Manchester United Unveils the Facebook Goal Challenge

On Sunday June 19th, Manchester United posted a unique Facebook Goal Challenge video on its Official Facebook page that attracted 27K likes and 2.7K comments within a matter of just two (2) days (however, it is important to note that ManU has 16MM registered Facebook followers).

The video featured a collection of the team's stars, including Wayne Rooney, Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, Edwin van der Sar, Luis Nani, and Chris Smalling, competing head-to-head in a shooting competition.

Manchester United featured a giant "Facebook Goal Challenge" banner across a regulation sized goal and tasked the players with competing in an accuracy challenge to determine an unofficial champion. There's no word on whether Facebook was actually affiliated with the promotion or if Manchester United just created the stunt while unofficially using Facebook's logo and marks.
