Kids Of Britain, Your Country Needs You!
Jetix is calling on all kids that dream of being a national football hero to take part in the Euro Galactik Cup. Kids from all over Europe will be playing against each other in a competition that aims to crown one nation the European Galactik Champions. And, in addition to helping Britain onto glory, kids across the UK could win a trip of a lifetime for them and their friends to the prestigious Soccercamp Marbella training facility.
The tournament will be at the heart of Jetix’ Football Month which will see Jetix channels across Europe running on-air competitions and football related content including the new series of the popular animated adventure show, Galactik Football.
The online tournament, which will coincide with Euro 2008, will see 16 countries do battle to be crowned champions of Europe. Kids from all over the continent will take part in nine skilled-based games including penalty shoot-outs, dribbling and goalkeeping skills to earn points for their chosen country. Players can go to www.jetix.co.uk/cup to play for Britain with all the points scored accumulated into a league table of the countries, which will be regularly updated, so you can see how the UK is performing.
The UK will also have its own national league table where kids can win prizes and see how they rank both nationally and internationally. The top scorer will then be entered into a prize draw to win the chance for them and up to 14 friends to spend five days at the prestigious Soccercamp Marbella where some of Europe’s top teams including Bayern Munich, Everton and Fiorentina FC train. A spokesperson for Jetix, said: “Football fever will be gripping us all over Europe this summer in the build up to the European championships. The Jetix “Euro Galactik Cup” is a fantastic opportunity to take passion for football even further and compete online with friends and peers across Europe to see who really is the ultimate soccer nation.”
The 16 countries taking part in the tournament are: the UK, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Hungary, Russia, Romania, Greece, Turkey and Czech Republic.
