Manchester City players swap stadium for shop floor
Web development platform Wix.com is marking the start of the new English football season by offering SMEs the chance to recruit Manchester City players to their business.
As Manchester City’s official website design & hosting partner, Wix.com will kick-off the new season by offering one small business the chance to recruit the world-famous players for one day. Whether it’s dog-grooming or Zumba, magic tricks or cocktail-making, taxi-driving or sushi-making, the players will try their hand at the skills required to run a SME.
The “New talent on your team” campaign will officially launch on today when entrants may submit their Wix business website for a chance to teach the Manchester City players a new set of unique skills. Entries close on 22nd August from which a winning business will be chosen. The lucky SME will teach the players new business tricks in October.
Wix.com CMO, Omer Shai said: “Whilst the Manchester City team may be better at football than dog-grooming or sushi-making, having a globally recognised star try their hand at running your business is bound to be good for its profile.”
“As Manchester City’s official partner, we’re excited to be sharing our partnership opportunity with our users, showcasing the best businesses, sites and the world’s leading football players, on a global stage. It’s going to be great to see them in action.”
