Bmobile customers booked for Football’s finest at 2010

Port of Spain, Trinidad - Five lucky bmobile customers have booked their space to watch matches from the greatest sporting event in the world live and in the flesh. Bmobile is planning to send a total of twelve customers to South Africa for an unbelievable 14-day prize trip to the 2010 FIFA World Cup to see the world’s most exciting football teams in action.

“I could not believe it at first. It was a great surprise,” said businessman Collin Hosein, one of the lucky recipients, speaking at a short ceremony earlier today (Wednesday 12th May).

Another winner, Ruthlyn Dickson-Boxill, said her shock at the announcement soon turned to joy, “I was coming out of the grocery when I got the call and I couldn’t believe it. Now I am very excited. I get to go to the World Cup, see South Africa. Wow!”

The three other winners - Charmaine Dick, Priscilla Wright-Forte and Narendra Maharaj - were grappling with a mixture of surprise and elation at their good fortune.

“I won’t be able to relax until I am at the airport,” Narendra said.

“World Cup Fever is gripping Trinidad and Tobago and T&T’s biggest corporate football fan can do no less that offer the biggest and the best World Cup promotion prize” said TSTT’s Lisa Agard, Executive Vice President Mobile Services. “TSTT and bmobile are very grateful for the support of our customers. They have made us Trinidad and Tobago’s number one mobile network and this is just one of many ways for us to reward them for their support.” In addition to game tickets, winners will also tour some of South Africa’s world renowned sites like the Kruger National Park and the Apartheid Museum.

The bmobile 2010 World Cup Tour was launched on April 28th and runs until May 20th. During this time Bmobile users gain automatic entries in three ways: topping-up their mobile phones with $50 or more; signing-up for post paid service or upgrading from a prepaid to post-paid or purchasing one or more of bmobile’s new money-saving bundles of airtime, texts and international calls.

The atmosphere at the world’s most popular sporting event is electric and one can only imagine what it would feel like to be one of the twelve lucky customers to sit in the stadium in South Africa and actually see Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Cameroon, Holland, Ivory Coast, Honduras, South Korea or North Korea run on to the field. The football matches are a grand prize in themselves and the addition of the visits to the Kruger National Park, the Apartheid Museum and a wine and dinner tour makes it an even more remarkable cultural experience.


“This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, whether you are a football fan or just love to travel,” Ms. Agard said. “We are giving our bmobile customers a chance to be part of history when the FIFA 2010 World Cup kicks off in South Africa.”
