Gillette has kicked off a nationwide competition giving five-a-side teams the chance to feature on adverts during Sky Sports’ show, Gillette Soccer Saturday.

A selection of special Gillette precision pitches across the UK’s Powerleague centres have been fitted with red button technology, allowing players to retrospectively capture a great precision goal, save or moment of skill that could make it onto the silver screen alongside the likes of Jeff Stelling and Charlie Nicholas.

To enter, players need to simply hit the red button on the side of pitches at either Enfield, Gateshead, Shrewsbury, Sunbury, Trafford or Wigan. Their clip will appear on where they can find their moment and submit it for consideration.

Matt Thomas, Gillette and Venus UK&I brand manager, said: “Precision and innovation are at the heart of everything we do at Gillette. This campaign brings both of these together through a truly unique partnership with Powerleague and Gillette Soccer Saturday, enabling young guys to feature their 5-a-side precision moments on national TV. 

“There’s also nothing quite like scoring a sublime goal, so naturally we want everyone who enters to share their clips with their friends.”

The best clips, chosen each month by Gillette, will appear before and after each ad break on Gillette Soccer Saturday as well as during Sky Sports News HQ.
