London Sports Business Internship Blog #4: Kit Business Card

One of the cool ideas I had to promote my name and personal brand while over in the UK was to do up a football jersey with my name, logo, colour scheme and social media information so that I could give these out to industry experts that I’d meet along the way.

I have always really liked the idea that Tony Fernandes, owner of Air Asia and of QPR gives everyone he meets an Air Asia cap and takes a pic of them for his social media feeds. I thought why not try something creative like this as well to spread my personal brand.

I designed the jersey using templates from the Argentina, Marseille, Melbourne Victory and Wigan jerseys and adding my own touches. It’s pretty funny really but I think it’s a good tie in to get my name out there in the sports business.

Lucky enough to have a friend in Vietnam who runs a sweat shop free garment factory who could get these made up for me in time.

Here are some pics of the jerseys.
