Switchbacks looking for vocalists to sing national anthem at games

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC announced its “Be the Voice of the Switchbacks FC National Anthem Contest” today for the 2016 season.

Up to 10 winners will be selected to perform the National Anthem at Switchbacks Stadium for the team’s United Soccer League home matches.

This promotion is an online social media contest that begins at noon on Wednesday, February 24. Contestants have until noon on Wednesday, March 9 to upload a video of themselves performing the National Anthem. Contestants should upload their videos to the @SwitchbacksFC Twitter page. Video must be a minimum of 30 seconds.

The contest is open to all ages, individuals, duets, or groups. Finalists will be narrowed down by retweets, likes, and positive comments. All vocal submissions should be a cappella and only traditional renditions of the anthem will be considered. A Switchbacks committee of local business partners will choose 20 finalists and then open those videos to online fan voting for selection of the winners.

Winners will perform the national anthem live prior to the start of each of the 15 Switchbacks FC home matches, have their video posted on our website and social media, and have their name and photo to appear in our local newsletter prior to each home match.

For more information on this contest please contact Tammy Crafts at (719) 368-8420 or through email at tammy@switchbacksfc.com .
