Manchester City TECNO Mobile collab

LONDON: Tecno Mobile and Manchester City have collaborated with football content and media business Footballco on a new campaign that will see two aspiring football journalists from India given the chance to become trainee correspondents writing for Footballco’s GOAL website, covering the reigning Premier League champions.

Tecno Mobile is Manchester City’s official global tablet and handset partner.

The collaboration with Footballco is an extension of last season’s association, which resulted in two trainee reporters creating more than 368 pieces of content which reached more than 34m fans and generated 5.6m video views, as per an official release.

The trainees created content with Manchester City first-team players Riyad Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus and Aymeric Laporte, as well as Manchester City legends.

This year, content created by the trainees will be published across GOAL’s global and Indian editions and social channels which reach an audience of 57 million each month in India and provide valuable experience to young trainee journalists looking to break into the highly competitive field of football journalism.

To enter the contest, fans are tasked with creating a 60-second video about Man City’s forthcoming match against Liverpool on 9th April.

Fans are able to submit their applications from Monday, March 14th with the application process closing on 27th March.
