Less than a year after promotion to the SkyBet Championship, Yeovil Town Football Club are partnering with a national record label to launch their own girl band.
Based on the format of the hugely successful American band The Pussycat Dolls, the group of southwest based dancers will perform with a lead singer, who organisers hope will not only help the club climb the league but also the pop charts too.
The band will become a totally unique PR tool for Yeovil Town, who will be the first football club in the UK to have their own girl band which they hope will attract a new generation of football fans to support the Glovers. The group will not only perform at all home matches during the rest of the 2013/2014 season.
Following auditions at Huish Park Stadium next month, the successful girls will work with The Famous Company to record a single which will be released on iTunes, raising money for Prostate Cancer UK who the Football League have adopted as their official charity. Organisers also hope the group will feature in a major national media campaign, including tabloid newspapers, television and mens magazines to promote the charity single.
The Famous Company boasts an impressive portfolio having previously worked with artists who have performed with Rita Ora, The Saturdays, Conor Maynard, Ed Sherran, Professor Green, Example, N-Dubz and McFly among others, at venues across the UK and Europe to audiences of thousands, with their tracks and music videos playlisted on TV.
Adrian Hopper of Yeovil Town Football Club said, “Yeovil Town are delighted to get involved in this innovative new project. We feel sure the unique chance to have a girl band linking with us as a club will not only help to launch the group but also help to spread the word of Yeovil Town Football Club to a whole new section of the community whilst at the same time helping Charity from sales of the record."
Auditions for females aged 18+ are taking place at Huish Park Stadium in Yeovil on Wednesday 4th December at 7pm. To sign-up for an audition visit www.thefamouscompany.com or contact 0843 289 4790 for more information.
