Vauxhall readies for Brazil 2014

JonathanMay 22, 2014

Vauxhall is welcoming the Fifa World Cup 2014 in Brazil, by giving some keen England fans the chance to talk to their football heroes.

Joe Hart, Danny Welbeck and Fraser Forster will all be doing their part to ensure that England get through their group stages, and maybe progress even further at the World Cup, which kicks off on June 12th.

Vauxhall, who are the official England team sponsor, invited the sporting trio to take part in a Q&A session streamed live on Facebook. Indeed, as the opening of the World Cup draws closer, the car maker is doing everything it can to bring football fans closer to the game, even for those who haven't got themselves a ticket for Rio.

Fans submitted their questions on Vauxhall's England Football Facebook page, leaving comments on the Q&A post. Later this month, the 23-man squad will board the plane to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, hoping that they will return with more than just their passports.

Vauxhall is also giving a few lucky fans the chance to get closer to their idols before they board the World Cup plane. Training sessions will take place at England's St George's Park and will be open to a select number of competition winners, giving them the opportunity to see their national team play before the big event.

Vauxhall's head of sponsorship Chris Hornbuckle said: "Vauxhall has been at the heart of England's journey to Brazil and want to give fans a chance to get closer to their heroes at every opportunity."

"Social media plays a huge role in fan interaction and our Facebook fans enjoyed a world first with the England team. The fans are at the centre of our World Cup campaign and we are looking forward to taking them behind the scenes at the England team training session."

The Fifa World Cup 2014 kicks off on Thursday June 12th with Croatia taking on home team Brazil, while England fans will have to wait until June 14th to see the lads play their first game against Italy.
