2016 and requires entrants to submit their best drawing and name for their mascot.
Spokesmen from both SMILESCENE and CONNOLLYS opticians expressed their delight about sponsoring the competition ‘’we’re happy to support such a good concept and we’re always keen to be involved with initiatives that involve the local community’’.
Chairman of the Academy Jimmy Whelan added “this is a great opportunity for the children of our Academy to take on the challenge and feel they are part of the structure of the club in this initiative by being able to use their own creative minds in their design with one lucky winner watching their design become lifelike at the end of it.”
The winner shall be picked by an independent panel of representatives and the winning design will not only receive a great prize bundle but will see their creation brought to life as their mascot becomes a key feature for the clubs annual Reamonn Gormley Memorial Soccer Festival and all other community activity events going forward.
As well as an invite to the official unveiling taking place at Hamilton Palace Sports Ground on the 3rd of June 2016 the lucky winner will also receive:
