(PRWEB) October 9, 2009
JD Sports has launched a competition that offers entrants the chance to win one of ten pairs of JD exclusive adidas Originals ZX750s signed by, former lead singer of The Stone Roses, Ian Brown. Competition entrants also have the chance to win one of ten copies of Brown's sixth solo album, 'My Way', which was released 21 September 2009.
The cover of Brown's latest album has a picture of the singer wearing a pair of JD exclusive adidas Originals (http://www.jdsports.co.uk/adidas ) ZX750s, so fans who already have the album will be familiar with the trainers (http://www.jdsports.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?storeId=10151&catalogId=10551&categoryId=12201&langId=-1§ionId=men&top=Y&categoryName=cat_12201&subCategoryName=Mens%20Footwear&category=12207&childCategoryName=cat^12207&childSubCategoryName=All%20Trainers&childCategory=40704&sortfield=Relevance&changedAttr=categoryMenu&position=1&allResults=true ).
Matt Webster, online marketing manager for JD Sports, said: "Music has always been close to our heart at JD and adidas (http://www.jdsports.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CatalogSearchResultView?storeId=10151&catalogId=10551&langId=-1&Brand=Adidas&allResults=true ) Originals have been giving us some of the freshest trainers and clothing for decades, so we're really pleased to hook up on this exclusive competition to help celebrate Ian Brown's new album launching. Plus as the King of Trainers, it was fitting that Ian wears some JD exclusive adidas Originals ZX750s on the album cover."
To enter the competition, entrants need to register with the JD Sports (http://www.jdsports.co.uk/ ) website and then answer one simple question about Ian Brown. The competition closes 31 October 2009.
The JD Sports website is also currently running a competition (closes 30 October 2009) giving 6-18 year olds the chance to train with the Manchester United soccer school.
