Over the past few months, Hull City and Principal Club Partner Giacom have come together to give young supporters the opportunity to show off their football skills and win some very special prizes for both themselves and their school.
The ‘Giacom Goals: Connecting Kids To Tech’ initiative aimed to give the Club’s younger fans easier access to remote working tools, particularly amidst the current climate of many activities moving online.
Giacom asked 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 and Giacom Chief Executive Officer Mike Wardell narrowing it down to the final three nominees before giving supporters the chance to pick their final order with a vote on the Hull City Twitter page.
Prizes on offer included signed Hull City merchandise, match tickets, the chance for the winner to recreate their goal on the KCOM Stadium pitch on a matchday when fans are allowed back in, coding lessons for their classes and a whole host of technology for their school kindly donated by Microsoft.
After a week of voting, Hull City supporters had their say and chose their final order:
1st Place - Harry Wilson
2nd Place - Annabelle Cawthra
3rd Place - Riley Beetham
Congratulations to the three winners and a big thank you to everyone who participated in Giacom Goals!
