FootballCV partnered up with electronic giants Samsung to find the best unsigned player in the UK to win a professional contract at League One Swindon Town FC.
FootballCV ran the rule over thousands of entrants who were shortlisted to attend a series of trials throughout the UK. Eventually 22 players were selected for Swindon’s First Team Manager and FootballCV scouts to choose the one lucky player.
The campaign was such a great success the campaign has been repeated each year since and in 2013 expanded to offer contracts to three players at Swindon Town, Leyton Orient and Wycombe Wanderers. Each FootballCV has run the rule over 5,000 entrants and run a series of events throughout the UK. In 2013 the campaign featured as a three part documentary on Sky Sports.
"Swindon Town FC recently worked with FootballCV on the Samsung 'Win a Pro' campaign and we were all very impressed with their professionalism and quality of service. It was a pleasure to work with them and hopefully this is a relationship that the club will continue to enjoy in the years ahead."
