Bury, Lancashire (PRWEB) July 10, 2010
JD Sports, has launched its own take on this year's World Cup and being the 'King of Trainers' there was only one thing this could ever involve, trainers and lots of them. The new competition will involve a total of 32 pairs of footwear, one pair to represent each of the countries competing in the 2010 World Cup.
At the start of the World Cup the sneaker heads at JD Sports selected 32 of their favourite Nike (http://www.jdsports.co.uk/brand/nike/ ), Fred Perry and Adidas trainers (http://www.jdsports.co.uk/brand/adidas-originals/ ). These trainers were then divided into eight groups with the top two teams from each group progressing through to the knockout stages in their fight to compete for the overall title of World Champion of Trainers 2010.
The World Cup of Trainers competition is currently running on the JD Sports Official Facebook page where fans of JD are able to vote for their favourite trainers (http://www.jdsports.co.uk/ ), each vote counting as a goal for their team with the most votes wining the match. The competition will close on the 11th of July, the same day as the World Cup final, so there is still time to enter.
As a reward for taking part in the competition, JD Sports will also be giving away a prize to one lucky winner whose details are the first name drawn at random from all valid entries.
To qualify for entry into the JD Sports competition (http://www.jdsports.co.uk/page/world-cup-competition ), entrants must play the World Cup of Trainers and answer one simple question online.
Once the winners name has been drawn, they will instantly become the envy of their friends by getting themselves a choice of 32 pairs of trainers from the full selection on the JD Sports website.
