It’s that time of year. There’s a chill in the air, the leaves are changing color, the magic of the MLS playoffs is doing its magical thing, and adults who do not earn their livings as professional athletes are dressing up in costumes.
Here at Howler, the end of October means it’s time for our annual Full Kit Wanker Halloween contest, where we encourage readers to dress up in their best full soccer kit (normally unacceptable), read Howler (always acceptable) and post embarrassing photos of themselves online (questionable, but you’d be doing it anyway), all for the chance to win a new jersey of your choice.
We’ve been running this contest for a couple years and have gotten some great submissions.
From last year’s winner:
To full kit referees:
The trend even seems to be spreading to other sports across the States.
We can’t take credit for the crossover success, but we’re happy to continue encouraging full kit wankerism at least once a year. So how can you get in on the head-to-toe action?
Here’s how to enter:
- Dress up in the full kit of your choice
- Take a photo of yourself holding a copy of Howler
- Post it to Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and tag us with the hashtag #fullkithowler
We will announce a winner on the day after Halloween and that winner will get to pick out a new jersey from SoccerPro.
Good luck and happy Howlerween, wankers!
