Liverpool are ready to set a record in the EPL and across the World as they will be giving a fan an opportunity to join the team and play a single Premier League match before the year runs out. The club’s official Twitter handle hit the 5 million-follower mark some few days ago, and to celebrate and appreciate the fans, they are ready to hand the number 5 Jersey to a fan. The lucky fan will have to tell the club why he should be chosen amongst the millions of teeming fans that will be hoping to win the competition.
The club’s Chief Media Officer, Matthew Baxter, announced the contest to the media and highlighted why Liverpool are willing to offer their fans the opportunity to get hands on the “extraordinary-money-can’t-buy-prize”. He stressed that the Merseyside club are appreciative of the fans’ support thus far and eulogized the faithful all across the world as incredible, passionate, loyal, and full of pride.
Baxter agreed that social media has brought the Liverpool family closer together regardless of their locations and that people can interact about the club’s activities. The contest was made open to all their followers on twitter and a winner could emerge from any part of the world to get hands on the prize of a lifetime.
A tweet to the effect reads:
Such fun will no doubt continue to endear fans to the Reds and it won’t come as a surprise if other clubs across the globe decide to start emulating Liverpool. Perhaps, the lucky fan won’t only have the opportunity to train at the Melwood ground and meet the players, the game could also serve as a trial and who knows if a youngster will eventually realise his chances of becoming a professional footballer.
