Hull City and Principal Club Partner Giacom are working together to give young supporters the opportunity to show off their football skills and win some very special prizes for both themselves and for their school.
The ‘Giacom Goals: Connecting Kids To Tech’ initiative aims to give the Club’s younger fans easier access to remote working tools, particularly amidst the current climate of many activities moving online.
Giacom isasking supporters aged 16 and under to upload a short video (no longer than 20 seconds) of their best goal, with Hull City Head Coach Grant McCann then set to pick the winners. The goals can come from grassroots games, school football or even your back garden!
Prizes on offer include signed Hull City merchandise, match tickets, the chance for you and your class-mates to recreate your goal on the KCOM Stadium pitch on a matchday when fans are allowed back in, coding lessons for your class and a whole host of technology for your school kindly donated by Microsoft.
Giacom’s Chief Marketing Officer, Jacey Moore, said “We‘re delighted to be able to work with our partners, Microsoft and Hull City, to support youngsters to get involved with our two favourite things – tech and football. And of course, with the opportunity for the winners’ class to receive a coding lesson, we could even be inspiring some of our future employees!”
Joe Clutterbrook, Head of Commercial and Marketing at Hull City, said; “This is a great initiative by Giacom and something we are really proud to be working in partnership on. Supporting learning through tech, and promoting a healthy lifestyle needn’t be mutually exclusive and Giacom Goals brings both elements together perfectly. We’re really looking forward to seeing the goals come in!”
