Do you want to be the new face of Wigan Athletic? ESPN are going to be filming soon for the new campaign and want Latics fans to volunteer to have themselves filmed for the live games…

The PR Company for ESPN want to film football fans of all Premier League sides ahead of the new 2011/2012 season.

They are looking for supporters of the twenty top flight football clubs to be filmed holding their clubs kit, and this footage will be used each time Latics is shown live on ESPN.

An example of their work can be found here: Branding/

The new campaign will see supporters filmed in either their working environment or pursuing a hobby. So it could be you’re a mechanic who supports Wigan being filmed in your car workshop, or a skateboarder with a love of Latics doing some tricks in Alexandra Park.
