Derwent Living Eurotekkers Challenge

Created on Friday, June 10th, 2016
by Kathryn Shaw


This week, to celebrate the start of UEFA Euro 2016, we’re launching a competition designed to encourage people to get out and get active. We’re asking our online followers to film themselves showing off their technical football skills or “tekkers” and send in the results to our hand-picked judging panel.

The best videos will be shared on social media throughout the tournament with the winner receiving a huge kit bag full of Euro 2016 goodies, including an official England away shirt.
