Everton and Fancurve are offering fans the chance to design the Club’s first digitally wearable shirt and win a meeting with the First-Team squad.
The design competition is the first joint-initiative to be launched by the ground-breaking partnership, which was announced earlier this month.
Fancurve, a US-based digital sports fashion platform, aim to develop a series of high-end digital shirts as fashion wearables for fans’ avatars in the Metaverse.
And the first offering will be designed by one lucky supporter, before being produced by Fancurve and released later this year.
Blues’ fans can download a design template from the Fancurve platform at www.fancurve.com, or submit freehand drawings.
No previous graphic design knowledge is necessary and the only limitation to the design is the imagination of the creator!
Entries can be submitted until September 4, after which a shortlist of five designs chosen by Fancurve will go to the public vote, with Blues’ fans selecting the winner to be produced by Fancurve.
The winner of the design content will also win a money can’t buy experience, where they will watch the first team train ahead of a meet-and greet with the players.
The experience also includes a Q&A session with Everton Club Ambassadors followed by photograph opportunities, and lunch in an Everton executive box at Goodison Park.
Chris Cook, SVP Partnerships at Fancurve, said: “We are proud to be partnering with Everton and the club’s passionate fanbase.
“Our first aim was always to offer supporters a chance to get involved in this exciting venture.
“This will be the Club’s very first digitally wearable shirt and it feels appropriate that fans have their say in what it looks like, so we are hugely excited to see what designs they conjure up and look forward to choosing a worthy winner.”
The shirt design will be released later in the year as the first in a series of unique, photo-realistic custom collections, designed and created by Fancurve’s team of highly-skilled 3D fashion designers and using themes from the Club’s identity and values as an inspiration.
