Fans line-up with Wales squad thanks to Vauxhall
Welsh supporters were given the opportunity of a lifetime when Vauxhall, the national team sponsor invited more than 100 fans to pose with the Wales team for squad photo ahead of this year’s European Championships.
The activation was part of Vauxhall’s Euro 2016 campaign #GetIN, which encourages each of the home nation’s fans to celebrate each moment this summer, whether that’s inside or outside football.
Vauxhall, the Wales national team sponsor invited fans through various competitions on their social media platforms to watch the training session before being able to take photos and autographs with Chris Coleman’s team.
Andrew Curley, Head of Sponsorship and Events at Vauxhall said: “As the national team sponsor we’re in a privileged position to be able to give fans these kind of opportunities.
“Wales are flying high and the fans have been a major part in their success. We thought this would be a great opportunity to show the fans that they are part of this journey by having a big squad photo.”
“This was a ‘Get In’ moment for many fans, it’s not every day that you get to line-up in a team photo with the likes of Gareth Bale.”
One supporter, who had won through the @VauxhallWales Twitter account said: “It was a brilliant idea by Vauxhall, I was lining up for the picture and just in front of me there was Aaron Ramsey and Chris Coleman.”
He added: “it was quite a surreal feeling being in a team photo with the Wales squad and day I’ll always remember.”
#GetIN is all about that feeling of excitement when you’re poised for a big game, the sun is shining, and you’re surrounded by your mates.
Win, lose or draw, there will be moments to celebrate throughout the summer, Vauxhall can help get your closer to your teams.
