Tight Briefs US soccer challenge top 10: Check out the winner from week three

The third of our weekly Tight Briefs contests saw the creative community challenged to advertise football (that's soccer to our friends across the pond) in the USA.

As Man City prepare to open a New York team and David Beckham readies a franchise in Miami, the beautiful game is enjoying a spurt in popularity in the States. But association football still lags way behind gridiron as the game of choice for many American sports fans.

So we put it to our readers to decide which of the many ads and posters sent in by our readers would best promote our national game to an audience still to be seduced by its charms. Here are the 10 most popular entries, and as always the winning idea has been shortlisted for a Chip Shop award in a special Tight Briefs category at this year's ceremony.
