Something for the weekend: American Express, which sponsors football team Brighton and Hove Albion, has kicked off its nationwide search for an Amex TikTok correspondent for the Premier League Summer Series tour in the US this July.

Fans will win the chance to gain exclusive access to the team while creating content for American Express’ and the club’s social media channels throughout the tour. They will have a behind the scenes look at a training session, get time with the players, and tickets to a hat-trick of stateside matches against Chelsea in Philadelphia, Brentford in Atlanta, and Newcastle United in New Jersey.

Applicants must submit a video demonstrating why they think they would be the best person for the role. The successful candidate will win travel to the US and accommodation for themselves and one other travel companion, plus £1,000 to cover expenses.

Beverly Sawyers, senior vice president at American Express, said: “As a proud sponsor of Brighton and Hove Albion for more than 12 years, we are incredibly excited to support the club as part of the Premier League Summer Series tour to the USA. This presents a brilliant opportunity for the club to win over new fans stateside, but we also wanted to make sure our loyal fans back home don’t miss out on the action.

“Our new Amex TikTok correspondent role offers one lucky person the opportunity of a lifetime to follow Brighton and Hove Albion on their journey to the other side of the pond, and share their experience through the power of social media. We can’t wait to see the tour through their eyes.”

We at Employee Benefits think that whoever successfully shoots with this will score an exciting goal of an opportunity with many benefits. Start practicing your football chants now!
