JD is proud to sponsor some of the biggest clubs in European football, but that’s not where it stops, because we’re about more than just supporting the elite in sport.
We’re about community, bringing people together through fashion, lifestyle, sports, and in this case, football.
That’s why we’re so excited about our latest project, ‘JD Club Kings’. The idea’s simple, but it’s guaranteed to create scenes.
What’s Going Down
Not only that, from the first whistle to the last, the event will be hosted by EA FC fanatics, Danny Aarons (@dannyaaronsfut) and FG (@thisisfg_). These boys are BIG on the scene and will have a keen eye on the players’ gaming abilities.
There’s more… competing players will be guided by streamers who are known to have serious tekkerz when it comes to picking up a pad.
The contest is designed to see if the stars can emulate their matchday skills on EA Sports FC 24. To do this, the players will create a Pro Club and take on challenges relevant to their position.
So, which players’ thumbs have what it takes to go all the way to glory? Or will they not have the skills and rage quit?!
Let’s Meet The Ballers & Streamers
Hoping to take the crown for Celtic are Anthony Ralston, David Turnbull, and Matt O’Riley. Ralston will be tested with his defensive capabilities, whilst Turnbull and O’Riley will hope to shine in attacking drills.
Daza Bala will be the streamer in charge of giving the lads repping Glasgow’s Green & White tips and tricks to get the job done.
Will Rambo be leading Leeds to victory? Under his wing he has centre back Charlie Cresswell who’ll have to replicate his defensive prowess, whilst the flair of Georginio Rutter and Jaidon Anthony will need to translate to EA FC.
Showing up for Sevilla is tricky winger Adnan Januzaj, forward Rafa Mir, and the midfield maestro, Ivan Rakitić. The Croat’s laden with silverware, but has he got what it takes to come out on top? In his and his teammates’ corner is Lucii Iba.
Torino’s team will consist of defenders Alessandro Buongiorno, Valentino Lazaro, and Yann Karamoh leading the line. Tasked with ensuring the Serie A side get maximum points is Off Samuel.
Can Union Berlin’s representatives bring their brand of ‘terror football’ to the game? Julian FGU will be using his knowhow to get the best out of goal scorers David Fofana and Mikkel Kaufmann.
Under Ryan Pessoa’s tutelage will be shot stopper Alphonse Areola and winger Mohammed Kudus. The Frenchman’s solid between the sticks, but how will he fare in this competition?
Kudus is electric on the field, but we’ll have to find out if he can mirror this on the day. Could he be the gamechanger to bring it home for The Hammers?
Who Did it Best?
Thankfully, there’s no VAR here, but Danny Aarons and FG will be on hand to review the players’ performances.
They’ll be judged on style, technique and skill to decide which team will become the very first JD Clubs Kings.
