Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a pro sponsored by a major brand? New Balance are giving their fans the opportunity to experience this in a global competition to find squad members for the #NBBlackoutSquad.

New Balance have made a big splash since announcing their entry into the football market earlier this year, and have employed a collection of their major stars to promote this competition in a YouTube video. See Aaron Ramsey, Vincent Kompany, Marouane Fellaini and others in the video here:

The lucky winners will receive exclusive New Balance football packages throughout 2015, including kits, shin pads and boots. This means that squad members will be trialling new boots even before they have hit the shelves!

Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey said “This is a dream come true for so many amateur players. There is nothing quite like the feeling when you put on new boots and kit for the first time and being able to wear it before your closest rivals, I’m sure the winners will feel 10 feet tall! I’m looking forward to welcoming the winners to the New Balance team”.
You can enter the New Balance #NBBlackoutSquad competition here. Sign up opens on 9th March and closes on 6th April.

Credit to New Balance for this very cool idea, and good luck to everyone who enters!
