AS a thank you for their never ending support, Scotland stars Darren Fletcher and Robert Snodgrass put down their football kits and picked up the phones to give dedicated fans a special treat.
Manning the Vauxhall Fan hotline for one day only, the players surprised lucky supporters with a FaceTime call.
The Tartan Army were encouraged to enter a competition to win a signed shirt as part of the Vauxhall Motors #GetIN campaign, designed to bring fans close to the players with one off experiences.
And a few lucky winners certainly got that, with Scotland captain Fletcher and Hull City star Snodgrass calling them on FaceTime personally.
The two footballers didn’t waste the opportunity to have a bit of fun with the lucky winners, making one fan perform his best lion impression on camera.
Talk about the Hampden Roar…
Another fan was surprised on his way to boxing practice.
Neill was asked to perform his best boxing moves on camera in order to win the signed shirt and impressed the players with a knockout performance.
Fletcher and Snodgrass also did their best Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh impressions and took on the role of talent judges as fans Stuart and Logan belted out the national anthem in exchange for a signed shirt.
Andrew Curley, Head of Sponsorship and Events at Vauxhall Motors, said: “As sponsors of the Home Nations we were delighted to surprise these dedicated fans with their national heroes – giving them their own #GetIN moment. #GetIN is about rewarding the fans for their unwavering support as we build excitement ahead of Russia 2018.”
Vauxhall launched #GetIN as a platform for fans to show their support for their teams, celebrate the spirit of football and give fans one off experiences and real #GetIN moments. Kicking off earlier this year, the campaign started with a nationwide hunt for the ultimate #GetIN goal celebration ahead of the European Championships in France.
