As some of you will know, at the end of last season I hinted at the possibility of a new and bigger crowd surfing flag for the Shed End.
I am now pleased to announce that a competition will be run to design a new 50ft x 25ft overhead flag for use in the Shed End. Those interested in submitting their designs should email them (in Jpeg format) to firstname.lastname@example.org. One winner will be chosen by a panel of judges, with the prize being a pair of tickets to a Chelsea home game of their choice during 2014/2015 season. In the previous competitions held to design the Matthew Harding flags, the standard has been high so please try to use the best tools available when submitting yours. The closing date for entries will be Friday August 1st. Please note; no individual correspondence regarding the final design of the winning entry will be entered into.
The competition has also been posted on the official Chelsea website – click here to view the story.
This new flag would not have been possible without the involvement of so many last season. This is the next phase of a plan that will hopefully see a bigger and better atmosphere in The Shed both visually and vocally. As most of you will know (and can read about below), our plans got underway last season with a crowd surfing flag in The Shed.
So, get designing your flags and good luck!
