“We’re really excited to continue our sponsorship of the ‘Best Young Content Creator’ award. As a result of sponsoring the award last year, we’re proud to be working with the 2019 winner of this category – Max Hayes to create content for our partnership with The Emirates FA Cup. Max is now helping to create engaging Mitre content for a younger footballing audience. We look forward to seeing the nominees and attending this years event.”  – Andrea Fehsenfeld, Brand Manager Mitre.
