Manchester City and Wix.com have launched a new campaign that will see SMEs compete for the chance to recruit a Manchester City player to their business.
New talent on your team
’ campaign will see one small business win the opportunity to employ a Manchester City player for the day, to see if professional footballers are up to the task of running an SME.
Any small business that uses Wix.com’s web development platform is eligible to enter, with the competition closing 22 August and the Manchester City recruits starting their new jobs in October.​
Wix.com is the official website design and hosting partner for the Premier League football club, and is famous for its high-budget campaigns, recently impressing at this year’s
Super Bowl with a TV ad spot featuring actors Jason Statham and Gal Gadot
Omer Shai, CMO of Wix.com, commented: “While 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.”
