The FA Cup is special, no matter what your level your club plays at, and memories of big games in the competition last long. We made a two film series called ‘Jumpers for Goalposts’ that spoke to authentic fans about what the Cup means to their club, their city, and their family, and then went down the local park to have a go at scoring their top Cup goals.
Ahead of @ManCity's semi-final against @OfficialBHAFC this afternoon, here's two lifelong City fans explaining what the competition means to them, and recreating their favourite Cup goals.— MUNDIAL (@MundialMag) April 6, 2019
In collaboration with @MitreSports: Episode One of 'Jumpers for Goalposts' is out now. pic.twitter.com/U0cdT83cS9
Craig and Matthew have both been going to watch City their whole lives, and alongside telling us about what the competition still means to the club, they have a go at Yaya Toure’s FA Cup winner in 2011 and Steve MacKenzie’s in 1981 down Heaton Park.
Manny and his two sons Satnam and Jeevan are all season ticket holders at Wolves, and Manny has been going since a game in 1987 against Aldershot. They tell us about how football correlates with the philosophy of their Sikh faith, and the two boys have a crack at Ruben Neves’ goal against Liverpool and Raul Jimenez’s against Manchester United from this season’s competition.
Today, @Wolves play @WatfordFC in their first @EmiratesFACup semi-final for 21 years, and @pedalsingh and his sons are very excited.— MUNDIAL (@MundialMag) April 7, 2019
