You might not have the potential to become the next Messi, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on your football obsession! Go check out vinspired.com/football and visit the ‘Make the Team’ section. If you’re between 16-25 and crazy about football you can get a chance to win tickets
Let’s face it, you might be hanging around your local favourite club a lot anyway so why not make yourself useful and get a chance to win the Premier League tickets? All you have to do is register online and spend a couple of hours of your free time volunteering in your local club, then take a photo of yourself volunteering and upload it – you will then automatically be entered into a prize draw, to win one of numerous pairs of match day tickets!
If you don’t feel like you could be any useful volunteering around football (this includes the chance to coach, referee or organize tournaments), there are lots of other more general options to choose from. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got one minute, one day or one week to spare v has the volunteer opportunity to match, and it will make a difference! And let’s be honest – it’s going to look great on your CV too as volunteering can provide you with the following:
• Valuable work experience in a field that’s of interest to you e.g. football
• The chance to give something back to your local community
• Development of a range of new skills
• The opportunity to meet and interact with new people and broaden your horizons
• The chance to show initiative to future employers
• Additional experience to put on your CV
The campaign is supported by many leading footballers, coaches and managers, including Kieran Gibbs (Premier League, Arsenal and England player), Bill Bush (Director of Communications and Public Policy at Premier League) Stuart Pearce (Head Coach, England Under-21) David Seaman (ex-Arsenal and England goalkeeper), Chris Kamara (presenter and football analyst) and Martin Tyler (football commentator).
Kieran Gibbs will be officially launching the campaign: ‘If I wasn’t lucky enough to be playing football, I’m not sure what I’d be doing with my career and that’s why I think ‘Make the Team’ is such a great project to get involved with. Volunteering is not only a really good opportunity to put your time to something worthwhile, but it’s also a great way of building up your skills and ultimately achieving your goals, whether it’s football or another industry that you want to get into. I’m really looking forward to giving something back and doing my bit with other volunteers soon.’
David Seaman, ex-Arsenal and England goalkeeper, loves the idea too: “I think ‘Make the Team’ is a fantastic opportunity for young people to follow their passion both on and off the pitch which is why I’m right behind vinspired.com’s latest campaign. I wish I’d had opportunities like these available to me when I was younger. Getting volunteering experience under your belt is invaluable both in helping out your community and expanding your skillset – so why not get involved?”

A picture has been revealed of a Manchester City fan who through he was beating the rush when he decided to get a tattoo of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney after it emerged that he was looking to leave the club and Manchester City seemed to be his next destination.
Heading to the tattoo parlour, Simon Hart had an image of Rooney in a Manchester City shirt placed on his back, costing him a cool £500.
Maybe his next one should be T.Wat?
