Win as One - Football Mural
Win as One - Football Mural
Passing through Manchester, I was somewhat surprised (and a little disappointed) to see that the mural of coronavirus nurse Melanie Senior (SJ8498 : London Coronavirus Nurse in Manchester) which was painted here in October has already been painted over after little-more than a month on display.

The two adjacent walls at the corner of High Street and Thomas Street have been used for this football-themed work which is part of an advertising campaign for EA Sportsô FIFA 21 game for the Sony Playstation.

The new mural campaign has been chosen to promote the launch of the game because murals are often seen as street art and, because of that, are one of the few advertising formats that consumers are likely to actively photograph and share on social media so they are likely to be seen more widely than just in their individual locations. This campaign includes five murals across England, designed by graphic designer and illustrator Scott McRoy. The murals feature players from local football clubs at each of the locations; Greater London (Tottenham - Steven Bergwijn and Fulham Broadway - Mason Mount), Liverpool (Trent Alexander-Arnold) and this one (or is it two?) in Manchesterís Northern Quarter which feature(s) Georgia Stanway from the Manchester City Womenís team and Phil Foden from Cityís menís team.
