A global cooking competition between Herbalife Nutrition sponsored football teams from around the world will launch on 26 May 2020 (PST) on Herbalife's Instagram account to encourage healthy eating and the importance of staying active.
Participating teams include LA Galaxy (United States of America), Sporting Kansas City (United States of America), FC Millionarios (Colombia), CD Municipal (Guatemala), Muangthong United F.C. (Thailand), Western Sydney Wanderers (Australia), Club Atletico de Madrid Femenino (Women’s Spain), and BSC Young Boys (Switzerland).
Each team will have 2 entries + 1 alternate in a tournament-style “knockout challenge” where participating athletes will submit a recipe for a healthy meal, 30-60 second video of them making the meal, and a picture of the finished ready-to-eat meal.
Fans will also have the opportunity to vote for their favorite athlete’s meal entries on Herbalife Nutrition’s Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/herbalife/) to determine the winner.
The top four meals voted on by fans will advance to the finals. The winner will be selected by a panel of experts and team nutritionists via Instagram Live.
A grand prize of $7,500 will be awarded for charitable donation to charity of winning player’s team located in the team’s community. A second award of $2,500 will be given to a fan vote winner of the final round.
The Global Athlete Cooking Challenge begins on 26 May 2020. A final round with selection of grand prize and fan vote winners begins the week of 1 June 2020, with the winner being announced on 5 June 2020.
