The promotion, which was announced this week, is called “Unreal Around the World”.

It is quite a cool contest that encourages entrants to demonstrate how their training and hard work translates to unreal performance on the pitch. Winners of “Unreal Around the World” will receive a once-in-a-lifetime global football experience at some of the world’s most iconic clubs, including FC Barcelona, AC Milan, Liverpool, Arsenal, Boca Juniors and the Brazilian Football Confederation.

To enter, contestants must post a video to the newly launched GatoradeFootball.com that demonstrates their football handling skills, creativity and originality.

They also have to draft a short essay highlighting the real work they’ve put in to improve their game.  Contest submissions will be accepted May 12 starting at 12:00 AM ET through June 12, 2014 at 11:59 PM ET.

“This prize is what so many footballers around the world dream about, and something only Gatorade can offer: the opportunity to experience and train at some of the fields and stadiums of their heroes, past and present,” said Molly Carter, Gatorade Sr. Director of Consumer Engagement. “Several of our team partners have opened their doors to us to make this possible. We collectively enjoy being able to provide an experience like this as it gives us the opportunity to drive the performance of elite footballers and underscores our growing commitment to the sport.” 

I wish that my feet were a little bit lighter, because otherwise I might try to throw my hat into the ring.

Or, rather, onto the pitch.
