San Diego, California - Calling all armchair sportscasters! Union Bank, N.A., in partnership with the San Diego Chargers, today announced the Armchair Sportscaster Contest where contestants can visit www.armchairsportscaster.com and submit a video of their best play-by-play commentary for the chance to win a pair of 2013-2014 season home game tickets and an appearance on the Chargers Gameday TV Show.
Contestants can upload a video (or record it through the site’s record feature) of themselves commentating on one of six plays available -- “Roughing the Kicker,” “4th and Inches,” “End Zone Dance,” “Immaculate Deception,” “94-Yard Punt Return,” and “Face Mask.” Videos will be posted online for community voting, and judges will select finalists based on the most votes, as well as creativity. In addition to winning a pair of 2013-2014 season home game tickets, the winner will be recognized at the December 16, 2012 San Diego Chargers vs. Carolina Panthers game and will enjoy a TV appearance on Chargers Gameday TV show to air on December 16, 2012.
“As a committed partner of the San Diego Chargers for more than ten years, Union Bank is proud to support the Chargers and demonstrate our commitment to San Diego,” said Union Bank Senior Vice President and Regional Executive Lawrence Henry. “We wanted a fun way to engage our customers and capture the enthusiasm of all San Diego Chargers fans.”
The public can view submissions and vote on favorites until the contest closes at 11:59 p.m. on November 27, 2012. The public can vote on as many videos as they’d like, and judges will select a finalist in each category. Of the final six videos, the one with the most votes will win.
“This is a new and unique opportunity for Chargers fans to show off their passion for their favorite team,” said Chargers Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer A.G. Spanos. “Union Bank has been a great teammate for a number of years and we’re excited to partner with them on the Armchair Sportscaster program. We know we’ve got some enthusiastic fans so I’m sure it will be hard to pick a winner from all the entries that they are sure to submit.”
