The new campaign includes a TV ad which features 250 real fans from all 20 Premier League clubs, alongside brand ambassadors Jesse Lingard and Jermaine Jenas. The emotive film, set to the tune of Yazoo’s Only You, showcases the people who make the Premier League the most exciting and diverse league in the world. The advert features some well-known fans from clubs across the League including Kayla, Crystal Palace’s eagle, and Everton’s ‘Speedo Mick’, who braves the cold on a weekly basis in just a pair of swimming trunks to raise money for charity.
