The Euro 2020 championships have finally begun with the first couple of games being played, and we have created the perfect keepsake that can be treasured for all those young football fans and aspiring football players. We all have posters and pictures of our favourite footballers from their teams that we covered our bedroom walls in. We all love to collect those Match of the Day football player stickers and try to collect as many as our parents will allow us to buy in hopes that we would get the elite players that are so hard to come by.
But what if we could tell you that we can create your own personalised football poster for you? Is that excitement we hear? Of course it is!
That’s right we are offering all our readers the chance to get their own personalised football poster with their own specially-designed badge, statistics and background all of which have been chosen by you. It is a very simple free activity that only requires you to make a few decisions and take one decent photo that we can use to make your poster.
How to create your personalised football poster
First of all, we need you to take an appropriate picture to go on your poster. It is always best to get the help of an adult to do this.
We recommend that when you take your photo you should:
- Be facing forwards and looking straight at the camera
- Have the image clear and in focus
- Have your eyes open and visible
- Not have anything covering your face e.g hair or sunglasses
- Ideally have the photo taken in front of a plain coloured background
We encourage you to wear your favourite team’s or your local football team’s top too!
Once you have your photo ready – it is time to pick a badge. We have four different options to choose from which include blue swirls, purple night skies, a moon background and orange lightening in a sunset sky. They are all amazing designs so please take your time as we want to help make your poster as perfect as possible.
Now comes the hard part… the badge also features six statistics which can be rated out of 99. You pick which number you are for each statistic or to make it more of a surprise you can get someone else to choose the numbers they think you should get.
Suggestion: You can make the activity more fun by writing the statistics down on a piece of paper and getting each of your friends to score you out of 99. Add all the numbers up for each one and divide it by how many people scored you. This will help you get an average and it is a great way to get your close friends and family involved too!
Remember no football player ever gets 99 for every statistic because of their training and position they play for in each team, so we advise that you be as truthful as possible. If you have only started out playing football for your local team, don’t worry you can put the number you hope to achieve!
PAC – Pace (The speed of the player on the pitch)
SHO – Shooting (The player’s shooting ability)
PAS – Passing (A player’s passing ability)
DRI – Dribbling (A player’s ability to dribble the ball)
DEF – Defending ( A player’s all-round defensive abilities, including tackling, heading and positioning)
PHY – Physical (The player’s overall physical attributes including their strength and preferred football position)
Each badge will have your chosen name, year of birth and a flag to represent the country they are from or support.
Once you have chosen what your badge will look like it is time to make one more decision and pick your preferred background.
We have six options available to choose from that have been designed to each match the badge design. We have the classic football pitch (which is going to be a top favourite), black wood, blue with white circles and stars, green neon diagonal stripes, brown wood or silhouette of grass with the blue circles and stars.
And ta-dah! You are done. You have made all of your decisions to for your own personalised football poster. Congratulations. I bet you can’t wait to see and we can’t wait to create it.
