JD Sports, has launched its own take on this year's World Cup
and being the 'King of Trainers' there was only one thing this could
ever involve, trainers and lots of them. The new competition will
involve a total of 32 pairs of footwear, one pair to represent each of
the countries competing in the 2010 World Cup.
At the start of the World Cup the sneaker heads at JD Sports selected 32 of their
favourite Nike, Fred Perry and Adidas
trainers. These trainers were then divided into eight groups with the top two teams from each group progressing
through to the knockout stages in their fight to compete for the overall title of
World Champion of Trainers 2010.
The World Cup of Trainers competition is currently running on the JD Sports Official
Facebook page where fans of JD are able to vote for their favourite trainers, each vote counting as a goal for their team with the
most votes wining the match. The competition will close on the 11th of July, the
same day as the World Cup final, so there is still time to enter.
As a reward for taking part in the competition, JD Sports will also be giving away a
prize to one lucky winner whose details are the first name drawn at random from all

Once the winners name has been drawn, they will instantly become the envy of their
friends by getting themselves a choice of 32 pairs of trainers from the full
selection on the JD Sports website.
