Closed! Win FIFA 12 for PS3 With EA SPORTS™ & Dundalk FC! EA SPORTS™ and Dundalk Football Club have teamed up to give you the chance to win a copy of FIFA 12 for the PlayStation 3! For the past four seasons, FIFA, EA SPORTS™ critically acclaimed and best selling football franchise, has exclusively featured the League of Ireland; an addition to the game that has proved hugely popular both with League of Ireland fans and gamers all over the world, so the lucky winner can pit the Lilywhites against the likes of Lionel Messi & Co. With the new season fast approaching, dundalkfc.com is preparing for another campaign of extensive coverage of the first team. With our bloggers from last year departing, we go in search of two new players to alternate blogs each week, where they will give an insight into the Oriel Park dressing room and their thoughts on happenings at the club and beyond. We are delighted to announce that young midfielder STEPHEN MCDONNELL has agreed to become the first. But now we have the small matter of naming the blog, and that’s where YOU come in! Can you come up with something to rival ‘Chewing the Kud’, used for Fahrudin Kuduzovic in 2010? If you think you’re on a winner then e-mail your chosen name to email@example.com. Please note that there is a limit of three entries per person. The closing date for entry is Friday 10 February at 5.30pm, with the winner to be selected by a four-person committee, including McDonnell, and announced the following Monday. Stephen, who is nicknamed Sam, will then pen his first blog, with part one set to go online on Wednesday 22 February. The lucky winner will be able to pick up their copy of FIFA 12 in the last week of February, just in time to get you in the mood for the start of the 2012 League of Ireland season! “We are delighted that EA SPORTS™ have come on board and supported this competition,” Dundalk FC Media Officer Keith Wallace said. “They have very kindly given us three copies of FIFA 12 for the PlayStation 3, for competitions which we are going to run over the next month in the build-up to the new season. EA SPORTS ™ have been extremely accommodating and we hope that the competitions will create a lot of interest.” About Last year, we ran a Facebook competition to name Stephen Maher’s blog, where the prize was two tickets to our first home pre-season friendly. We have decided to expand the competition this time around and present it to a much larger audience. Last week, between Monday and Friday, dundalkfc.com received over 21,000 views, we have almost 3,000 Facebook fans and 2,000 Twitter followers, so hopefully we will have a lot of interesting and witty titles to mull over when the competition closes. Competitions will be an extra feature on dundalkfc.com over the coming months, as we look to add another fun factor to the website. Another blog-naming competition will follow once this one is finished, and a third copy of FIFA 12 will be up for grabs in the week leading up to the opening Premier Division game against Monaghan United on 2 March.
