Doritos has partnered with Joe Hart to give snack-loving teams of mates across the country the extraordinary opportunity to compete for the chance to take a penalty against the No.1 goalkeeper.
Eight teams of finalists will get to compete to be in the final two to take on Joe and experience the nail-biting moment that usually only professional footballers face, except there will be an additional twist of Mexican fun thrown in…
The challenge will bring together teams of mates from across the country for the ultimate test of their penalty spot skills – but to make sure the pressure doesn’t get too much, teams will have help from the legendary Mariachi Doritos.
Bringing their own Mexican flavour to the game, the band will dish up a host of distractions that the keeper will have to face as he attempts to save each shot.
Hart, who will face the two final teams in the ultimate Mexican style showdown, commented;
“I’m really excited to be working on the Doritos Penalty Shootout, it’s a great opportunity to get your mates together and throw your sombrero into the ring if you think you can put one past me. You might have the Mariachi Doritos on your side but be warned, I’ve been practising…”
The two teams that reach the final will star alongside Hart in the new Doritos TV commercial, which will air across the UK on 24th May. The winning team that scores the most goals will also receive the ‘Ultimate Mates Football Trip’, travelling by private jet to some of Europe’s most exciting cities, receiving VIP treatment at exclusive clubs and hotels.
Once entries close on 18th April, a judging panel will whittle applicants down to eight final teams who will score a place in the Doritos Penalty Shootout.
Doritos Brand Manager, Taylor Jenkins commented, “We are thrilled to be bringing people together in this exciting Mexican style challenge and having a No.1 goalkeeper like Joe Hart on board means now we will be creating a truly unforgettable moment for friends to share during this exciting summer of football”.
To enter, entrants need to be over 18 and register at Doritos.co.uk by 18th April, uploading a video of them and their mates showing off their top football skills and tricks on the pitch!
The competition will be supported by an on-pack promotion, where snack-lovers have the chance to try their luck against Hart in the comfort of their own home and win up-to £100 by scoring penalties in the Doritos Penalty Shootout online game at www.doritos.co.uk/shootout.
