Local companies, Progressive Distributors, Western Union, Cayman Airways and the Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) have joined forces to offer two all-expense paid trips to the World Cup, with a competition that provides customers with the opportunity to win, once they purchase goods or services from these companies.

Customers of Foster’s Food Fair and Kirk Supermarket need only purchase qualifying items for the week from products by Gatorade; Tropicana; Quaker cereals; Hunt’s snack packs; Orville Redenbacher popcorn and Listerine. With proof of purchase and a completed application form in the entry boxes provided, they can give themselves a chance for the big prize.

Customers of Western Union need to provide their transaction number on the entry form, every time they send or receive money. Football fans who attend a game in the Foster’s League series can also enter.

This is the third time that these companies have launched this promotion. In the 2002 World Cup Finals, Caymanian residents Kenneth Davis and Indy Singh won the coveted prize trips and Mr. Singh attended the final between Brazil and Germany in Japan.

Young Caymanian footballer, 18-year-old Joseph Tatum, who attends St. George’s School in Rhode Island (USA) on a football scholarship, appears on the poster and other promotional material for the competition. He captained Cayman’s under 17 team for the 2004-2005 season and at St. George’s was his team’s MVP for 2005.

Commenting on the promotion, Mr. Jeffrey Webb, Business Development Manager for Western Union and president of CIFA said that the partnership between the three companies was an extremely valuable one in promoting football and local business at this time.

‘There is perhaps no sporting activity more exciting and more watched than World Cup Football and thousands dream of being at the FIFA World Cup Finals. We’re more than happy to pool our resources to make this dream a reality for football fans and everyone in the Cayman Islands,’ Mr. Webb said.

Progressive Distributor’s marketing executive, Maureen Cubbon stated: ‘We are proud to be a sponsor of this promotion, which gives customers of Foster’s Food Fair and Kirk Supermarket a rewarding way to interact with the brands we distribute, as well as a chance to attend one of the world’s greatest sporting events. Our association with this promotion is in keeping with our longstanding support of local football through Foster’s Food Fair.’

Drawing date for the competition is May 28 at the CIFA/Foster’s League Finals.
