Nottingham Forest fans and some of the club’s commercial clients united today to reveal the 2014-15 home kit in an unusual way.
With the help of Hickling & Squires
and Prosign Print & Display
, a ten-piece jigsaw forming an image of Chris Cohen wearing the new adidas kit was created. Nine of the pieces were distributed to commercial clients, who were instructed to hide their piece in a secret location before tweeting clues as to their whereabouts from 11am.
Fans had an hour to track down each piece and return them to The City Ground, where Forest Player was live-streaming from above to allow supporters to watch the puzzle take shape.
First on the scene was Stu
, who found Trent Navigation’s
jigsaw piece outside the Navigation Brewery. Stu was shortly followed by Vicky
who arrived on behalf of Hickling & Squires
, having discovered their piece at the Theatre Royal.
And it was left to Chris
to complete the jigsaw after he discovered NET Tram's
piece and brought to The City Ground with only two minutes to spare, winning him and his fellow participants a brand new 2014-15 home shirt.
Forest would like to thank those previously mentioned, as well as everyone who took to the streets to hunt down the pieces, for their participation and assistance.
