Sam, 9, is a MASSIVE Manchester City fan, so you can imagine just how excited he was when he was invited to the Etihad Stadium to take on the role of matchday Event Manager after applying for the job in First News.
Throughout his exciting Takeover Challenge, Sam was taken behind the scenes and learned exactly what happens on a matchday. Now that may sound oodles of fun (our Sports Editor was very jealous), but Sam had a lot of work to do in a short amount of time – after all, he was the matchday Event Manager for the whole day!
Now it’s over to you!
Talk to an adult and set up your own Takeover Challenge in the next few weeks. Perhaps you could be head teacher for the day? Work at your local football club, radio station or newspaper? Maybe you could get a job at your local theatre or local authority?
Film your experiences for First News Live!, ask your teacher to register and upload it here for us, and we’ll show your video here. Using a smart phone or tablet to film is fine – remember to hold it sideways so what you film is the same shape as a screen. Good luck with your challenge!
Share these videos with someone whose job you want for the day – and see if they’ll let you take charge for the day.

The Children’s Commissioner Takeover Challenge
What would you do if you could take over any job for the day? The Children’s Commissioner’s Takeover Challenge puts young people in charge of a wide range of adult jobs. It helps adults listen to children and young people’s opinions and to make important decisions – it’s time your voices were heard!
Last year, 44,000 of you took part in the Takeover Challenge, with more organisations than ever before opening their doors to young people. But can 2016’s Takeover Challenge be even bigger? Well, that’s up to you!
The Takeover Challenge starts on Friday 18 November, so be sure to head to childrenscommissioner.gov.uk/takeover-challenge to get involved. What job will you do? Watch out, adults, because the kids are coming. And they mean business!
