With 120 days to go to Asia’s biggest and most prestigious football tournament, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is giving football fans the opportunity to celebrate and showcase their passion for their teams with the launch of the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019™ Team Bus Slogan contest.
From now until September 30th, 2018, football fans can submit their slogan proposals for their favourite teams via the AFC’s social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, in the first phase of the contest, with the ultimate winners receiving an autographed national team jersey.
And the ultimate accolade will see the 24 winners have their slogans painted on the official team buses, which will be broadcast across the world and will ferry some of Asian football’s biggest names between the eight stadiums across the four cities, from January 5 to February 1, 2019.
AFC General Secretary, Dato’ Windsor John said: “With the expansion from 16 to 24 teams, we are confident that the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 will connect with more fans than ever before. Through this slogan campaign, we want to inspire a greater sense of affinity and national pride between fans and their teams.
“More importantly, we want to strengthen our engagement with the global digital community and provide our passionate fans with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play their part in creating Asian football history.”
On October 8, 2018, three finalists for each team will be revealed, paving the way for a fresh round of online voting via the www.the-afc.com, which will give fans the opportunity to have their voices heard until November 1, before the winning entries are announced on November 5, 2018.
True to the tournament’s overarching slogan of “Bringing Asia Together,” the competition is open to people of all nationalities and ages. The slogan should be no more than 12 words in English and must capture the essence, excitement and spirit of their favourite teams.
