We have reached 1000 Twitter followers (1017 as of the time of writing), and as promised, here are the details of the kit giveaway.
Here at StatsBomb, we have had really strong support from a variety different clubs. We are thankful for all the team accounts that have spread the word about our work (like ChelseaStats, The Tomkins Times, Arsenal Column and LeGrove, Bitter and Blue, Executioner’sBong and probably a hundred others), but we honestly have no idea team in our audience of readers has the greatest following.
That’s where you guys come in.
I have posted a poll below. Your task is to a) vote for your favourite team and b) tell your friends to follow us on Twitter and come vote as well.
Since I’m a gamer, this contest has multiple levels or stretch goals, based on final voting in the poll, as well as additional follower count.
If @StatsBomb reaches 2000 Twitter followers, 1 free jersey/kit will be given away to a random follower with the team affiliation that wins the poll.
If @StatsBomb reaches 5000 Twitter followers, 2 free jersey/kits will be given away to a random follower with the team affiliation that is in the top 2 when the poll closes.
If @StatsBomb reaches 10000 Twitter followers, 3 free jersey/kits will be given away to a random follower with the team affiliation that is in the top 3 when the poll closes.
I will pay for the kits and I will also pay for the shipping to whatever people win it. Winning accounts will need to respond to DMs, so please don’t create a bot army of Twitter followers, because that would be awkward.
Based on the criteria above, X Random followers will receive an official kit of the following statistical all-stars for the team they identify with.
Manchester United: van Persie
Manchester City: Aguero
There you have it. The poll will close at midnight London time on Friday, October 4th 2013 and we will announce the winner(s) the following week.
Tell your friends to follow @StatsBomb on Twitter, and to vote in the poll above!
