JD Sports, has launched its own take on this year’s World Cup and being the ‘King of Trainers’ there was only one thing this could ever involve, trainers and lots of them. The new competition will involve a total of 32 pairs of footwear, one pair to represent each of the countries competing in the 2010 World Cup.
At the start of the World Cup the sneaker heads at JD Sports selected 32 of their favourite Nike, Fred Perry and Adidas trainers. These trainers were then divided into eight groups with the top two teams f r o m each group progressing through to the knockout stages in their fight to compete for the overall title of World Champion of Trainers 2010.
The World Cup of Trainers competition is currently running on the JD Sports Official Facebook page where fans of JD are able to vote for their favourite trainers, each vote counting as a goal for their team with the most votes wining the match. The competition will close on the 11th of July, the same day as the World Cup final, so there is still time to enter.
