The four winners — Thempson Muzvagwandoga, Tinashe Kachambwa, Douglas Mkhize and Tapiwa Chakanyuka — each won a trip to watch the continental’s prestigious football showcase. The trips allow the winners to be accompanied by their partners where they will all enjoy VIP treatment.
The four will join other 22 winners who won the same trips across the region.
Entering the competition was quite easy. The customers simply had to purchase a Samsung mobile phone at any retail outlet, and submit their product serial numbers via the online competition site, or via the entry forms at authorised retail stores. The competition closed on December 20 2012.
“As an official sponsor of the competition since 2008, Samsung has been engaging fans in and around the stadiums to further the excitement surrounding the tournament and this promotion is just another way we are bringing the passion and excitement of African football to our customers,” said Aiden Rousseau, Business Leader for the Hand Held Phone, a division of Samsung Electronics in Southern Africa.
“This promotion aimed to bring the spirit of Afcon and the Samsung brand to the Southern African region and showcase our world class products! As not only do consumers get the benefit from purchasing a Samsung mobile device, but by being entered into a draw for the VIP experience prize and of possibly being part of the Afcon 2013 legacy.”
Consumers in other countries like Angola, Zambia, Namibia, Mozambique, Botswana, Malawi, Lesotho and Swaziland were also presented with similar platform by Samsung.
Added Rousseau: “We had an overwhelming response to the competition — with over 30 000 entries across the various regions — and were able to draw our 26 lucky winners in random draws that took place across the various regions during the week.
