The American chocolate company MARS are offering 1 million footballs as an on pack promotion. The footballs are exclusively designed with a logo of England’s National Football Team. One of the reasons why MARS is collaborating with the English National Team is because the company is an official supporter for the team.

An association with the English National Football team is a great way of showing off the MARS brand. This is because it is well respected in the UK, as well as having three famous footballers, Wayne Rooney, Gary Cahill and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at the picture.
