The challenge was made and people from the PR & Comms industry came thick and fast to enter. At stake was something far more important than any account win or piece of blanket coverage. This was the chance to impress fellow industry professionals with your pointless football knowledge and crucially give you bragging rights until the start of the new season.
Over 30 people entered with teams from the likes of M&C Saatchi PR, McDonald’s, PR News Wire, Cow PR and Weber Shandwick aiming to top the table. While it wasn’t quite as an exciting climax as the Barclays Premiership, it was special in its own right and a hard fought campaign.
League champion was Lewis Miles from Freud Communications. On his triumphant win Lewis said ‘I can’t quite believe it. I haven’t been this excited since I won player of the year for gladys Rovers under 10s. Bring on next season’.
There will be a trophy presentation and a chance for everyone to catch up for a drink to reflect on the season soon (date, location TBC). The competition will be running again next year, so spread the word and keep an eye on @tnrnews for more info.
