A Golden Ticket from Under Armour
Having seen the new Tottenham Hotspur home and away strip unveiled in recent weeks, on Saturday it was the turn of the 14/15 Spurs third kit.
As the players strutted out on to the pitch at White Hart Lane for a prestige friendly vs German heavyweights FC Schalke, we had stocked the Under Armour box full of influential blogger fans, ready to see their heroes playing in the new on-pitch product for the first time.
The exquisite golden garment is designed in the iconic colour of ‘Glory’. For the Spurs fans in the stands, the attending bloggers and PrettyGreen’s most devout Lilywhite, Debbie, this is all it took to tentatively start dreaming of the Club’s next successful era. On the 10th anniversary of the passing of legendary player and manager Bill Nicholson, we believe again.
The match got underway and Spurs Head Coach, Mauricio Pochettino made good on his promise of stylish and entertaining football. As we sat, enjoying ourselves and cheering a 2-1 victory to Spurs, we took the opportunity to get opinion and reactions of our guests to the wider Seize Glory campaign (they are some of the influential voices amongst the Tottenham fanbase after all!)
We left the stadium full of new, positive insight from our digital friends and our job was done. A day drinking Hotspur beer next to the White Hart Lane faithful tends to help position a Spurs-focused campaign in the best light possible so another successful trip to the Lane for both the team on the pitch and us ‘working’ up in the stands!
When the Premier League kicks off next weekend against West Ham, if the players look as sharp as our new third kit, surely we’re guaranteed a positive start to the campaign!
